Motor Vehicle Defect Attorneys: Protecting Rights of Accident Victims
Motor vehicles can be as dangerous as they are useful. Since most people either own them, lease them, use them or are near them, they can impact the general public in many ways. Product liability laws are in place to give protection to the public from any dangerous or defective products, including manufacturing defects, design defects and marketing defects pertaining to motor vehicles. There are complex legal issues with a product liability claim, especially if the injury occurred because of a motor vehicle defect. Romanucci & Blandin has experienced motor vehicle product liability attorneys who will help you with your claim.
Defects and motor vehicle-based injuries
If you or a loved one was injured because of an auto defect, you can file a lawsuit against the car dealership, automobile designer, automobile manufacturer or marketing company. Most vehicles are mass-produced, and any defect in the vehicle generally affects numerous people, so the lawsuits are typically consolidated as a class action lawsuit.
There are incredibly serious and at times catastrophic injuries that an auto defect can cause, and sometimes the injuries are fatal. Auto defects can cause the following accidents:
- Airbag failure
- Automobile rollovers
- Door latch failure
- Gasoline fire
- Inability to stop
- Roof collapse
- Seat back collapse
- Seatbelt failure
- Tire blowouts
- Unintended acceleration
Motor vehicle product liability litigation
There are three main types of defects that you can claim in a product liability case involving a motor vehicle, which includes:
