An Overview of Auto Product Liability Claims in KS

Have you suffered an injury as the result of a flaw in your vehicle? If a defect in the design, manufacturing, or marketing of your car, truck, ATV, or motorcycle has caused you injury, you may be able to file a product liability claim in pursuit of monetary damages for your suffering.

Commonly occurring vehicle defects can include:

  • Airbags that deploy at improper times
  • Airbags that fail to deploy at all
  • Seatbelts that unbuckle during accidents
  • Cars sold with tires prone to blowouts
  • Motorcycles that “wobble” at high speeds
  • SUVs with high risk of rollover
  • Electrical defects that cause fires
  • Brake failure

In many cases, auto defects prompt car manufacturers to issue massive recalls and can be the subject of class action lawsuits. A lawyer can help you determine if your claim is eligible to be part of an already existing class action suit or if your injuries warrant filing your own separate claim.

Who Is Liable for My Injuries?

A number of different parties can be held liable for injuries stemming auto parts. Product liability cases of this nature can be filed against the manufacturers of defective vehicles and parts, automotive supply shops, car dealerships, shipping companies, and used car dealerships can be sued. Anyone involved in a defective vehicle or part’s distribution chain can potentially be held liable. An attorney can examine the specifics of your situation and help you determine which parties are responsible.
