Defective Vehicle Manufacture can Cause Serious Accidents

Of the millions of motor vehicle accidents that occur each year, a minority of them occur to defects with vehicles or vehicle equipment. People who are injured in these types of accidents may be able to bring a legal action against the vehicle manufacture to recover for any injuries or other losses they sustain. The types of damages recoverable in lawsuits arising from defective vehicle manufacture include compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, and loss of future earnings, among others. The best way to determine whether you have a claim against a vehicle manufacturer after a car accident is to consult with one of the experienced Coweta County personal injury attorneys of the Law Offices of Shane Smith as soon as possible.


Common Examples of Vehicle Defects

Some cases of vehicle defects or equipment malfunctions may be clear. For example, if brakes completely fail or a steering column locks up it will likely be fairly simple to establish that an accident was due to defective manufacture or design. In other cases, evidence of the malfunction may require significant investigation to uncover. Some of the more common ways that vehicle defects or malfunctions can lead to accidents include:

  • Brake failure
  • Tire blowouts
  • Problems with steering
  • Faulty windshield wipers
  • Malfunctioning vehicle lights
  • Sticking accelerator pedals
  • Problems with cruise control
  • ABS failure
  • Speedometer malfunctions
  • Transmission failures


After an accident, an experienced attorney will be able to review the facts of your case and determine whether any evidence of defective manufacture or design exist. If they do, your attorney will also be able to help you bring a claim against the vehicle manufacturer in order to recover for you injuries.
