Brake failure can lead to traffic accidents and resulting lawsuits, as brakes are one of the most important mechanisms in any type of automotive vehicle. Because brakes are only one piece of engineering within the overall design of an automobile, experts in brake failure will have additional expertise in the automotive engineering and mechanical aspects of roadside vehicles, including automotive electrical systems, air bags, tire failure, occupant restraints, steering, hydraulics, and other important details.
In the event of a traffic accident, accident investigation and reconstruction can often be utilized to determine whether the accident was caused by human error or a mechanical failure. Brake failure is not the result of human error, meaning that the cause of an accident would be that of an engineering flaw, which could bring about a legal claim against the automotive engineers, manufacturers, repair shops, as opposed to the driver and/or passengers.
Brake failure, however, may also be the result of negligence regarding vehicle maintenance. It is also the responsibility of the owner of each automobile to receive brake service and maintenance, as not doing so can cause mechanical problems. Whoever performs the brake service may also be responsible for brake failure, which can be determined by an evaluation conducted by a brake failure expert.
