Motor Vehicle Defects
Vehicles have been recalled for various reasons regarding defects over the past twenty years and more. Such defects cause accidents like vehicular fires, explosions, faulty seat belts, defective airbag systems, obstruction of views, tire blow-outs, engine malfunctions, loss of control, loss of brakes, and much more. Adults, teens, and children have been killed, disfigured, paralyzed, scalded, burned, and seriously injured from motor vehicle accidents caused by auto defects and malfunctions.
Automotive manufacturers retain state of the art equipment and technology to produce vehicles that can render a safe collision course for passengers and drivers; so there is no excuse for them to make such devastating mistakes. They often rush a new line of vehicles out to the market allowing their economic agendas outweigh proper consideration for safety. So crucial corners are cut when it comes to adequate safety features in order for them to get their product on the dealership floors faster; only this comes back to haunt them later. The result is usually some form of automotive product liability lawsuit.
Here are some examples of the most common vehicular defects in popular make and model cars and trucks that were pulled from the market for liability reasons:
• Defective Tires
• Airbag System Defects
• Seat Belt Defects
• Electrical Circuit Defects
• Faulty Car Doors (allowing ejection in an accident)
• Defective Car Roof Structures (can roll-over or crush victims in an accident)
• Fuel System Defects (PCFFF, or Post Collision Fuel Fed Fire)
• Defective Side-Impact Features
• And More
If you or a loved one was recently injured in a motor vehicle accident as a result of another person or entity’s negligence, including defective automobiles, contact a car accident injury lawyer right away and learn your rights to compensation.
