Hurt in a Car Crash Due to a Defective Vehicle?
Florida Auto Accident Attorneys Help Faulty Car Part Victims Nationwide
With offices in Orlando, Florida, and Albuquerque, New Mexico, our auto accident attorneys know firsthand that negligent drivers seem to flood the roads of major cities. Sadly, these distracted motorists risk causing automobile accidents and severe personal injury to others. While numerous efforts can help you avoid dangerous drivers, sometimes, your own vehicle actually poses the greatest threat to your safety.
Many car accidents are the result of defective auto parts produced or installed by a manufacturer. Auto defects can occur because of poor design, faulty manufacturing, low-quality materials and improper installation of parts. Orlando personal injury lawyer William McBride believes that no person or family should ever suffer a preventable personal injury or wrongful death due to a defective vehicle. If you or your family has been involved in a car accident due to a defective auto part, the personal injury attorneys of McBride, Scicchitano & Leacox, P.A. in Florida, New Mexico and Colorado serve accident victims nationwide. We are on your side.
Defective Vehicles are Causing Car Accidents Nationwide
It is the obligation of every vehicle manufacturer to ensure the auto parts they sell are safe. This legal responsibility to the consumer is referred to as product liability. Sadly, this does not always occur. Common auto defects that can compromise a vehicle’s safety include:
- Defective airbags
- Defective tires
- Seat belt failure
- Defective design
- Auto roof crush
- Trailer sway truck accidents
- Failing steering components
- Leaking fuel components
- Poor crashworthiness
- Poorly insulated wiring
- Stuck accelerators
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) noted that car defects typically exist when a part of a vehicle poses a risk to a vehicle’s safety, or when “a group of vehicles of the same design or manufacture, or items or equipment of the same type of manufacture,” endanger a large group of drivers.
Multiple parties may be responsible for a personal injury or wrongful death caused by auto defects. You may be entitled to file a product liability claim and personal injury lawsuit against a vehicle manufacturer, part manufacturer, dealership, safety certification company or the mechanic shop that installed the part.
