A car’s headlights are some of the most important safety devices installed on modern automobiles. Driving at night is inherently more hazardous than driving during the day, and improper lighting on roads can create even more treacherous driving conditions. A driver needs to feel safe and secure when driving at night, and having well-working headlights is crucial to this.
Defective headlights can quickly create a potentially dangerous situation for drivers.

If you or someone you care about was injured because of faulty headlights, call our Lake Geneva car defect attorneys at 800-242-2874 immediately to discuss your case.
Dangers of Faulty Headlights
When an automobiles’ headlights work properly, they clearly illuminate the road in front and to the side of the car to allow the driver to see better. If there is a lack of street lights, building lights, and other sources of light around the driver, then headlights become even more vital to safe driving. If a car’s headlights fail, the risk of a collision increases dramatically. Headlights can fail to work properly in the following ways:
- Completely shutting off, leaving the driver in darkness
- Flickering on and off
A car’s malfunctioning headlights can greatly increase the chances of hitting pedestrians, animals, trees, other cars, and various other road hazards. It is imperative that headlights work properly in order to avoid the injuries of innocent people.
