When a car accident occurs, the question of liability (who exactly is responsible?) is almost always raised. Oftentimes, we assume that driver error is the default cause for damages and/or injuries that result from a crash. While dangerous driving practices and bad judgment can very well be the reason for a car accident, there are other times when damages and injuries are caused by the faultiness of a defective part within a vehicle, or from the dangerous design of a vehicle as a whole. If damages are caused by a part that was manufactured or a car that was designed in a faulty way, the manufacturer or seller may have failed their duty to the consumer under product liability law. In this area of law, faulty vehicle design or parts within a car poses a particularly high risk of injury or even death to a consumer, given the speed with which the car could malfunction. Some defective car parts that have triggered well-known cases in the past include: seat belts, airbags, gas tanks, door handles, tires, and gas pedals.
If you have been injured or caused other damages from a defective auto part or vehicle such as a car, truck, motorcycle, ATV, or other vehicle, you may have a product liability claim. Florin Roebig is a law firm with experience in product liability cases.
