If you or someone you love was injured or killed in an automobile accident due to the inherent defects within an automobile’s design or the failure of a part, such as a tire, seat belt, or fuel tank, you might have an automotive products liability case for which you can pursue compensation.
Auto product liability cases have a tendency to be complicated, given the different variables involved. They typically involve one or more of the following elements:
It is possible for your case to involve multiple defendants since there are multiple participants involved in the chain of distribution. The chain of distribution includes:
If the defective vehicle did not belong to you, you might still have a valid product liability claim. If you borrowed someone’s defective car, for example, or were injured by a defective car being driven by someone else, you could file a lawsuit against any number of the defendants listed above. If you were driving a defective car and the accident also involved a negligent driver, that might add another facet to your case and you might be able to file a negligent driving claim against the other driver.
Car accidents are not always the result of negligent drivers. Many often involve faulty car parts, or defective designs, which can lead to serious life-altering injuries, or death. If you or someone you love was involved in a car accident due to a defective design or a defective car part, you have a right to pursue legal compensation against all at-fault parties, no matter how large the manufacturing company is.
