There may be nothing more frightening on the road than hitting your brakes and getting no response. Rear-end crashes that happen at full speed can result in extremely serious injuries for everyone involved. If you were unable to stop your car because of defective brakes, you may be able to seek full damages for your own injuries and avoid responsibility for any injuries caused to other people involved in the accident.
These cases can be quite complex, because the auto or parts manufacturer will likely do anything possible to avoid responsibility. In many cases, the blame is pointed back at you for improper driving or maintenance when the actual cause was defective equipment. No matter how your accident happened, it is critical that you seek the advice of an experienced Long Island auto defect accident attorney right away.
