Vehicle accidents often occur because of defective equipment. Defective products are those that were improperly designed or manufactured, or those that failed to display an adequate warning. When those failures lead to accidents, the manufacturer may be liable for any injuries sustained. To learn if you might have a viable case, consult the defective product lawyers at the Barber Law Firm. Our team of expert attorneys and legal staff will help you through the legal process and will ensure you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Defective Products Often Found in Vehicles
Seat Belts – One of the most important safety features in an automobile are the seat belts. They lessen the impact of passengers inside the car and prevent anyone from being ejected from the vehicle. If there is a defect with the seat belt’s design, production, or installation, it can cause serious injuries.
Tires – Quality tires allow drivers to maintain control on different kinds of terrain and in varying weather conditions without risk of collision or rolling over. Defective tires, such as those with tread separation, are susceptible to blowouts and may cause injuries or fatalities.
Air Bags – Should a car wreck occur, drivers rely on air bags to prevent their bodies from hitting the steering wheel or dashboard at a high impact. If deployed correctly, the air bags will cushion the blow and prevent head trauma. Defective air bags may not deploy quickly enough or deploy too quickly and with too much force, causing more harm than good.
