Traffic Brake lights were designed to radiate the rear-ends of vehicles to warn others in the vicinity a driver is applying their brakes and consequently slowing down. Brake lights were intended to protect not only a vehicle’s occupants, but also all other motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians on the road. Although electrical problems associated with the brake lights may not impact the actual brake functioning of a vehicle, faulty brake lights are still extremely dangerous because others may not be aware the driver is decelerating or stopping. When brake lights fail to illuminate, rear-end accidents are much more probable and can result in devastating injuries as well as fatalities to drivers and passengers alike.

Families that wanted the power, comfort, and seating capacity of an SUV and purchased General Motors Company’s (GMC) Yukon assuming that it would be safe to drive. Unfortunately, some Yukon owners ended up with defective SUVs that have unexpected malfunctioning brake light assemblies. After receiving countless grievances regarding the Yukon’s defective brake lights, GMC finally issued a program to repair the substandard condition. Regrettably, Yukon drivers might not even notice their brake lights are deficient until after another vehicle crashes into them. If you, or a loved one, have been seriously injured in a car accident because of the Yukon’s defective brake lights, you may be eligible to file a claim against GMC, the brake light manufacturer, and any other parties responsible for your injuries.

Product Liability For Your Faulty Yukon Brake Lights

Brakes are one of the most crucial safety components on all vehicles. Braking systems must function properly to keep occupants of vehicles safe and prevent unnecessary accidents. Sadly, some GMC Yukon owners discovered the hard way that their brake lights failed to illuminate. Designers, manufacturers, installers, and dealers of both the GMC Yukon and the brake light assemblies had a legal duty to ensure that their products did not pose any unreasonable safety risks to Yukon drivers, passengers, occupants of other vehicles, and all others on the road. When injuries occur because of intermittent or faulty brake lights, all responsible parties should be held liable. Although GMC was made aware of the defective brake lights through numerous complaints, the company made little effort to replace the hazardous brake lights, design safer braking systems, or warn owners about the possible dangers.

Under New York law, vehicles must be reasonably safe for their intended use. To demonstrate product liability, Yukon brake light accident victims must show that the intermittent brake lights were faulty and produced an unreasonable risk while driving. Product liability lawsuits, especially ones involving car systems, can be exceptionally technical, requiring extensive research, thorough investigations, and testing to prove successfully. The Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s veteran team has a long history of obtaining justice for victims of defective products.

Compensation For Victims Of Defective Brake Light Accidents

Car crash Many injuries and deaths that were caused by defective brake lights could have easily been avoided if GMC designed a safer Yukon. Regretfully, to reduce costs and increase profits, GMC produced substandard SUVs with dangerous brake lights.

Victims can pursue recovery for damages through a product liability claim, which may include compensation for:

  1. Past and future medical expenses for any accident-related injuries;
  2. Permanent disabilities suffered;
  3. All lost wages from missed time from work;
  4. Diminished future loss of earning capacity;
