When Can I Sue the Vehicle Manufacturer in an Automobile Accident?

Automobiles are an important element of our daily lives in this country. Most people use them daily, and many people spend a significant amount of time in them during the day. They have become an important tool in our daily life, and a vast majority of people could not live without them. However, because of their size, speed, complexity, and the amount of time we use them, they pose a significant risk to our health and wellbeing. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, automobile accidents are the leading non-medical cause of death in America. And though many accidents are caused by other factors such as negligence of drivers or problems with the roadways, there are accidents that can be attributed to negligence on the part of the vehicle manufacturer. However, determining when a manufacturer is liable for injuries sustained in an automobile accident can be a complex process. The best way to determine if you are entitled to recovery against a vehicle manufacturer for injuries sustained in an automobile accident is to schedule a consultation with the experienced auto accident attorneys from Shane Smith Law as soon as possible.

What are some Common Defective Automobile Parts?

Automobile parts that have been implicated in recent recalls include:

  • Braking systems
  • seat belts
  • Poor design leading to rollovers
  • Axles
  • Airbags
  • Car seats
  • Door locks and latches

If your injury was caused by a vehicle company’s unreasonable carelessness or poor decisions while manufacturing their vehicle, they deserve to be held legally liable.
