Computer Failures in an Automobile
A motorist may lose control over his or her vehicle if the computer systems onboard fail. These computer systems are responsible for many of an automobile’s basic functions. An electrical problem or computer error can lead to a loss of control over a vehicle and the failure of important safety systems, both of which can have devastating effects on unsuspecting motorists.

Computer System Errors
Many modern automobiles rely on computers to function properly. These computers complete a variety of important tasks, resulting in improved steering, braking, and more efficient safety systems.
If a computer system fails while a car is in motion, a motorist is at a distinctly high risk of being injured in a collision. Dangerous computer system failures may occur because of any of the following:
- Electrical wire damages
- Battery failures
- Computer hardware malfunctions
- Computer software malfunctions
- Broken sensors
These defects can lead to extremely serious accidents and injuries if a failure occurs while a driver is traveling at high speeds or in congested traffic.
If you have been injured because of a malfunctioning automobile computer, there may be legal action available for you. To learn more about your options and rights as an injured motorist, contact the Wisconsin car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today by calling 800-242-2874.
