Vehicle Defect Accidents

VEHICLE DEFECTS CAUSING AUTO COLLISIONS

Being involved in an automobile collision can be traumatic—regardless of who is to blame. However, when your wreck is caused by a manufacturing or design defect, it can be even worse. Every year there are thousands of recalls on motor vehicles. Automobile manufacturers can be found negligent, if the defective vehicle, or defective part, led to an automobile wreck.

Automobile & Defective Parts

The features of a vehicle that can be defective are:

  • Seatbelts
  • Tires or tread separation
  • Airbags
  • Door latches
  • Roofs
  • Gas tanks
  • Gas Pedals
  • Suspension systems

If an airbag does not deploy, or a seatbelt fails, serious injuries or death can occur, creating unnecessary medical bills and suffering for both the victim and his family.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 390 million vehicles, including trucks and cars, buses, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, and mopeds have been recalled due to defective parts. They have also worked hard to recall 66 million different types of vehicle equipment, 66 million tires, and over 42 million child safety seats that were manufactured and released to the public with defects that created safety issues.

Unfortunately, there are defects that slip through—even though a recall may be announced. When this happens, dangerous and deadly accidents can occur.
