How Brakes Can Fail and Cause a California Automobile Accident

If faulty brakes are to blame for a California automobile accident, you might be eligible to file a San Diego accident claim. Even when brakes are properly maintained, they can still fail and cause serious injuries and property damage.

Since it can be very difficult to prove that brake failure may have contributed to your car crash in San Diego, you would benefit by having San Diego accident lawyers and their experts collect and analyze evidence to prove your case.

When Brake Failure Causes a California Automobile Accident

Brakes can fail for a number of reasons, including:

  • brake shoes or pads harden and become less effective at stopping the brake drum;
  • oil or grease saturates the brakes;
  • power brake booster loses power; and/or
  • hot spots develop, causing a loss of friction, which is necessary for brakes to properly work.


You rely on your brakes to protect yourself and your family, so when they fail through no fault of your own and cause a car crash in San Diego, you may be entitled to compensation in an accident claim. To help your case, you should make sure that your vehicle and brakes are preserved so they can be presented as evidence. To learn more about brake failure, please visit our article library.
