When can Car Manufacturers be held Liable for Car Accidents?

Car accidents injure thousands of people each year, sometimes seriously. People who are hurt in car accidents may require expensive and long term medical attention, and may develop significant disabilities. As a result, victims of car accident may be entitled to receive significant compensation through a car accident lawsuit. Because car accidents may bring up complicated legal issues of causation and liability, it is important that anyone injured in a car accident consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. The attorneys of the Law Offices of Shane Smith and associates are experienced Fayette County PI lawyers who are dedicated to getting our clients the compensation that they deserve.

There are many reasons a car accident may occur, ranging from driver error to poor weather conditions. When car accidents occur due to manufacturing defects, the manufacturer of the vehicle may be held legally liable for any injuries that may occur. Some common ways in which manufacturing defects lead to car accidents include:

  • Brake failure
  • Steering issues
  • Gas tank explosions
  • Faulty wipers
  • Axle failure
  • Tire blowout
  • Electrical failure

These are just a few examples of issues that may lead to manufacturer liability in the event of a car accident. It is extremely important for anyone who has been involved in a car accident to consult with an experienced Fayette County car accident lawyer in order to determine whether they have a claim.
