Brake Problems & Braking Defects

Braking systems are complex and have numerous parts that must be correctly designed and manufactured to work properly, including:

  • Disc brake pads and rotors
  • Brake shoes
  • Brake drums
  • Brake lines and hoses
  • Brake master cylinders
  • Brake fluid
  • Brake pedals
  • Anti-lock brake system (ABS) control modules
  • Wheel speed sensors

A defect in any part of a braking system may cause the brakes to work less effectively, taking far longer to slow the vehicle. It can also cause the brakes to fail completely. Either scenario may cause an accident or worsen an imminent collision.
