San Antonio Defective Products Lawyers
A new car recall has almost become a daily occurrence. It seems like a warning hits the news just about every day for a car with a malfunctioning airbag or a fuel line that has the tendency to catch fire. In 2014, a record 50.99 million vehicles were officially recalled. That number was preceded by an alarming new record of 51.26 million vehicles in 2015. Auto manufacturers are producing increasingly unsafe cars that are putting consumers in danger.
Vehicle Defect Categories
There are a number of different things that can go wrong with complex equipment like a motor vehicle. Vehicle defects are classified into three categories:
- Vehicle Design Defects – such as vehicle stability, crashworthiness, fuel tank placement, occupant restraint systems (seat belts, air bags) and other design elements that could cause or contribute to serious injuries and accidents
- Vehicle Manufacturing Defects – such as defective tires, defective door handle springs and locks and latches, and defective cruise control devices (which can cause vehicle fires – even long after the vehicle has been parked)
- Vehicle Marketing Defects – such as inadequate warnings for SUV rollovers, misrepresentation in advertising regarding the wear and tear on certain tires, and other insufficient warnings, such as the dangers of airbags
Injury Resulting From A Vehicle Defect
Injuries that occur as a result of a vehicle defect can be devastating. You may be left temporarily or worse, permanently unable to work. Meanwhile medical bills and everyday expenses continue to pile up. You may also experience overwhelming amounts of pain and mental anguish. If you are injured by a defective automotive product, you deserve compensation for your injuries from those who have negligently caused them.
