Motor vehicle defect claims

Our attorneys have handled a broad range of claims involving defective equipment. We sometimes discover, as we prepare a case, that a car accident injury apparently caused by weather or driver error actually was the result of a defective tire or poor design. Examples of motor vehicle defects that have caused injury and wrongful death include the following:

  • Defective tires, leading to tread separations, blowouts and loss of control
  • Manufacturing defects in seat belts, head restraints and air bags, leading to seat belt failure, seat back failure or spontaneous deployment of an air bag, resulting in neck and back injuries
  • Design defects resulting in poor crashworthiness
  • Instability leading to SUV rollover accidents, causing death, brain injury or spinal cord injury
  • Negligent maintenance leading to brake failure or failure of the steering system
  • Car seat heater burn injuries
