The Dangers of Defective Headlights

Unless you’ve experienced the terrifying, and perhaps catastrophic, failure of some vital system belonging to your automobile, it is difficult to imagine the danger and fear that accompany such an event. On the surface, headlights might not seem to quite qualify as vital, but if your headlights suddenly malfunction while you are driving at night, the road, no matter how familiar, becomes an incredibly dangerous place.

Though there are any number of reasons something like this could occur, all too often it is the result of manufacturer error or a design flaw. Accordingly, it may be appropriate to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit against the carmaker if you have been hurt in a crash caused by a headlight malfunction. Contact the Kenosha car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 to discuss your case.

Problems from Headlight Failure

Headlight troubles can be wide-ranging. While it may appear that a malfunction with headlights would be both immediately noticed and a simple fix, the truth is that the problems that manifest can be subtle. If, for example, your headlights are misaligned, they could be illuminating too little of the road ahead of you. Worse, perhaps, is the prospect of headlights that create a blinding hazard for oncoming traffic. Headlights are not meant to be pointed directly into someone’s eyes, and excessive brightness can cause accidents.

The worst scenario, however, is the complete failure of a headlight system while traveling high speeds on a rural road at night. This could render you unable to avoid obstacles, making it difficult to safely come to a complete stop.
