Defective Automotive Parts Can Cause Serious Accidents

Our team of California attorneys have extensive experience with defective automobile lawsuits. We have represented individuals of automotive manufacturing and design accidents for many years while advocating on behalf of the victims of defective brakes, tires, seatbelts, and even airbags. We have also handled cases with vehicle rollovers, burns, as well as unintended vehicle acceleration.

Defects in a car’s design and/or manufacturing can have dangerous consequences. These defects can be the result of a lack of research, product testing, or allowance of these vehicles to enter the market without warning consumers of their risks. Determining liability and damages for injuries sustained by victims of automotive product defects will depend on the many factors already mentioned. A professional attorney can fully investigate said defects and represent and advocate for clients with injuries because of these defects.

Understanding Recalls and Liability with Automotive Product Defects Injuries in California

It’s important that automobile manufacturers and retailers abide by safety and recall standards to protect consumers. They are legally responsible for the vehicles they make and also must be held liable for defect-related accidents and injuries when they occur in California.

  • Design defects occur when an engineering flaw leads to dangerous conditions
  • Manufacturing defects occur when a component of the car has design flaws
  • Inadequate warnings can happen despite the proper design or manufacture

How We Prove an Automobile is Defective

A product is defective if it contains unsafe parts or is defective in design or manufacturing or lacked proper warnings to consumers. The defect must have existed at the time the automobile left the hands of a manufacturer or retailer and the defect itself caused the injury centered on your lawsuit. For instance, tires may cause a vehicle to roll over and seatbelts may fail to protect an individual from being ejected from a vehicle. Airbags may also malfunction. Defective infant seats and booster seats can lead to automotive product defects injuries too.
