Defective Headlight Dangers
Though most drivers take it for granted, night time is a very dangerous time to be navigating the roadways. This has largely to do with the fact that visibility is poor at night, and drivers do not often compensate for this fact. Defective headlights can make this situation incredibly dangerous. Headlights are tremendously important, not just because they help us see what is on the road ahead, but because it helps our car be seen by other drivers on the road. When they go out, disaster is more likely to strike.
Unfortunately, manufacturers can and do make mistakes when designing or installing lights on a motor vehicle. Malfunctioning headlights are a noticeable enough problem that many drivers will be able to identify and correct the issue before it is too late, but some people are not so fortunate. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a crash resulting from defective headlights, contact the Green Bay car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874.
At high speeds, the darkness of the road at night renders a motorist who is suddenly without functioning headlights particularly helpless. Slowing down and getting off the road becomes a priority, but without the aid of light, pulling over onto an unlit shoulder is its own hazard. This scenario is not the only way in which manufacturer error or defective devices can affect your driving experience. Improperly aligned lights might blind oncoming traffic, or fail to illuminate the road sufficiently.
