Homestead Mechanical Failure
Manufacturers of cars and car parts have an obligation to produce safe products that keep drivers safe. When manufacturers are negligent and produce unsafe cars, serious injuries can be the result. Defective seatbelts, for example, can lead to fatalities and serious head injuries in a car accident. If air bags fail to inflate correctly, passengers in a car accident can suffer asphyxiation, facial injuries, spinal cord injuries, or brain trauma.
If you have been injured in a car accident in Homestead and think that mechanical failure may have played either a part in the accident itself or in your injuries, contact Flaxman Law Group to find out whether you have a legal claim. Depending on your situation, you may have a product liability claim in Homestead or another type of personal injury claim that can help you seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses.What Types of Mechanical Failure is Common in Cars?
Mechanical failure in cars can include many things, such as:
- Tire defects
- Car seat defects
- Faulty airbags
- Seatbelt issues that lead to injuries
- Poorly designed brakes
- Defectively manufactured components that cause the car to overheat or not respond correctly
Just about every part of your car can be affected by faulty design, poor manufacturing, or incorrect installation.Do You Have a Product Liability Case After Your Car Accident?
You may have a product liability lawsuit if:
A component of your car was responsible for the accident
- A component of your car was poorly designed and this led to the accident or your injuries
- A component of your car was poorly or incorrectly manufactured, leading to the accident or your injuries
- The manufacturer knew of the design flaw or car flaw and did not respond adequately
- The manufacturer of the car parts or car should have known about the design flaw but failed to act
Whether your car or car part has been recalled or whether you know of no other person who has been injured in the same manner, it is important to get answers. If there is a defective car part that has caused your injuries, you may not only have a lawsuit but your actions in pursuing a legal claim could cause a recall notice to be issued, which can help prevent others from being similarly injured.
Pursuing a legal case can also hold the manufacturer accountable and can ensure that they make safety changes so that others are not injured. It can also ensure that you pursue compensation so that you have money for medical bills, transportation, car repair costs, lost wages, and other expenses and bills.
