Millions of cars are recalled every year because of manufacturing defects or defective parts that can result in a collision. Car manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure that vehicles are safe for people to operate them. If a car defect is the cause of an accident, the car manufacturer can be held liable for their negligence. Our Houston car accident attorneys explain what you can do if a defective part caused your car accident.
If your car accident was caused because of a defect with the vehicle, you can hold the manufacturer liable for accident-related damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. For example, if your collision was caused because of a faulty brake (not having to do with poor maintenance on your part), you can hold the manufacturer liable for your accident.
A car accident lawyer can help you obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries. They can analyze the remaining components of the part and vehicle damage and look for product recalls or other cases involving the same manufacturer. They can also try to recreate the accident to determine how the defective product caused the accidents that lead to your injuries.
If you don’t believe that your car accident was caused by a defective part but rather by a repair mistake, the independent repair shop or car dealership can also be held liable. Even a simple repair mistake, such as not adding automatic steering fluid, can cause a serious collision. An experienced attorney can also assist you to hold the repair company accountable for the injuries you suffered due to their negligence.
