Defective Auto Parts Accidents

Defective Auto Parts

Auto Accidents & Victims’ Rights

Auto accidents can be overwhelming experiences, no matter what the underlying cause may be. While most car accidents are caused by the negligence of drivers, there are situations where accidents result from the negligence of other individuals or entities - including auto part manufacturers. In 1966, the NHTSA enacted The Nation Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act which not only issued vehicle safety standards, but required manufacturers to recall vehicles that have auto part defects or do not meet Federal standards.

Accidents involving defective auto parts can entail many unique complexities. Many people involved in these types of accidents are left flustered and confused, not understanding who they should turn to. However, it is important to seek help from a qualified legal professional as soon as possible to ensure you are taken care of through the subsequent process.

If you have suffered harm due to defective auto parts, contact our firm today. You don’t pay a thing unless we win!

Common Auto Defect Cases

With car accidents such as these, the outcomes are based on a case-by-case basis. However, in many cases, auto part defects are considered preventable.

Below is a list of some ways that mechanical failure accidents are caused:

  • Accelerator controls that break or stick
  • Faulty tires or wheels that crack or break
  • Wiring systems malfunctions that cause fires
  • Defective seatbelts
  • Defective airbags that don’t deploy

Manufacturers are required by law to ensure their products are safe for public use. When these products are defectively designed, manufactured, or marketed, they place innocent people at risk. Fortunately, victims harmed as a result of negligent product manufacturers have the right to pursue compensation for their injuries.

It is important that a person seeks the help of an experienced attorney to make sure they are getting the representation they deserve so that they do not suffer the consequences of an accident he/she did not cause. Unfortunately, auto part defect accidents account for almost 13% of all auto accidents.

If you have been injured due to an accident caused by mechanical failure or defective auto parts, contact the Galveston car accident attorneys at The Daspit Law Firm today. We will review your case detail by detail to make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

  • What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm!

    “What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm! While on vacation a few months ago I had the misfortune of being hit from behind while driving back from Austin. I had several back and neck problems caused by the accident. After the insurance company of the driver did not cover my expenses only weeks after the accident I then called Daspit Law Firm. Best decision I ever made! They not only got all of my medical visits taken care of, but I also received extra for my time lost from my job! I will definitely recommend the team at the Daspit Law Firm.”
