While the vast majority of motor vehicle accidents are the result of driver error, a significant number are caused by defective vehicle manufacture. These types of accidents can range from minor to extremely severe, and have the potential to result in serious injuries. Fortunately, victims of accidents caused by defective vehicle manufacture may be able to recover for their losses by bringing a Georgia personal injury claim. Because of the often legally complicated issues that arise in defective vehicle manufacture cases, it is important for victims to retain the services of an experienced Brooks car accident attorney. Victims should be aware that there is a limited amount of time in which you can file a Georgia personal injury claim, so any delay has the potential to jeopardize your ability to recover.

 

Examples of Defective Manufacture

A modern vehicle literally has thousands of parts that have the potential to fail. While not all of these are critical to the safe operation of a car or truck, some can make a vehicle extremely difficult or even impossible to control. Some of the more common kinds of issues that may occur due to manufacturing defects include:

  • Brake failure
  • Tire blowouts
  • Unintended acceleration
  • Steering problems
  • Cruise control issues
  • Poor visibility due to faulty wipers
  • ABS failure
  • Seat belt failure
  • Unintended airbag deployment
  • Malfunctioning speedometers

 

After a car accident, it is important for victims to have the circumstances of their accident reviewed by an experienced attorney. Evidence of defective manufacture is not always readily apparent, and a skilled attorney can often recognize such evidence even if other may miss it.
