Los Angeles Braking Accident and Injury Attorney
Each time a person gets behind the wheel of their car, they have faith in their motor vehicle to keep them relatively safe and protected, and, at the very least, function as intended. Which is why a car accident caused by a defective vehicle part can be so shocking – it’s often the last thing a driver expects.
At the office of El Dabet Ritter Trial Lawyers, our Los Angeles braking accident and injury attorneys know how upsetting and tragic accidents caused by defective brakes can be. If you have been involved in a brake failure accident, or another accident type that resulted from a lack of proper braking, call our Los Angeles car accident lawyers today for a free consultation with trusted and experienced injury attorneys.
CAUSES OF BRAKING-RELATED ACCIDENTS
A “braking accident” refers to an accident that occurs because of a lack of proper braking, such as a rear-end collision, an intersection crash, or a failure to yield accident. There are numerous causes of braking-related accidents, including:
- Driver factors, such as driver fatigue, distraction, impairment, or aggression;
- Vehicle factors, such as a vehicle or brake defect, improper tire pressure, or weight and required stopping time of the vehicle; and
- Environmental factors, such as wet road surfaces, poor visibility, or road grade.
WHO’S LIABLE FOR INJURIES AND DAMAGES?
No matter the cause of a braking-related accident, the damages may be severe, especially if the vehicles involved were traveling at high speeds at the time of collision. To be sure, injuries might include traumatic brain injuries, head and neck injuries, back injuries, spinal cord injuries, bone fracture injuries, internal injuries, soft tissue injuries, and others. In addition to injuries, a victim may suffer high medical expenses, property damage costs, lost wages, and noneconomic losses such as emotional anguish and physical pain.
Recovering compensation for a braking accident requires determining the cause of the accident, and therefore the liable party. Determining the cause of the brake failure–driver factor, vehicle factor, or environmental factor–will necessitate a thorough investigation, most likely one that requires expert input. Our car accident attorneys have the resources necessary to fully investigate your case and hire experts to build your claim. Once the at-fault party is identified and evidence to prove such is collected, we will aggressively fight for your right to your full damages award. This claim may be brought against the individual driver, a vehicle or vehicle part manufacturer, the party responsible for vehicle maintenance or repairs, or another liable party.
