Can I sue a driver for brake failure that caused a Michigan car accident?

Yes, you can sue a driver for brake failure that caused a Michigan car accident. Brake failure accidents are a common cause of serious injury accidents because these crashes often happen at a high speed.  Under Michigan statute, an injured auto accident victim can sue the negligent driver for brake failure that caused the car accident.  These Michigan statutes include:

  • Failing to have said motor vehicle equipped with brakes adequate to control the movement of, and to stop and hold such vehicle, including two separate means of applying the brakes to at least two wheels, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.705.
  • Failing to use the available brakes that the car was equipped with.
