Parking Brake problem

The vehicle was parked in a flat parking lot and the parking brake failed. The first time, the parked car rolled backwards and hit a sign. No person was injured. I thought that pehaps the pedal was not fully depressed. The second time, about 3 weeks later, the vehical rolled backwards and hit another vehicle. I had to call the insurance company and file a claim. I intend on bringing the car to the dealership, however after doing a bit of research on the internet, it seems to be a common problem, and I wanted to make sure to report it, because it has the potential to be fatal.
