Each year over 2 million people are injured in car accidents. Automobile defects often cause many of those accidents or make the injuries much worse than they should have been. Manufacturers who sell defective vehicles should be held responsible for the physical injuries and monetary damages they cause. For over 40 years, Jacoby and Meyers has provided legal representation to auto accident victims, fighting for – and winning – the compensation they are entitled to.
Manufacturing and Design Defect Lawsuits
Automobile manufacturers have a duty to design and manufacture a safe vehicle. As they research and test their new products, they are made aware of safety concerns in the design, as well as the reliability and durability of their manufacturing materials. Unfortunately, a company’s bottom line sometimes takes priority over the safety of the consumer, resulting in serious accidents and devastating injuries, such as traumatic brain, spinal cord, amputation and burns.
Defective automobile lawsuits are often based on:
- A car’s roof not withstanding a rollover
- A rear end collision causing an explosion
- Air bags not deploying or deploying with dangerous materials exploding inside them
- A seat belt failing to remain latched
- A tire blowing unexpectedly
- Door latch failures
- A side not withstanding impact
- A leaking fuel system
- Defective breaks
