Defective Brake Systems
Brake systems in vehicles are complex, involving discs, rotors, calipers, and hydraulic lines that must all work together properly in order for the brakes to function and stop the vehicle safely. Leaking hydraulic lines, brakes that overheat, discs that are not properly installed, and calipers that crack are just a few potential defective brake systems. When a brake system fails, you may lose all braking power and be unable to stop or slow down the vehicle. Brakes can become "mushy," giving you partial braking power but failing to slow or stop the vehicle quickly enough to avoid an accident. Brakes can grab, causing the vehicle to suddenly jerk to a stop unexpectedly. Defective brakes can also pull to one side, causing you to go off the road, into oncoming traffic, or causing a rollover accident.
