Causes of Brake Malfunction
When designing a vehicle, conducting an inspection, or performing maintenance, a careless individual may fail to acknowledge a problem that could lead to brake malfunction. When this occurs, this negligent party may be responsible for any subsequent accidents. Some of the common causes of brake malfunction include:
- Use of low quality parts
- Leaking liquids onto the braking system
- Hydraulic lines that are not properly maintained, installed, or monitored
- Damage to brake pads
