Who Is Liable for a Brake Failure Car Accident?

A car accident that involves brake failure – when the brakes of a vehicle malfunction and fail to slow down or stop the car – may have unique liable parties compared to other car accidents. The individual or entity that can be held liable, or financially responsible, will depend on the cause of the brake failure.

Possibilities include:

  • The owner of the vehicle: if you were driving someone else’s vehicle, such as a company car or borrowed car, you may have a case against the vehicle owner for negligent brake maintenance. Vehicle owners are responsible for having their brakes checked and repaired as necessary.
  • A product manufacturer: if brake failure occurred as a result of a product defect, the manufacturer or distributor of the brakes or auto parts that malfunctioned could be held liable. Defects can include design flaws, manufacturing mistakes and marketing errors.
  • An auto repair shop: if you or the owner of the vehicle took it to an auto repair shop where a mechanic failed to properly inspect the vehicle or notice signs of brake wear and tear, the shop could be held liable for failing to recommend brake repairs or replacement.

A comprehensive investigation of your accident may be necessary to determine why the brakes of the vehicle failed. The San Antonio personal injury lawyers from Hill Law Firm can conduct a complete investigation and hire qualified automobile experts, as necessary, to determine the liable party or parties in your car accident case.
