    How Automotive Defects Happen Such as Defective Tires

    Defects in a car’s design and/or manufacturing can have dangerous consequences. These defects can be the result of a lack of research, improper product testing, or failure to warn consumers of the risks of potentially hazardous vehicles and/or vehicle parts. 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 & Liability with Automotive Product Defects in California

    t’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.

    Different types of automotive defects and how they occur include:

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

    How We Prove an Automobile Is Defective or a Lemon

    A product is defective if it contains unsafe parts or is defective in design or manufacturing, or if it lacked proper warnings for consumers. The defect must have existed at the time the automobile left the hands of a manufacturer or retailer. Additionally, we must prove that the defect itself caused the injury involved in your lawsuit.

    For instance, tires may cause a vehicle to roll over and seatbelts may fail to protect an individual from being ejected from the car. Airbags may also malfunction. Defective infant seats and booster seats can lead to automotive product defects injuries, too.

    How to Win a Product Defect Case in California
