Car Door Latch Failure

Product Liability Attorneys Represented People Injured by Defective Car Locks and Latches

Sometimes it is hard to tell if an auto defect is the cause of personal injury or wrongful death in a car accident. It may seem that the door just swung open when it should have stayed shut. In certain cases, it takes a complete investigation to determine whether a car door latch failure led to your injuries.

If someone you care about has been involved in an auto wreck and the car door latch failed to operate properly or the door swung open unexpectedly, talk to the attorneys at Tyler & Peery. Our San Antonio, Texas, law firm partners with experts on auto defects. We can detect car door latch failures and we hold automobile manufacturers and distributors accountable for the harm caused.

There are several reasons latch failures may occur:

  • Poor design
  • Mechanical problems
  • Incorrect installation

There are many different types of auto defects in addition to defective door latches. Electronic stability control, roof crush in rollover accidents, seat belts and seat back failures are just a few examples. At the Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, we successfully handle a broad range of auto defect cases.

How Will My Personal Injury Affect Me in the Future?

People who are injured when they are relatively young often fail to realize just how much their personal injury will affect them in the future. It is sad to say, but even relatively minor injuries — like broken bones — can continue to cause problems years or even decades after the accident.

People with broken bones often develop arthritis in that spot later in life. Injuries to joints can require knee replacements. But the replaced knees wear out. Over a lifetime, it may be necessary to undergo additional knee surgeries. Serious personal injuries can even lead to shorter life expectancies.

It is a sad truth, but it is also a reason to take your personal injury claim seriously. Work with the best attorneys you can find — experienced attorneys like the trial lawyers at Tyler & Peery. We are Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and are AV® Peer Review Rated under Martindale-Hubbell's peer review rating system.*
