Electrical Systems Failure
A vehicle requires a properly working electrical system to run safely on the road. If these systems malfunction due to poor wiring or a defective part, a driver can lose an important function of their vehicle. This can make driving significantly more dangerous. In some cases, an electrical failure can effectively stop a vehicle from running.

Problems with Electrical Systems
As motor vehicle technology has progressed, a greater variety of functions within an automobile are dependent upon electrical systems. When these systems falter or fail, a vehicle’s critical safety features may be rendered inoperable or ineffective. If a battery dies, all systems will shut down. This can leave a motorist in an extremely dangerous situation. The following issues may arise from faulty wiring or a defective part:
- Loss of lights
- Loss of turn signals
- Loss of power braking
- Loss of power steering
- Loss of onboard computers
- Loss of safety warnings
The danger posed by the loss of any of these functions of your motor vehicle is significant and could easily result in an unnecessary collision that you will be helpless to prevent. Negligent automakers or mechanics should be held accountable for the consequent damages.
If you or someone you love has been injured because of defective wiring or a malfunctioning part, there may be legal action available. For more information, contact the Green Bay car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by calling 800-242-2874.
