How Can a Defective Brakes Attorney Help?

If your claim relates to a product defect, it will not be easy to go up against a brake manufacturer as a consumer without representation from an accident lawyer. Part and vehicle manufacturers have extensive resources and aggressive legal teams to help defend them from claims. Manufacturers will want to make their investors money, not admit fault or pay claimants for bad brakes. If your case is a class action, with multiple plaintiffs with similar accidents, it can be even more difficult to sort through your case. Hiring a car accident lawyer takes the burden of legal action off your shoulders. Your Phoenix car accident attorney can handle the claims process against the correct defendant while you focus on your physical recovery.

Who Is Liable for Brake Failure?

When the brakes give out on a vehicle, someone could be to blame. A lot of things can go wrong with a vehicle’s brake system, from compromised hydraulic lines to worn-out brake pads. Assessing the brake problem during an investigation of the auto accident could point to the person who might be liable.

  • The vehicle owner. If someone else crashed into you and cited bad brakes, the owner of the vehicle could be liable for the neglect to properly inspect and maintain his or her car. It is every owner’s legal duty to properly maintain his or her vehicle.
  • The mechanic. Defective brakes could also point to the liability of the auto mechanic responsible for working on the vehicle. Improperly replacing brakes, ignoring signs of a problem or using poor-quality parts are examples of mistakes a mechanic could make.
  • The brake manufacturing company. Poor brake design, manufacturing defects or faulty installation instructions could give you grounds for a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of the brakes.

The lawyers at Gallagher & Kennedy can help you determine fault by examining the facts of your recent Phoenix auto accident. Negligence can compromise a vehicle’s brake system at many points, from brake manufacture to maintenance. We can get to the bottom of the cause of your car accident to determine the appropriate defendant.
