Injured by a Defectively Designed Vehicle?
Defective Vehicle Lawyer Fighting Against Negligent Corporations
At a young age, personal injury attorney in Orlando William McBride watched his family suffer due to the unjust actions of another person. Ever since then, he has committed himself to protecting and fighting for the rights of other families who have suffered due to someone else’s mistakes and negligence. If you or a family member were seriously hurt due to a defective automobile, Attorney McBride is on your side.
A vehicle’s design and manufacture affects every person who occupies it, whether as a driver, passenger or other motorist sharing the road. If the initial design of the vehicle is unsafe on any level, the people in the vehicle are at a greater risk for receiving serious personal injuries during an auto accident. When a car crash does occur, if it is determined that the vehicle’s design was a factor in the injuries suffered by the vehicle occupants, the vehicle manufacturers can and should be held responsible for making restitution to the victims of the accident.
What Happens in Auto Accidents Caused by Defective Vehicles?
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated that approximately 8 percent of all fatal motor vehicle accidents are caused by vehicle defects. This translates into thousands of deaths every year, and countless more catastrophic personal injuries.
Each defective vehicle lawyer at the McBride, Scicchitano & Leacox, P.A. knows how to evaluate the many aspects of a car accident and can determine whether automobile design defect played a factor in the extent of damage and injuries suffered. We will also investigate whether multiple parties may be liable for the accident, including the:
- Vehicle company

- Mechanical shop that installed the defective part
What are Types of Defective Design that Cause Car Accidents?
There are many different areas where defective vehicle design can result in injuries. Defective design can result in malfunctioning:
- Fuel systems
- Seat belts

- Traction control
Vehicle companies, part manufacturers and mechanics all have a duty to ensure their products and services are safe and reliable for their customers. When they fail to uphold this duty, it is essential that they are held responsible for the danger their products presented to both their customers and the general public under automobile products liability law.
