Any given vehicle’s steering system is perhaps the most important component to how safe the car will perform. Steering system components can include the power steering pump, hydraulic lines, rack and pinion, and numerous other parts. If any of these parts fail, it could result in catastrophic injuries and tragedy. As auto manufacturers move to more sophisticated computerized steering wheel control systems, we are bound to see an increase in programming and manufacturing defects that result in these systems malfunctioning. However, computers are just one of the factors that can contribute to steering wheel defects. Suspension problems can also cause drivers to lose control of their steering and collide with other vehicles, objects, or pedestrians. Regardless of the cause, auto manufacturers are legally responsible to ensure all steering system parts work properly and are free of defects. If you have been involved in an accident that you believe was caused by a steering system defect, we encourage you to contact an attorney from Rad Law Firm. Our offices are conveniently located in Beverly Hills, CA as well as Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Brownsville, TX and our attorneys are available to talk today for free.

Common Causes of Steering System Defects

Your car’s steering system is designed to keep you safe and to help you safely get around road hazards, avoiding dangerous accidents. Sometimes steering systems fail and the result can be a devastating accident. Some of the causes of the failure can be faulty hydraulics to the power steering, a jammed steering lock, damage to the steering linkage, or a faulty power steering pump. Complete failure of the steering system may make the steering wheel virtually impossible to turn. Additionally, too much play in the steering system can cause the car to drift while you are driving, causing you to swerve into the wrong lane. Each of these defects can cause serious accidents, injuries, and even death.
