Defective Automobiles and Auto Parts
Although most of us don’t think twice about driving automobiles every day, defective automobiles and their component parts can blindside us. Thousands upon thousands of Americans die in car accidents every year. Crashes are extremely common, and therefore the manufacturers of vehicles have a duty to make sure that the automobiles they produce are safe and able to protect drivers and passengers in the event of accidents. Automobile manufacturers could be subject to liability when their products do not meet reasonable safety standards. Common examples of defective automobiles/auto parts include: seat belt failure, unintended acceleration, defective air bags, SUV rollovers, steering defects, defective tires and tire blow outs, crushed roofs, exploding gas tanks, and more.
Illustrative of the defective automobile problem is the rash of litigation in recent years involving Toyota Motor Corp. The company’s cars have been causing deaths and serious injuries when they accelerate out of control. Toyota has been trying to point fingers at dealerships, accusing them of improper floor mat installation that holds the accelerator in the open position. If you have been injured because of a defective Toyota vehicle or any other defective automobile, call a lawyer to ensure that you will be compensated.
