While most personal injury claims are based upon allegations of another party’s negligent or careless actions, auto defect claims are often governed by the legal doctrine of strict liability. Under strict liability, an auto manufacturer may be held liable for any injuries and damages that their products should cause, even if the manufacturer did not act negligently in making that product defective.
Regardless of the safety precautions an auto manufacturer or dealer may claim to take, if you were injured by a vehicle’s dangerous design or defective part, you may be able to file a civil claim in pursuit of compensation for your injuries.
In order to recover compensation, you must be able to fulfill the following requirements:
A part of product liability cases is also knowing what kind of defect was to blame:
Design: Some parts of a vehicle simply cannot be safe from the way they were designed on paper. Design defects such as these point to a dangerous lack of comprehension by auto part designers.
Manufacturing: Automobile product liability in a car accident may be traced back to the manufacturing of a defective part. While it should be safe in theory, some flaw in the creation of the auto part has rendered it unsafe.
Success in an auto product liability case comes down to your attorney’s understanding of what makes an automobile work, and what makes it unsafe. At The Gilbert Law Group®, we have an in-house engineer on-staff, Mr. Andrew Kim, who gives us unparalleled insight into defective auto part cases. Mr. Kim is a Certified Vehicle Fire Investigator and Certified Fire and Explosion Investigator, allowing him to piece together your case, even after the direst of circumstances has occurred.
Additionally, we are able to perform crash simulations and reconstructions with his leadership and knowledge, practically putting us there at the time of the accident to analyze it from all angles and pinpoint liability.
Start by telling us the facts of your accident and the injuries you sustained. The Gilbert Law Group® will carefully investigate your vehicle defect case and closely advise you regarding your legal options.
