Defective Car Lawyers
There are several main categories where vehicle defects happen most often. They include:
When cars are designed, the manufacturer should keep in mind that many times cars do crash. Therefore, they should be designed to be “crashworthy”. This means that cars should be able to withstand a crash and keep passengers from being unnecessarily injured or killed. Carmakers have a legal responsibility to create cars that can keep passengers safe, if an injury of death is found to have been easily avoided had the car been designed better, a product liability claim may be made.
If tires are designed or manufactured incorrectly or with negligent care, it can have devastating results. Tire tread separations or blowouts can cause serious accidents and lead to injury, property damage or even death.
Air Bag Malfunctions
Air bags are designed to save life, but sometimes they fail. Air bag malfunctions in such ways as failing to deploy, deploying for no reason, deploying to hard/fast. These malfunctions can cause serious injuries like whip lash, suffocation or worse.
Defective Seat Belts
If seat belts are not manufactured correctly or are designed poorly, they can fail in the event of a car wreck. You are entitled to have good working seat belts in your car and if those seat belts do not protect you as they should in a car wreck, you may be entitled to compensation.
Cars are supposed to be designed to withstand the pressure in an event of a rollover. That means that if a car is in a serious wreck that causes it to rollover to an upside down position, the passengers will not be crushed. If a car roof crushes in the event of a rollover, serious injury or even death can occur.
