Madison Brake Defect Attorneys
Although any major vehicle defect can lead to a frightening roadway experience, there are few quite so terrifying as a malfunction affecting the brakes. It is more common for a vehicle’s brakes to slow or gradually deteriorate, but it is not impossible for a complete brake failure to follow a mechanical error. With either of these scenarios, a driver partially or fully loses the ability to adjust to road conditions, the pace of traffic, or even basic road curvatures or turns. This can lead to serious motor vehicle accidents.

Though most people only expect to worry about the engagement of the brake pedal, modern brake systems are very complex and require the successful function of numerous different parts. A defect can occur in any area of the brake system. Possible sites of failure include:
- Brake rotors
- Brake pads
- Brake shoes
- Brake drums
- The brake pedal
For most of these malfunctions, the result is a delayed brake time, not a sudden failure of the system. Usually, this is due to the parts’ increased pace of deterioration, meaning that these issues only grow into progressively longer brake times, increasing the potential for disaster. Although this often means that motor vehicles can be repaired before the defect brake causes an accident, that is not always the case, and injuries can still be caused by poor manufacturing.
If you have been injured due to a faulty brake system, regardless of whether the malfunction caused a complete or partial failure, there may be legal action available to you.
