New York Car Defect / Malfunction Lawyers
Motorists should be able to reasonably expect their vehicles to work properly, with mechanical failures only appearing after significant wear and tear. However, if parts fail unexpectedly, motorists may be significantly endangered as a result. These malfunctions can lead to the loss of control for a driver, potentially causing an accident. In such an accident, a driver may sustain severe injuries, as they may not be able to safely slow down or use safety devices before a collision.
If you or someone you love has sustained an injury in a car accident that was caused by an automotive manufacturer’s defective part, the negligent manufacturer should bear the financial burden of the accident, rather than you or your loved one. To discuss taking this legal action, contact a New York car defect attorney of Hach & Rose, LLP, today by calling (212) 779-0057.
Dangerous Automotive Defects
Automotive manufacturers have a responsibility to consumers to adequately test their parts and to produce safe, reliable parts. If a manufacturer shirks this responsibility by producing a sub-par part that causes an accident, this is likely sufficient for a person to take legal action. In particular, the following defects may be particularly dangerous:
- Tire and wheel defects
- Brake defects
- Steering defects
- Airbag defects
- Seat belt defects
- Electrical defects
These malfunctions can directly lead to or strongly contribute to an innocent person’s injury, which may leave them in need of medical care and lost income due to missing work during recovery. This can place a significant financial burden on an injured individual’s household. Fortunately, these financial burdens may be the responsibility of the automotive producer or manufacturer who made the defective part.
If you’ve been injured because of a defective or malfunctioning part in your motor vehicle, you may be entitled to seek compensation and justice for your undue suffering.
