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.

At Hutton & Hutton Law Firm, LLC, our Wichita personal injury lawyers are prepared to take on big oppositions for our clients, such as auto manufacturers who have teams of defense attorneys ready to shut down your claims. In the past, we have successfully recovered more than $400 million for our clients in personal injury cases, and we have done so through contingency fee agreements. This means that you do not have to pay any attorney fees upfront, and we will only ever collect our paycheck if we win you a settlement amount.

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

Seek Compensation with Our Auto Accident Lawyers

The details of a defective auto part may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car but the consequences are usually the same: undue pain and suffering.

To recover from your auto accident, you may require financial compensation for:

  • Vehicle repair or replacement
  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced standard of living

When you were unaware of the danger lurking in your own vehicle, how can you be expected to shoulder the responsibility of paying for the resulting damage? Auto part manufacturers need to be told through litigation that consumers are not going to allow them to get away with negligent and harmful business practices. Our Wichita car accident lawyers can be the ones to deliver that message on your behalf. We have experience representing a wide range of complex auto accident claims, involving multi-vehicle crashes and highway accidents.
