Product Liability Lawsuits for Defective Vehicles Accident Injury and Fatalities

May 26, 2020

USA- When it comes to automobiles, a defective car part can be frightening and potentially deadly.  People rely on cars to safely transport them to and from many destinations. A car, motorcycle, or truck that was not properly manufactured can lead to severe life-altering injuries or death.*

Cars and other vehicles have many working parts that could create serious risks to the driver or passengers. Problems with the automobiles frame, brakes, engine, electrical system, fuel system, steering system, or any other part of the vehicle all could result in serious auto accidents with devastating consequences.

In the event of a defective motor vehicle case, the law views the claim under the strict liability legal standard. This means that the injured party need not show that the maker of the product was careless when they created the defective vehicle. 

While careless actions are not a requirement, there are several factors that must be met in order for a manufacturer to be liable for injuries caused by their product. These factors generally include that the automobile was unreasonably dangerous, or that a part of the vehicle was unreasonably dangerous. This defect could have been triggered by a design flaw, a manufacturing glitch, or any other problem that occurred while the car was being created. The second factor is that the defect must have led to the injury or death while the victim or victims were using the automobile in an intended way. 

The final requirement is that the vehicle was not substantially altered after it left the seller or manufacturer. If all these factors are met, then the victim or that person’s next of kin may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer.  An experienced attorney can advise you about your potential case in more details during an initial consultation.
