There are many causes for car accidents, including driver inattention, substance abuse, and traffic violations, to name a few. However, a less often discussed but just as real cause of car accidents involve defective auto parts.
There are two specific kinds of auto defects, and within those, there are a variety of common auto part defects that occur. If you or a loved one were injured or killed in an accident due to defective auto parts, you could be eligible to file a product liability claim against the company responsible for the unsafe piece of machinery.
The majority of the attorneys that handle these cases work on a contingency fee basis, which means you won’t be required to pay for their services unless they win your case. Even the consultations are free, so it’s a good idea to contact an experienced car accident attorney and explain your situation. Car accident attorneys are familiar with the variety of common and even uncommon auto part defects and will be able to identify whether the manufacturer or the designer is liable for your damages.
Additionally, these attorneys have access to expert resources that have the tools and know-how to recreate the accident using data to determine when and how the auto part defect came into play.
Any kind of expense which occurs as a result of the injuries sustained due to an accident caused or made worse by a faulty auto part can potentially be compensated for in a product liability claim. This includes loss of expected income and funeral expenses in the unfortunate instance that a victim dies of their injuries sustained in one of these accidents. If you or a loved one were injured or killed in a car accident that involved defective auto parts, seek legal counsel to learn what an attorney can do to help you and your family.
