Miami Lakes Mechanical Failure

Sometimes, car accidents in Miami Lakes and other Florida communities are caused not by driver error but rather by a defect in the vehicle or mechanical failure of a component in a car. When this happens, it is not the at-fault driver who is liable for the accident but rather the manufacturer of the vehicle and potentially other parties involved.

If you would like to know whether mechanical failure played a role in your accident or if you would like to review your legal options for pursuing compensation in your case, contact the attorneys at Flaxman Law Group today. Our attorneys are available around the clock, so you can always reach a live operator to address your concerns.

Who Is Liable For Your Car Accident Case?

After your car accident, there may be multiple liable parties, including:

  • The manufacturer of the vehicle
  • The dealership or mechanic where the car was serviced or sold
  • The other driver
  • The municipality or location where the accident took place, if road hazards played a role

Pursuing multiple liable parties is important for a couple of reasons. First, it ensures that those who are responsible are held accountable for their negligence and this can help bring about important safety changes. Secondly, pursuing multiple liable parties increases the chances that you will be able to seek fair compensation for your injuries, so that you have to pay for less of your medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses out-of-pocket.

Do You Have a Claim?

You may have a product liability claim in your community if mechanical failure has either led to your car accident or your injuries. In these cases, Florida law allows you to pursue a case against the negligent manufacturer or other liable parties who contributed to your accident and your injuries. You may be able to seek compensation for your lost wages, pain and suffering, incidental expenses, medical bills and more. Keep in mind that your bills may end up costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars, especially if your injuries were severe or are permanent. Seeking fair compensation in these cases is not only a right but it can be an important part of ensuring that you have the financial resources you need to start rebuilding your life.

Mechanical Failures Leading To Car Crashes In Miami Lakes

Although any component in a car can fail, some components are especially common in product liability and mechanical failure cases:

  • Wipers
  • Air bags and other safety devices
  • Headlights and tail lights
  • Steering system
  • Breaks
  • Tires

Unfortunately, in cases where mechanical failure has occurred, manufacturers and other liable parties may try to blame the owner or driver of the vehicle, claiming that the car was not properly maintained. For example, they may claim that tires were not replaced frequently enough or that brakes were not properly maintained, resulting in mechanical failure and an accident. It can be difficult to prove that a flaw in the manufacturing or design process of the car component resulted in mechanical failure and a car accident. You will need a skilled attorney to build your case.
