Chicago Defective Vehicles Attorney
When automakers choose vehicle designs, materials and parts, they have access to extensive research into vehicle safety. Unfortunately, the large number of car recalls of Niles defective vehicles every year shows that automakers sometimes fail in their duty to produce safe and functional vehicles. The existence of a lemon car law, as any defective vehicles attorney will tell you, also reveals that cars are not always roadworthy when they reach the market.
Niles Product Liability Lawyer
The manufacturer of any product that is made available to consumers has an obligation to provide products that are not dangerous when used correctly. This is as true for unsafe cars as it is for unsafe pharmaceuticals, defective medical devices and defective toys and children’s products. Automakers have a responsibility to ensure the vehicles they produce are safe to operate. Vehicle defects may occur because automakers fail to adequately test vehicles or fully mitigate established safety risks.
A product liability lawyer would conduct a thorough investigation of an accident to determine whether the vehicles involved had any defects that may have contributed to it. The following failures are all examples of common and dangerous car defects:
- Airbag, occupant restraint or brake system failures
- Roof collapses during rollovers or other structural failings
- Fuel system malfunctions or fires
- Faulty door latches that cause occupant ejection
- Tire tread separation and blowouts
Lemon cars can directly cause accidents, or they can worsen the outcomes of accidents that occur due to other factors. Sadly, the role defective vehicles play in many accidents may go undetected.
