Causes of a car accident

Oftentimes, an automobile accident is caused by a driver that was ignoring traffic laws by speeding or driving recklessly. They can also be caused when a driver is under the influence or alcohol or drugs. However, sometimes a car accident occurs because of a defective vehicle. If this is the case, our attorneys will need to take a different approach to your case. Rather than seeking financial compensation from the guilty driver, we will go after the negligent manufacturer of the defective vehicle. We will put in the necessary research to determine if the defect occurred because of the manufacturer, designer, inspector, or all of the above. We will then seek damages from all involved parties to help you pay for your damages and injuries.

Defective parts on a vehicle can cause horrible car accidents as the driver may no longer have control over the car. In the past, there have been defective vehicle cases because of the following:

  • Defective tires
  • Safety systems within the vehicle that fail
  • Defective seat belts
  • Doors that won't unlock
  • Defective floor mats that cause pedals to stick
  • Malfunctioning computer systems within the vehicle
