Defective Windshield Wipers
Drivers often take for granted the fact that, when they need them, their windshield wipers will function as they are meant to. A clear day can quickly turn into a downpour, and wipers are necessary to make sure that drivers can see where they are going. Unfortunately, many people do not take the time to check there wipers for manufacturing defects, since they do not think of them as being as much of a risk as other possible defective components, like tires.
If a defective automobile part causes a person to be in a wreck, the manufacturer’s negligence may cause them to be liable for the personal and monetary damages caused during the accident. The Lake Geneva personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® can help determine if you may be entitled to compensation.
The Importance of Windshield Wipers
When a car is caught in a rain storm, the driver’s visibility becomes significantly lowered. In the unfortunate event that the vehicle’s wipers are defective, the motorist will have no way to clear the water from the windshield, and they can quickly become almost blind on the road.
This vastly increases the chance that the vehicle will collide with an obstacle, such as a pedestrian, cyclist, or other car. The results of such an accident can be catastrophic, causing serious injury to individuals inside and outside of the car.
If you have been injured in an accident caused by a defective automotive component, you may be entitled to compensation.
