Steering systems are possibly the most critical part of your ability to control a vehicle; its components can include the power steering pump, hydraulic lines, rack and pinion, and other parts that can fail if not properly designed, manufactured, and/or installed. Power steering pumps can fail if hydraulic lines are defective or improperly installed, mounting bolts and brackets come loose or break, or the pump itself could be defective. A malfunctioning power steering pump can work intermittently with the vehicle alternating between resistance and responsiveness to steering. When it fails entirely, the wheels become difficult or impossible to turn. Jacoby & Meyers can protect your rights against the high powered attorney teams of negligent auto manufacturers.
