Suing a Manufacturer for Defective Car Parts

In car accidents the natural inclination is to sue the driver and owner of the other vehicle. But sometimes the cause of the accident is a product defect. The defect can be in another car or it can be in your automobile. Car defects can cause serious injury and even death. Where there is a product defect then there are other defendants who can be sued:

  • The manufacturer of the product part
  • The manufacturer of the car
  • The seller of the car
  • Anyone who worked on the defect

Some of the more common car defects that cause injuries are faulty:

  • Air Brakes
  • Air Bags
  • Brakes
  • Fuel Tanks
  • Suspensions
  • Steering Wheels
  • Tires

In product defect cases it’s important to use a skilled car accident lawyer. The lawyer can use the right experts to prove the defect caused the injuries and can make sure the right defendants are sued. Products in cars have to meet minimum standards.
