Auto Accidents Occur For Multiple Reasons
Other drivers, driver distraction, hazardous roadways, or bad weather don't always cause automobile accidents. Often, the responsibility falls to a defective part in or on the automobile itself. A defective part can cause a crash or make the injuries from an accident far worse than without. When automobile parts, especially safety equipment, don't work properly, the results can be devastating.
Contrary to public opinion, tires are not the only auto part involved in recalls over the past two decades. Other dangerous automotive defects that have led to major recalls or serious accidents include:
- Airbags that deploy at the wrong times, or cause serious injuries when deployed;
- Defects in fuel tanks, fuel lines or their placement;
- Defective seatbelts;
- Defective child car seats;
- Defects Door Locks and Latches
- Faulty Brakes
- Seats that Fall Back in Accidents, Hitting Passengers Behind
- Rollover Prone SUVs;
When automobile parts fail, the resulting accidents can be fatal or cause catastrophic injuries to multiple parties, including broken bones, brain damage, burns, amputations and paralysis.
Medical costs for the treatment of serious injuries can add up very quickly, and if a wage earner is disabled, the accident can profoundly affect a victim and their family's financial stability.
If the injury was caused by an auto company's carelessness, unreasonable cost-saving decisions, or product defectiveness, victims have the right to hold that company legally accountable and liable for their injuries and financial losses associated with the accident.
