Accidents Caused by Manufacturing Defects
Many car collisions in Miami are caused by driver error. However, a significant number are also caused by manufacturing defects. Each year, cars are recalled because a component has been incorrectly installed, designed, or manufactured. Unfortunately, before some of these recalls take place motorists are seriously injured or even killed by the defective items. Defective parts on cars can include tires, brake systems, seatbelt systems, air bags, and just about every component of a car. The frustrating thing about collisions caused by manufacturing defect is that often there's no way for a motorist to prevent these types of collisions. A motorist may drive very safely and may be conscientious about being safe on the road, but a manufacturing defect can cause their car to fail or behave unexpectedly, leading to a crash. In these cases, the car manufacturer can be held liable for injuries, fatalities, property damage, and other damages caused by the accident. Victims in these cases have the option of filing a products liability claim in Miami to seek damages.

The Challenges of Filing a Claim After a Car Accident
One of the challenges of car accident cases involving manufacturing defects is that car manufacturers are often powerful defendants with legal teams as well as teams of private investigators. In many cases, it takes extensive research and investigations to prove that a defect has caused an accident. Manufacturers may blame driver error or distraction rather than their own defective products. In some cases, these types of products liability claims become class-action lawsuits, involving multiple defendants and multiple plaintiffs. Victims often need to work with qualified and experienced personal injury attorneys to safeguard their rights and to get the fairest compensation possible.
Determining Fault in a Car Accident
In many cases, victims who have sustained head injuries, burns, soft tissue injuries, fractures, and other serious injuries in a car accident in Miami may not even know that a defective car system caused their accident. Often, only exhaustive investigation will determine the true factors leading to an accident. In most cases, though, thorough investigation is important. It gives survivors the answers they need for peace of mind and allows survivors to seek justice from multiple liable parties. In cases where there are multiple liable parties, injured victims may be better able to recover fair compensation for their suffering and their injuries.
