Typically, this happens when another driver is reckless. For instance, perhaps a motorist decides to get behind the wheel after a night of drinking. Then, they drive sporadically and cause a wreck. Additionally, other inappropriate behaviors that commonly produce accidents include failing to obey traffic laws, distracted driving, and drowsy driving.
However, manufacturers can also be to blame for incidents. Manufacturer's liability ensures that. It holds manufacturers and sellers liable for the harm their products cause. So, keep that in mind, and if you feel like you need to take action, we'll tell you who to contact at the end of the post. However, at this moment, it is time to move on to the next section to learn about a particular issue that could cause Sarasota residents grief.
Buick Regal Brake Problems
It has been brought to our firm's attention that there may be 24,000 Buick vehicles on the roadways with brake issues. The units are 2018 through 2020:
• Regal TourX wagons
• Regal sedans
• Regal Sportback hatchbacks
These cars could have a software error that makes the brake assist fail. In turn, if that happens, the hydraulic brake boost might not engage, causing the stopping distance for the vehicles to increase. Then, drivers will need to apply more pressure to the brake pedal to slow down and stop efficiently.
This dilemma increases the risk of a crash. So far, no accidents or injuries have been reported to the National Highway Safety Traffic Safety Administration, but that could change in the blink of an eye. After all, if there are cars on the streets with brake problems, anything is possible.
Types Of Injuries Caused By Car Crashes
When minor auto accidents occur, they sometimes only cause irrelevant cuts and bruises. However, in other instances, collisions are major and leave people severely hurt. Obviously, no two accidents are the same. Therefore, injuries will vary from one event to the next, but common wounds people sustain in crashes include broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, whiplash, and soft-tissue injuries.
Victims are left physically unable to perform the duties of their jobs. Thus, they have no paychecks coming in. Yet, their bills don't stop. Plus, they have new expenses for doctors, hospital stays, medications, etc. Some people may ask, "Why do victims seek compensation after car crashes?". The answer is for all these reasons and then some. Nobody should have to experience financial hardships because of another's negligence.
