The Dangers Of Defective Auto Parts
A mechanical failure can occur in any type of vehicle, including cars, trucks and motorcycles. Defective components may be part of the vehicle’s structure, mechanics or safety equipment and may include:
- Brake failures
- Tire blowouts
- Steering system failures
- Defective seat belts
- Roof crush defects
- Air bag failures
- Faulty fuel tanks
- Headlight or turn signal malfunctions
- Faulty electrical systems
These types of defects can cause catastrophic or fatal injuries such as burns, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, organ damage, scarring and disfigurement. They may also result in wrongful death.
Injury victims who survive serious vehicle accidents may suffer temporary or permanent disability and need long-term medical care. We help these people and their families recover compensation from negligent manufacturers, designers and auto companies for losses such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost income.
