No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
Whether you were injured in a single-vehicle accident or multi-car collision, it is important not to overlook the possibility that a defect is to blame for your injuries and losses. Automobile defects are common, and they routinely cause and contribute to dangerous accidents. If a defect played a role in your accident, you may be entitled to compensation from your dealership, the defective vehicle’s manufacturer, or another company. Our lawyers have extensive experience helping clients pursue successful claims for automobile defects, and we can help you win the compensation you deserve.
In order for an automobile to be considered defective, it must conceal an unexpected danger when it rolls off of the showroom floor. If you are injured in an accident because of a faulty brake job, you may have a negligence claim against your maintenance shop, but this would not be legally considered an automobile defect. There are three primary ways in which an automobile can be defective:
Along with defective airbags, some common types of automotive defects include defective tires, defective brakes, defective fuel and electrical systems, defective seatbelts, and other unsafe components.
The types of compensation available for injuries from automotive defects are the same as those available for injuries resulting from other causes. These include past and future medical bills, past and future loss of income, other out-of-pocket expenses, and non-financial losses (such as pain and suffering). In order to maximize your financial recovery, you should see a doctor immediately, and you should discuss your case with an experienced products liability attorney as soon as possible.
