Auto Defect Accident
In our years of experience investigating and litigating auto accident cases, we at Khashan Law have come to the conclusion that auto defects are the reason for most of the accidents. Injuries caused by auto defect accident are worse than any other type of automobile accident. Serious injuries and in some unfortunate cases death, can cause a lot of financial strain to the victim and their families. When automobiles are manufactured, the manufacturers are well aware about the shortcomings and auto defects if any in the vehicle. Yet they try to cover them up and sell. Hence auto manufacturers should be held liable for any kind of auto defect accident.
Defective automobiles and malfunctioning components like tires, clutch and brakes result in serious auto effective accidents, injuring and killing thousands of Americans each year.
The Federal law makes it mandatory for auto manufacturers to report a safety defect in the vehicles, within five days of knowing about the defect. It is the duty and responsibility of Auto manufacturers to manufacture and sell vehicles which are safe for the consumers. When the components of the vehicle or any of the safety features provided are defective or malfunctioning, the consumer is at a high risk in event of a crash or an unforeseen incident.
Types of Auto Defect Accident cases:
When a consumer purchases a vehicle, he is expecting it to be in perfect working condition right from the engine to the air bags to the brakes. Unfortunately, auto defects keep occurring regularly, injuring thousands of innocent drivers. Below are some examples of auto defects which can end up into a disastrous auto defect accident:
- Brake failures
- Improper releasing or opening of the airbag
- Structural collapse like roof collapse etc.
- Substandard roof designs
- Defective Seat belts
- Bursting of tires
- A substandard design of the fuel system, causing fires after a collision or accident
- Defective Automatic braking function
When you purchase a vehicle, you are very excited and believe it to be safe to drive. However if the auto manufacturer delivers a defective, malfunctioning vehicle, then they should be held accountable for the accident or crash which occurred because of the flaw or defect.
