Defective Car & Car Parts

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that in 2014 alone, the auto industry recalled almost 64 million vehicles for safety problems. Whether recalled for exhaust hazards, faulty computer software, or problems with component parts such as airbags, brakes, cruise control, ignition switch, seat belts, etc., the effect on those driving in and around these vehicles can be disastrous.

Cases against car manufacturers and car parts manufacturers and distributors are based on product liability laws, brought against a manufacturer and/or seller or distributor to recover monetary damages arising out of personal injury, death, or property damage caused by that defective product.

Products liability refers to any case brought against a manufacturer or seller of a product for recovery of damages arising out of personal injury, death, or property damage caused by that defective product.  These cases can have a strict tort liability claim, alleging that liability is imposed on a party without a finding of fault because it is inherently unsafe and known to be unsafe.  They may also have a strict products liability claim, alleging that the manufacturer is liable if the product is defective, even if the manufacturer was not negligent in making that product defective.

Damages can be sought for lost wages, lost earning capacity, actual out of pocket losses, pain and suffering in the present and future, mental anguish in the present and future, and payment of past and future medical bills.  Our representation of those who sustain a personal injury is on a “contingency fee” basis, meaning that the lawyers getting paid their attorney’s fees and being reimbursed for their expense in the case is “contingent” upon the lawyers making a recovery in your case.  If the lawyers do not make a recovery in your case, you owe neither attorney’s fees or reimbursement of their expenses.
