What Type Of Auto Defect Injured You?

  • Structural integrity: Every vehicle sold in the United States must meet federal crashworthiness guidelines, which define the safety standards for your automobile.
  • Airbag defects: Common airbag problems include failure to deploy or an airbag that spontaneously deploys.
  • Rollovers: A vehicle's high center of gravity and narrow wheelbase cause rollovers. Rollovers are more common in SUVs and vans.
  • Roof crush: Automakers should design roofs that protect against roof collapse and separation.
  • Seat belt defects: Seat belt spooling, lap belts, automatic belts, and latches are common types of seat belt issues.
  • Door failure/latch failure: A defective door may open during a rollover or other accident, tossing the occupant out of the car.
  • Fuel system fire/explosions: Faulty gas tank design and placement can cause a vehicle fire following an accident.
  • Occupant ejection: An improperly designed vehicle can eject an occupant out of the car during an accident.
  • Seat failure: A seat belt and child safety seat will prove useless if a seat back fails during an accident.
  • Truck underride accidents: These accidents occur when a car crashes underneath the trailer of a semi. We represent people in claims against truck drivers and trucking companies.
