Does your car run perfectly all the time? Of course not.
As with all mechanical objects, a motor vehicle needs routine maintenance on a regular basis. Even then, routine repairs are not always enough and you will need to take your car to an auto repair shop.
A good car mechanic is an invaluable benefit to your life while a bad mechanic can make matters worse. Mechanics are sometimes stereotyped for promoting frivolous repairs so that they can make more money. However, the opposite extreme of failing to notice problems that do need fixing is much more dangerous. Mechanics can indirectly cause harm by overlooking the signs of a serious malfunction in a car system. Additionally, making an incomplete repair or failing to put the car back together properly could both lead to dangerous results; your vehicle may suddenly suffer a critical failure in traffic, leading to a serious motor vehicle accident.
Car Malfunctions and Roadway Horrors
It can be terrifying when the vehicle you are driving suddenly won’t respond or begins to malfunction unexpectedly. Some of the potentially disastrous system failures that can trigger a Wisconsin car crash include:
- Steering failure
- Tire blowouts
- Engine fire
- Engine stall
- Brake failure
- Suspension collapse
- Airbags fail to deploy or deploy unexpectedly
- Electrical system failures, including brake lights and turning signals
Your auto mechanic has the professional obligation to return your car in a safe and useable condition. If he does not honor this obligation, he bears responsibility if a vehicle failure causes a serious motor vehicle accident. He can be held liable for any injuries that result from his negligent car repairs.
