Car accidents injure thousands of people each year, sometimes resulting in long-term medical complications that can significantly affect a person’s quality of life. When motor vehicle accidents occur because of someone’s negligence, those injured may be able to recover for their losses through a Georgia personal injury lawsuit. There are many parties that could potentially be held liable in a car accident case, including other drivers, car manufacturers, bicyclists, or even auto mechanics. In each case it is essential to determine why an accident occurred in order to establish legal liability. If you think you may have a claim as a result of your involvement in a car accident, you should discuss your case with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. The lawyers of the Law Offices of Shane Smith are dedicated personal injury advocates who have the experience necessary to successfully represent car accident victims and get them the compensation they deserve.
Sometimes, car accidents are caused by malfunctioning car equipment. When this occurs, the car manufacturer or the equipment manufacturer may be liable for any injuries caused. In certain cases, a mechanic or a shop may be liable if equipment was improperly installed or was damaged during repair. In these types of accidents, it is extremely important that the evidence is carefully reviewed by someone with experience in determining how and why motor vehicle accidents occur. Some of the types of equipment that may fail and lead to a car crash include:
- Windshield wipers
- Turn signals
In some cases, there may be multiple causes of an accident, and parties that were partially at fault may be held liable to the extent that their negligence contributed to the accident. If you believe that you have been involved in a car accident that was partially due to equipment failure, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible.
