Vehicle Defect Attorneys in Kansas City
Car Accidents Cause By Defective Parts
Auto accidents are often caused by mechanical failures in the vehicle itself. Sometimes the problem is with the entire car, as in the cases of makes and models that score poorly on crashworthiness tests.
Think how dependent you are on various car modules functioning properly, mile after mile:
- Car seats
- Fuel tanks
Factory recalls, such as the problem General Motors and Toyota have encountered in recent years, address the problem of vehicle defects, but only after people have died because of them. Almost any automotive part that is defective has the potential to cause significant damage or even death. If a tire blows on a sharp curve, cars roll over. Our Kansas City product liability lawyers can help you hold vehicle and part manufacturers liable for defective vehicle accidents.
The Three Dimensions of Automotive Product Liability
The law recognizes three levels of vehicle defect:
- Those that are badly manufactured such as tires whose treads separate under use
- Those that fail because of problems in design, such as certain SUVs that roll over on curves or sudden stops
- Those that fail to adequately communicate how to use the product, or what dangers may exist, such as a manual containing key misinformation
