Types of Malfunctions

Modern brake systems have various redundancies built in them in order to make them significantly less likely to fail than the drum brake systems often found on older models; however, this does not mean they are exempt from failure. The following are a few examples of defects and damages that can result in serious accidents:

  • Improperly attached hydraulic lines
  • Overheating
  • Pad damage
  • Rotor damage

The injuries caused by unexpected brake failure can be catastrophic, leaving victims saddled with enormous medical expenses that they should not have to pay.
