Was Your Motor Vehicle Accident Caused By An Auto Defect?
We often attribute auto accidents to driver negligence, but this is not always the case. Many auto accidents occur because of a mechanical failure related to a particular vehicle component. In fact, estimates show that between 5 and 15 percent of all motor vehicle accidents happen because of an auto defect.
Auto Part Recalls
Large auto manufacturers frequently recall parts or products when they discover that they were defectively manufactured or dangerously designed to avoid product liability lawsuits. These recalls happen so often that it is difficult to keep track of them or even to be aware that they are happening.
With so many vehicles being recalled every year for defective parts, it is possible that your accident involved parts that were defectively manufactured.
Filing A Product Liability Lawsuit With The Help Of A Lawyer
If so, you may be able to pursue a claim against a manufacturer of the vehicle or vehicle part for injuries you suffered as a result of the defect. This is known as a product liability lawsuit.
