Who Can I Sue for a Car Accident Caused by Brake Failure?

Depending on the circumstances, the defendant(s) in your suit may be one or more of the following parties:

  • Manufacturer: If the brakes were defective due to shoddy materials or bad craftsmanship, liability could fall on the original manufacturer.
  • Automaker: A braking system’s functionality does not just rely on the quality of its materials and craftsmanship but also on proper installation. When brakes are improperly installed, whether due to human error or miscalculation, this can lead to mechanical breakdowns and consequently accidents. In many cases, the manufacturer and automaker are the same company.
  • Mechanic: If a mechanic inspected your brakes and unreasonably failed to spot major issues which later contributed to brake failure, he or she can be held liable for such negligence.

To determine the liable party for your brake failure accident, you must find out where in the chain of production the brakes became defective. This might, and most likely will, require a complex and time consuming investigation. Since evidence tends to fade with time, it is absolutely essential that you get a reliable attorney started on your case right away. The sooner, the better.

Recent Brake Failure Recalls

In recent years, multiple major auto makers have issued recalls impacting millions of vehicles with brake problems. Some of the more major recalls include the following:

  • Subaru recalled 72,000 newer-model vehicles because the pre-collision braking component of the driver-assist system could fail. Affected vehicles include 2015 models of the Impreza, Legacy, Outback, and XV Crosstrek.
  • The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has recently opened a probe into 250,000 large Ford trucks for potential power brake issues.
  • Toyota recalled 802,000 vehicles worldwide to fix flaws in the brake system, which could crack and result in the brake fluid leaking. This recall affects the Crown Majesta, Crown, Noah, and Voxy models produced between June 2007 and June 2012.
