Computer Trouble and Your Car
Cars increasingly do more than ever to both regulate themselves and provide options to drivers. The lights and dials that provide an unprecedented amount of information to drivers just scratches the surface of the many automotive features made possible by computers. If your car is relatively new, it likely relies on its computer to precisely respond to your steering and braking. When all of these components function properly, they can save lives. When they malfunction, however, the results can be hazardous to the health of you and the passengers in your car.
If you have been hurt in a collision resulting from an onboard computer’s malfunction, you may be entitled to seek financial compensation.

Typical Problems from Computer Failure
Computer malfunction is nearly impossible to predict, and it can affect various systems in your car. This means that you could lose your navigation system, radio, or your power steering. There are many reasons that malfunctions can occur, and when they do, it might result in the following failures:
- Power steering
- Power braking
- Anti-lock brakes
- Engine warning
- Automatic transmission
The loss of any one of these systems can be catastrophic. Computer maintenance is necessary, but even if your mechanic is very thorough, problems may still arise due to unforeseen failures by the manufacturer.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident due to computer failure, you may be due financial compensation for medical bills, vehicle repairs, and other damages. Contact the Green Bay car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 today.
