Brake Light Failure
People are able to perform regular maintenance on many parts of their vehicle, but some parts are only likely to be addressed when it becomes apparent that they are broken. In the case of headlights, it is relatively easy to tell when one of these has gone out. For brake lights, on the other hand, unless one’s vehicle has a warning system, it is unlikely that a driver will be aware of brake light failure due to the placement of the lights.
When brake lights are not replaced timely or fail to work due to a defect or malfunction, dangerous accidents can result. If you or your loved one has been hurt in a collision caused by brake light failure, you may be able to pursue financial compensation.

Broken Brake Lights
When it comes to navigating traffic, we count on the vehicles around us to be equipped with signals that allow us to know when they are performing maneuvers about which other drivers need to be alerted. Brake light failure can typically be attributed to one of the following:
- Fuses: when fuses burn out, look out for other electrical components in your car to also act up
- Connections: if something comes loose, or a wire snaps, your lights could quit working
- Bulbs: if a bulb breaks of comes loose, it may not illuminate properly, if at all.
When you have been the victim of a car owner’s negligence or a manufacturer’s failure to provide a safe and functional automobile, a civil lawsuit may be appropriate.
