With these types of injury claims, the accident itself is sometimes caused by a negligent driver, but injuries can also occur because there is a vehicle malfunction. If you have been in an accident and your vehicle did not protect you or failed to operate the way that it should, and that caused your injury, you should take immediate legal action.

What constitutes a defective auto product?

Whenever a vehicle malfunctions, it could lead to catastrophic injuries for the driver or the passengers inside. Typically, the root of the problem lies in the automobile design or in defective car parts that were not made or installed properly on the vehicle. If you are unsure as to whether your case was caused by a defective auto product, we will need to do a little further investigation into your case. My firm can look deeper to ensure that your vehicle has all the standard and required parts and components that it should have. Beyond that, the vehicle can undergo a thorough inspection to make sure that all of the parts installed in the vehicle were not salvaged, altered, or dismantled in any way.

When filing a products liability claim, it is vital that you obtain an experienced attorney before filing any claims and settling your case. This is crucial because the at-fault party and the insurance adjusters will be looking for ways to shift liability back onto you and to find a reason to deny you compensation. If you think you have a potential case, get an attorney involved as soon as possible. Here at my firm, I deal with auto products liability cases on a regular basis. I know what evidence to look for and how to preserve it and use it for your benefit. With every auto products liability case that I take on, there is usually one of three major forms of negligence involved. Those include:

  1. Design Defect - The way the car manufacturer designed the vehicle leaves drivers and passengers in danger of injury. If their chosen design creates a higher risk of harm, that could be the major cause for your injury. For example, if the designer chose to put the fuel tank in a place where it could be easily crushed or broken, and thereby cause the car to catch fire in the event of a crash.
  2. Manufacturing Defect - While manufacturing the vehicle, there was a negligent act or some type of omission that made the vehicle unsafe for operation. The most common example of this is with tires or seat belts. If a tire is not manufactured correctly, the tread could end up coming undone, causing separation, which could lead to a tire blowout and a possible rollover.
  3. Warning Defect - When the vehicle does not contain the proper warning labels to inform drivers or passengers of possible dangers or risks, you could have a possible case. This form of negligence is referred to as "failure to warn" because ultimately the manufacturer was aware of the problem but did not inform the consumer of those possible dangers on any type of warning label.
