Litigating accidents caused by a vehicle that failed to brake

Accident investigators in Michigan and around the country sometimes find it difficult to determine what happened in the moments prior to a collision. Distraction, intoxication or drowsiness is often suspected when no evasive action was taken before a crash, but accidents can also be caused by mechanical failure or a defect of some kind. Establishing liability is crucial in lawsuits filed on behalf of car accident victims, and plaintiff's attorneys may review police reports closely before deciding how to proceed when their client was hurt by a vehicle that failed to brake.
