Battery Defect Accidents
In modern cars, the majority of critical systems are managed electrically, meaning that a loss of electrical power results in significantly diminished control over the vehicle. In situations like this, the driver will not have access to power steering controls, power braking, anti-lock brakes, traction control, or many of the myriad other safety systems designed to assist in safe operation of the vehicle. Such loss of control can easily result in a serious accident and significant injury.

Causes of Battery Defects
Power is generated in a car battery by a chemical reaction between the special acid and metal within the device, which provides electricity for the vast number of systems in your vehicle. The battery operation can be jeopardized by the following defects:
- Insufficient electrolyte content
- Faulty terminals
- Corrosion sufficient to interfere with the transfer of charge
When a battery failure occurs while the car is being operated, the driver and others nearby are put in serious risk of accident and injury.
