Wisconsin Brake System Defect Lawyers
Brakes exist to give the driver control over the vehicle, allowing them the ability to slow down or stop when necessary. Their proper functioning is absolutely essential for roadway safety, as they allow drivers to avoid sudden collisions with oncoming vehicles, or to slow down when approaching an intersection. It is necessary, therefore, to ensure your brakes are regularly inspected and that they are working correctly. However, in some cases brake defects go undetected and can cause sudden, severe accidents.
People involved in accidents resulting from brake defects may sustain serious injuries. If you or someone you love had an accident as a result of the improper functioning of your vehicle’s brake system, the manufacturer may be liable for your injuries. At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C., our Wisconsin brake system defect lawyers believe that individuals who have been injured because of the negligence of others deserve to be compensated.

Kinds of Brake System Malfunctions
If a brake system is not properly manufactured or maintained, it can cause serious problems. Sometimes a malfunctioning brake system may make it difficult to slow down quickly enough or it may cause the brakes to fail to work at all. Some of the reasons for brake system malfunctions include:
- Poorly installed brake parts
- Worn brake pads
- Leaking brake lines
- Rusting of brake lines
- Defective pads, rotors, shoes, or drums
One or more of these issues can have serious consequences. If a manufacturer or brake inspector has failed to fulfill their responsibility to provide brakes that are safe, you may be able to seek compensation for your medical bills and other damages.
