Injured by a Defective Automobile?

Get our Los Angeles product liability lawyers on the case!

In Los Angeles traffic, people depend on the safety and reliability of their vehicles—possibly more so than anywhere else. Vehicles are made up of a large number of features, and it only takes one defective or improperly designed part cause a devastating accident. If you or a family member has been seriously injured by a defective automobile or automobile part, you should speak with one of our Los Angeles product liability attorneys.

If your injuries were primarily caused by the faulty car part, there is a chance a legal advocate can help you recover the compensation that you are due. This usually includes damages for injuries, medical bills, future medical bills, loss of wages, future loss of wages, pain and suffering and more.

Prominence of Safety Recalls

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) investigates potential automobile defects and has the ability to order manufacturers to recall defective vehicles or parts and remedy the situation. An order may be necessary when the manufacturer has not already issued a recall on its own.

Historical recall numbers show that defective vehicles are no small issue and have been prominent for numerous years. The NHTSA has overseen more than 502 million vehicles since 1966, according to a New York Times article published several years ago.

While recalls exist for the purpose of keeping drivers safe, it is not always possible to prevent accidents and injuries that result from faulty automobile products. In some instances, recalls are not issued in a timely manner, or they are not issued at all. These types of mistakes—along with the actual manufacturing mistake—can lead to accidents, which can cause injury, or even death.

Pursuing Your Claim with Aggressive Representation

Automobile defects can occur at various stages, such as the manufacturing process or the shipping process. That means you will have to determine which party or parties are responsible for your injury and thus obligated to compensate you.

In order to have a strong product liability, you will need to show:

  • Your vehicle or vehicle part had an unreasonably dangerous defect that caused your injury;
  • The injury was obtained when the product was being used properly; and
  • You did not substantially change the product from the condition in which it was sold.

Vehicles that are allowed to enter the market with faulty parts, such as weak roofs or the inability to withstand the impact of a crash, can lead to serious consequences. Car manufacturers unfortunately choose profit over safety in some instances, and when they do, lives can be shattered. That is why you need a zealous and passionate product liability lawyer to represent your rights and fight for the justice you deserve.

YOU DESERVE JUSTICE IF YOU ARE INJURED BECAUSE OF AN AUTO DEFECT

When you get behind the wheel, you expect your car to work properly and to get you to your destination safely. What you don't expect is your air bags or seat belts to fail if you are ever in an accident. Sadly, however, faulty safety equipment and other defective car parts have led to countless victims being severely injured ― or even killed.

If you or a family member has suffered an injury because of a defective vehicle or auto part, you need to know that you may be entitled to compensation, including damages to cover your medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering. Depending on the circumstances, you may even be entitled to punitive damages, which are designed to punish the company responsible for the defect.

COMMON AUTO DEFECTS

It seems like every other day we hear about another massive car recall. However, whether an auto recall is issued by the car manufacturer itself or ordered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), one fact remains the same: You and your family may be in danger if your car or one of its components is included in the recall.

Common examples of car-related defects that result in recalls include:

  • Air bags that fail to deploy or deploy improperly
  • Seat belt failures
  • Tire defects
  • Faulty brakes
  • Electrical system problems
  • Fuel line issues that can cause serious fires
  • Accelerators that break or stick
  • Unsafe child restraints or defective infant car seats

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE IF I AM INJURED BECAUSE OF A DEFECTIVE CAR PART?

Essentially, car and auto part manufacturers have a duty to ensure that their products are reasonably safe ― or at least warn the public if there are any known dangers. When they fail to meet this duty and you or a loved one is injured as a result, you may be able to file what is known as a product liability claim.

Depending on the circumstances, different parties may be responsible for your injuries. Potentially liable parties include the carmaker, the manufacturer of the defective part, the vehicle distribution company, the car dealership or possibly others.
