San Antonio Automotive Defects Lawyer

Are You Looking for An
San Antonio Automotive Defects Lawyer?

Unfortunately, an automotive or vehicle defect is an all too common occurrence. Sometimes, the automobile defect can lead to a liability of the manufacturer of the vehicle. There are even times when the actual design of the auto may lead to or increase a driver’s or passenger’s injuries.

Throughout the United States, hundreds of thousands of American citizens are involved in a car accident due to an automotive defect. Not only can this leave a car in complete disrepair, but it may cause serious injuries including whiplash, scarring, disfigurement, paralysis, and even death.

Oftentimes, it can be quite difficult to determine whether an automotive defect contributed to an accident or injury. Therefore, it is important to hire a Vehicle Defect Attorney with whom you can discuss your case.

What To Look For

Manufacturer Negligence

When an accident occurs because of an automotive defect, there is not much that can be done to prevent the situation. Manufacturers are often to blame for not producing a crashworthy vehicle that stands up to the highest safety standards required in the United States. Unfortunately, this live saving technology has not yet been implemented in all vehicles, leading to a high rate of injury and mortality in the event of an accident due to a car defect.

The Right To Compensation

However, if you have been involved in the aforementioned accident due to a manufacturer’s negligence in the build of a defective vehicle, you may have the right to receive compensation. Automobile manufacturers are responsible to their clients, and purchasers of their vehicles, to provide a safe design and thorough manufacturing process. Some cars possess features that minimizes safety level. Over time, research has also brought forth new materials that are more durable and resistant to causing injuries in the event of a crash. However, many car manufacturing companies place quantity and profit above quality and safety. When this occurs, serious injuries and catastrophic auto accidents are likely to transpire.

Common Automobile Defects Leading To Injuries

The range of injuries can vary from airbag defects to defective brakes. Some of the most common automotive defects include:

  • Defective Tires
  • Defective Brakes
  • Seatbelt Failures
  • Inadequate Side Impact Protection
  • Airbag Failure
  • Occupant Restraint Failure
  • Tire Blowouts
  • Structural Failures
  • Poor Crash Worthiness
