Car Defects & Recalls Lawyer

Dangers of an Auto Part Defect

The automobile has been constantly evolving since its first introduction to society. Although technological advances have improved airbags, seatbelts, and breaking technology, the automotive machine is not foolproof. Despite rigorous and exhaustive testing, occasionally cars and trucks are mass produced and released on the market with inherent safety hazards and serious construction or design defects which subsequently lead to a safety recall. If you purchased a car that has serious defects, or that has been recalled by the manufacturer, a personal injury attorney from the Doan Law Firm, P.C. can help you evaluate your options for legal recourse.

Common Defects in Automobiles

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration is the organization that closely keeps tabs on safety recalls. Common automotive defects that lead to safety recalls include:

  • Air bag deployment defects
  • Faulty or defective tires
  • Failure to meet emissions standards
  • Steering defects that cause loss of control of the vehicle
  • Accelerator mechanisms that fail to function properly or freeze
  • Break defects that cause the mechanism to freeze up
  • Defects in the car's onboard electronic system
  • Fuel leaks that could potentially cause the car to set on fire
  • Wiring flaws that are a fire hazard

One major manufacturer was recently in the headlines for producing numerous models with defects that caused the accelerator to become stuck. Unfortunately, the accelerator defect led to a number of fatal motor vehicle accidents. Another major auto manufacturer had to recall thousands of one of their popular SUV models due to defective tires placed on the vehicles. These defective tires were subsequently responsible for causing hundreds of accidents and deaths.

Obtaining Legal Representation

Auto manufacturers have a responsibility to produce safe motor vehicles for consumer use and when they fall short, they should be held financially liable. If you have recently purchased a car or truck that has been recalled, or one with major defects that threaten your safety and your wallet, you may be entitled to one or more legal remedies including a personal injury settlement, and economic damages to recoup the loss of your car's resale value. Since the laws governing product liability vary from state to state, it's a wise idea to enlist the services of a highly experienced attorney who is familiar with these types of cases.

An attorney can closely review the details of your case to help you determine your options for recovery, as well as your legal rights. It is always in your best interests to make sure the vehicle you are driving is in safe working condition, and that you don't suffer any losses as a result of a manufacturer defect or recall. The legal team at the firm is deeply committed to helping those individuals who have been wronged by an automotive manufacturer or suffered undue injuries from a dangerous and defective automobile. You are urged to contact the firm immediately to schedule your initial consultation.
