It takes a good amount of force for brakes to effectively stop heavy cars, trucks and other vehicles. There are many reasons why brake failure happens, including:

  • Failure to install a brake shift interlock
  • Defective parking brake system
  • Problems with brake system hydraulic lines
  • Defective anti-lock brakes
  • Poor manufacturing of brake rotors, drums or pads

Our firm will look to see whether negligence could have occurred on the part of the vehicle manufacturer, the brake manufacturer or another party who is responsible for the brake failure.
