Complaint - Service Brakes

BEFORE I FINALIZED THE PURCHASE OF THE CAR, IT WAS EXAMINED THOROUGHLY BY A MECHANIC. THE 2001 FORD FOCUS' TITLE WAS TRANSFERRED TO ME A WEEK AND A HALF PRIOR TO THE ACCIDENT. ON THE DAY OF THE CRASH, IT WAS A MISTY DAY AND THERE WAS A FAIR AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC. I SLOWED DOWN WHEN I SAW AN ACCIDENT ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. WHILE IN THE PROCESS OF COMING TO A STOP, THE BRAKES FAILED AND I CRASHED INTO THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME THAT HAD COME TO A SUDDEN STOP. THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN ENOUGH SPACE FOR ME TO STOP SAFELY, BUT I SLID. THE AIRBAGS DEPLOYED WHEN THE COLLISION OCCURRED, WHICH SMASHED THE WINDSHIELD. SHORTLY AFTERWARD, THE PERSON FROM WHOM I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE HAD MENTIONED SHE HADN'T LIKED THE PERFORMANCE OF THE BRAKES, EVEN WHEN THE CAR WAS NEW.
