Auto Defects

Automakers are occasionally forced to recall vehicles after it is discovered that these products have defectively designed or manufactured parts. Some of the most common parts of motor vehicles that can be defective include, but are not limited to:

  • Airbags
  • Brakes
  • Child Safety Seats
  • Fuel Systems
  • Roof Stability
  • Seat Belts
  • Steering Components
  • Tires
  • Windows
  • Windshields

When people are occupants of automobiles with defective parts, they may lose control of the vehicles or find themselves unable to escape in emergencies. These situations can result in highly serious head, brain, or spinal cord injuries that lead to astronomical medical expenses and several years of treatment and rehabilitation. In some of the worst cases, people die because of these defects.

An automaker or motor vehicle part manufacturer needs to make sure that the products they are selling have been safely designed and are being built free from defects. When people are hurt because of preventable errors in the construction of these vehicles, then the companies that made the motor vehicles can be considered negligent. This would make the automakers or product manufacturers liable to any accident victims for the physical and financial harm caused by the defects.

The manufacturers of motor vehicles or automobile parts will usually try to deny their liability. In some cases, they may blame any accidents on being the result of other parts being faulty. In other cases, they may argue that the users were the ones who failed to properly utilize the products and they were at fault for their own accidents. When automakers or parts manufacturers know they are liable, their insurance companies will often aggressively seek settlements that are for much less than what victims are entitled to.
