How Can an Auto Defect Harm You?

Car defects can cause significant harm to people in several ways:

  • Accidents: Defects can directly lead to accidents. For example, brake failures can prevent a driver from stopping in time to avoid a collision.

  • Injury Amplification: Some defects may not cause accidents but can amplify the injuries sustained in one. For example, if airbags are defective and fail to deploy during a crash, occupants may suffer more severe injuries than they would have if the airbags had functioned correctly.

  • Fire and Explosion Risks: Certain defects, such as those in a car's fuel system, can increase the risk of fires or explosions, leading to burns and other serious injuries.

  • Loss of Control: Defects like tire blowouts or suspension failures can cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle, potentially resulting in a crash.

  • Rollover Accidents: Design defects can make a vehicle prone to rollovers, which can result in severe injuries or fatalities.

Common Auto Defects

Identifying the Culprits

Modern vehicles are equipped with advanced technology, but unfortunately, defects can still occur. Car defects can range from minor inconveniences to major issues that can lead to serious injuries or death. The most common auto defects we encounter include:

  • Faulty Airbags: Airbags are designed to save lives, but defects can lead to serious injuries if they fail to deploy or explode.
  • Seat Belts: Defective seat belts may not provide the necessary protection during an accident.
  • Brake Failures: Malfunctions in the braking system can result in accidents and severe injuries.
  • Tire Blowouts: Defective tires can lead to loss of control and accidents.
  • Steering/Suspension: Defects in these systems can cause loss of vehicle control.
  • Faulty Ignition Switches: Issues with the ignition can cause sudden engine shut-offs, leading to accidents.
  • Fuel System Defects: Leaks or malfunctions can result in fires and catastrophic injuries.

Liability in Auto Defect Cases

Pinpointing Responsibility

Determining liability in auto defect cases can be complex, involving various parties:

  • Manufacturers: Companies responsible for designing and producing the defective parts may be held liable.
  • Distributors and Retailers: Those involved in the supply chain may share responsibility.
  • Dealerships: If the defect was known and not disclosed during the sale, dealerships may be held accountable.

It's important to note that in product liability law, a plaintiff doesn't need to prove negligence. They only need to prove that the product was defective and that the defect caused their injury.
