Motor Vehicle Computer System Failure
If your motor vehicle’s electrical system is not working properly, this defect or malfunction could endanger your safety. The interruption of electrical current can compromise a vehicle’s power steering and brake function. In newer models, it can also spell disaster for a variety of onboard computer systems. Increasingly, vehicles are reliant upon the refinements in function, safety, and performance that are made possible by computer technology, and while the improvements are clearly beneficial overall, in the event of an electrical failure, all of these defenses may be lost.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident that was caused by a failed motor vehicle computer system, you may be eligible for financial compensation to address the resulting expenses.

Defective Computers or Wiring
Your car’s computer system is responsible for much more than luxury systems like power windows or locks and if it is compromised, you could be at serious risk of injury. Losing power can result in any of the following:
- Difficulty starting your vehicle
- Loss of antilock brake system function
- Inability to warn driver of low or empty fuel tank
- Inability to shift gears while driving
- Airbag malfunction
Automakers have a responsibility to design and build vehicles that do not create needless additional dangers for those who drive or ride in them. When they fail to uphold this obligation to consumers, they should be held accountable for their negligence.
It is important that you are properly advised regarding your legal rights if you have been the victim of a car crash that was caused or made unavoidable by a computer failure. Contact the Rhinelander car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874 to learn more.
