Disc Braking Systems
The braking system is one of the most important parts of any automobile. The brakes are solely responsible for slowing and stopping the vehicle when necessary. There are two particularly common braking systems in automobiles – drum and disc brakes. Most modern cars are equipped with disc brakes.
Brake failure can lead to severe motor vehicle accidents. If you or a loved one has suffered because of brake failure, the manufacturer or a negligent mechanic may be at fault.

The Need for Maintenance
Like anything on a car, brakes suffer from wear and tear and must be serviced. Changing the brake pads is perhaps the most frequently necessary service. When the material from the pad is worn away, the disc will come in contact with the brake system’s wear indicator and make a squealing sound every time you step on your brakes.
If this goes on for too long without performing any maintenance you could potentially score your brake rotors or eventually warp them. Mechanics can usually fix this problem by “refinishing” the rotors, but if the damage is too severe you may have to replace the brakes completely.
You should always be aware of any abnormal sounds or feelings when you push your brakes. If they produce squealing sounds or vibrate when you step on them, take your car to a mechanic.
You should not have to bear the financial burdens incurred by another party’s negligent manufacturing or mechanical work. The Lake Geneva car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. are prepared to help you as you seek to hold those persons accountable for the harm you have suffered.
