Massachusetts Personal Injury Lawyer For Brake Failure

It is imperative that the brakes on your vehicle function properly because a malfunction can have devastating consequences. Even if you meticulously maintain your brakes, they can still fail due to a product defect or negligent design. The parts manufacturer, distributor, car company or dealer may be liable if injuries result by such a defect. Examples of potentially defective parts leading to brake failure are:

  • The hardening or crystallizing of brake pads making brake drum grip impossible
  • Defectively designed rotors or drums that can form hot spots, rendering grip impossible
  • Loss of engine vacuum that causes the brake booster to lose power
  • Defectively designed or manufactured brake lines that, if leaked, cause a sudden loss in brake pressure
