Brake failure can create an extremely hazardous situation that could easily lead to a serious car accident and severe injuries. Injury victims have the right to seek full compensation from the parties who were responsible for the failure. Many factors can contribute to brake failure, and proving liability can be difficult.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident that was caused due to a vehicle’s brake failure, not just any personal injury lawyer will do. Your attorney should have experience with defective brake cases and be able to identify the parties whose negligence led to the accident. At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd P.A. in Fayetteville, we represent North Carolina injury victims in a wide variety of complex auto accident claims.
One of the most important aspects of accidents that involved brake failure is identifying the responsible parties. In some cases, the owner of the vehicle may have been advised that the brakes needed replacement. If he or she failed to replace the brakes, a case could be made against the owner for driving an unsafe vehicle. In other cases, an auto shop could be held liable for negligent repair or there could be a claim against the manufacturer of the brakes for a product defect.
We will fully investigate the matter, using every resource at our disposal in an effort to determine who was at fault for the brake failure. If multiple parties share responsibility, we will look into the possibility of seeking compensation from each of them. We are committed to securing maximum compensation in your case.
Whether it was your brakes that failed or the brakes on the vehicle that hit you, we will pursue every available option in an effort to see that you are fully compensated for the injuries you suffered as a result.
