Hialeah Mechanical Failure

When some components in your car don’t work, it is an annoyance. For example, when your radio doesn't play correctly or when you can't hook up your mobile device to your dashboard, it can be frustrating. However, when critical systems such as wipers, headlights, brakes, tires, or the engine fail to work correctly, it's a much more serious matter. When mechanical failure affects the safety of your car, you could find yourself involved in a serious car accident as a result or suffering serious injuries.

Each year, car accidents in Hialeah occur due to mechanical failure or product defects in cars. In many cases, passengers and drivers suffer serious injuries and financial distress as a result of these crashes. If you have suffered a serious car accident and you would like to know whether there are liable parties to pursue as well as other legal options available for you, you will want to speak with a personal injury attorney. The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have worked with personal injury plaintiffs and traffic accident survivors for decades. They can speak about your situation in a free, confidential case evaluation.

Why Does Mechanical Failure Occurred In Cars?

Car product defects in Hialeah and other communities occur for a number of reasons:

  • Cars today are more complex, and more systems and individual components can mean that there are more chances for something to go wrong
  • Some cars are affected by manufacturing defects
  • Some components of a car may become worn down due to misuse or due to incorrect maintenance
  • In some cases, maintenance and work done on the car in a repair shop may have been incorrectly completed
  • Some cars are affected by design flaws

In many cases, it can be difficult to determine exactly what has happened to cause your accident unless you work with a private investigator, expert witnesses, engineers, accident reconstruction experts, or other professionals. If you suspect that your car accident and subsequent injuries were caused by negligence or recklessness, you will want to contact a personal injury attorney in Hialeah or your community in order to get the facts and in order to get more information about your situation.

But Aren't I Covered?

Many people assume that if mechanical failure has caused their accident, they don't have to worry because they are covered by car insurance. Unfortunately, car insurance does not always cover the full cost of your injuries, especially if your injuries are severe.

In most cases, car insurance companies resolve claims quickly – in some cases before you even know the full extent of your injuries. Car insurance companies also want to make maximum profit, and that usually means trying to resolve claims as inexpensively as possible. When you file a claim, you will usually be compensated for immediate medical costs and immediate income loss. If you face long-term or permanent medical costs to due to a severe injury or if you find out later that your injuries are more severe than doctors initially estimated and you need more money for your medical bills, you may find that you are unable to secure more compensation or insurance money from your claim.
