Missing Brake Lights
Brake lights are something you truly cannot do without on your vehicle. It is the responsibility of every motorist on the road to make sure that his or her car is in proper working order, and failing to fix a broken brake light is a dangerous act of negligence that can result in serious and preventable car accidents.
If you have ever driven behind a car without functioning brake lights, you know how nerve-wrecking it can be. It becomes difficult to determine whether or not the person ahead of you is braking or not, and it puts both of you in incredible danger. If you have been in an accident resulting from another vehicle’s brake light failure or missing brake lights, you may be entitled to compensation.

Causes of Malfunctioning Brake Lights
When something goes wrong with brake lights, it is most likely a result of one of the following:
- Faulty Connections: both wires and fittings can become damaged over the life of a vehicle
- Loose or Broken Bulbs: bulbs need to be checked regularly for both of these issues
- Burnt Fuses: if a fuse goes out, often multiple items fail at once—this can include brake lights
As soon as a driver becomes aware of any of the above problems, it is his or her responsibility to address the problem as soon as possible. Failure to do so may make him or her liable for any accidents that result from his or her missing brake lights.
