Proper car maintenance can help you avoid an accident

While many individuals believe that accidents only happen because of someone’s actions while driving the vehicle, some car crashes are caused long before the individual gets behind the wheel. This is because vehicle maintenance is not always a top priority for people.

Vehicle maintenance is one of the more important things that drivers can do to ensure they are safe on the road. While we cannot control the actions of others, this is a way that we can prevent our own vehicles from dealing with problems and cause a collision. These steps can help, especially given the seasons in Southern California.


Your tires are extremely important as a flat or blowout could easily cause you to lose control of your vehicle and collide with others on the road. This makes checking your tire tread and the pressure a necessary step.

When the weather is colder, you may notice that your air pressure drops and when it heats up, it rises. Be sure to keep a close eye on this. Also, you can use the penny check to determine tread depth on your tires. If the tread is too low, consider buying new tires to ensure traction on the road.


If you brake approaching a light, stop sign or traffic and you hear loud screeching sounds coming from the tires, it means that your brakes may be bad. Your brakes are extremely important and when they’re bad, they can cause significant damage to your rotors, increasing the possibility you may not be able to stop in time to avoid an accident.


Be sure to check for potential recalls of your vehicle. These typically detail whether or not there’s a problem with your vehicle that could potentially cause a crash or significant damage as a result of a crash. This could include defects with the brakes, bad airbags, or other serious problems.

At Sachs Law, APC, we understand that if someone doesn’t properly maintain their vehicle and they cause a crash, they may be considered liable. If you’ve been injured, our California and Nevada car accident lawyers work hard to protect your best interests and guide you through the legal process from start to finish.

Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
