Sheboygan Brake Defect Attorneys
Among the three most important and obvious control systems that a driver can direct, braking can be one of the most crucial in accident avoidance. However, even if brakes do not fully fail, a compromised brake part may elongate brake times drastically enough to cause serious complications. When it comes to brake-related defects, this is usually the case. It is rare, although not at all impossible, that a brake will completely quit on a driver. Instead, defective brakes often put drivers in situations in which they cannot brake fast enough to avoid contact or reduce speeds to prevent going off-road.

Related Part Failures
Modern brake systems are fairly complex and require that each of the major parts function properly in order to enable safe deceleration. However, a defect in any one of the following locations can have serious consequences on that vehicle’s performance:
- The brake pedal
- Brake shoes
- Brake drums
- Brake pads
- Brake rotors
As previously stated, it is unusual that a brake system will altogether stop working. This can be deceptive, however. Accidents such as roll-overs do not require massive system failures, instead only needing insufficient slowing to occur. In this sense, brake malfunctions can be particularly dangerous.
A manufacturer has a responsibility to construct a vehicle that will not needlessly endanger the driver and his or her passengers. If you have suffered an injury because of the negligence of a vehicle manufacturer, a civil lawsuit may be appropriate.
