Product Liability in Auto Accidents
Were you in a
car accident that you know was not your fault but you are not sure if it was the other
driver’s either? It could be entirely possible that your collision
and injuries were actually caused by a dangerously defective auto part
in your vehicle. If this is the case, you may be able to pursue financial
compensation from the auto manufacturer who should have known better than
to allow you to use an unsafe automobile.

are prepared to take on big oppositions for our clients, such as auto

Common Auto Part Defects
When a manufacturer puts a part into a vehicle, they have an inherent,
unshakable responsibility to ensure that it is safe for use and will continue
to be safe for the expected lifespan of the automobile. If they have any
reason to believe that it is not adequate, it must not be sold to consumers.
When a problem is discovered in the future, they also have the responsibility
to let consumers know that their vehicle might be dangerous. If a full
recall be necessary, as it often is, the timeline for repairs or replacements
must be reasonably short, as to avoid endangering people for extended
periods of time.
Defective auto parts that can lead to a part liability case include:
- Tire blowouts
- Brake failures
- Dangerous or ineffective airbags
- Faulty wiring causing electric shock or fires
- Accelerators causing uncontrolled acceleration
- Seatbelts that come loose during a collision
