Vehicle Defects leading to Product Liability Claims
Defective airbags, faulty ignition switches, dangerous gas pedals. These stories have become all-too-common these days. Defects in the design or manufacturing process of a vehicle or vehicle parts can lead to catastrophic, sometimes fatal, auto accidents. If you were seriously harmed by such an accident, our product liability lawyers in South Carolina will be your aggressive advocates.
Some of the defects that we see in product liability cases involve the:
- Vehicle design
- Steering system
- Brake system
- Electrical system
- Volkswagen Emissions Software
In some cases, vehicles have been rushed to the market without proper testing. Automakers can also cover up the evidence of defects, placing profit ahead of their customers’ safety.
Your Defective Vehicle Case
If we determine you have a case, our injury firm will fight to pursue compensation for the ways in which the defective vehicle accident has influenced your life, such as:
- Severe physical injuries, which may have resulted in disability, pain, or other consequences.
- Lost wages and income from being unable to work.
- Expensive medical costs, which may include both your emergency care and any ongoing medical requirements.
There are several different parties who may be held responsible in a product liability case. From the point of design to the point that a customer is behind the wheel, there are many steps in a vehicle reaching the market. The defect may have arisen in the design process or the manufacturing process. We will determine who is responsible for the defect, and we can advise you of all of your options for moving forward with a lawsuit.
