Accidents Caused by Vehicle Design Defects

Serving Clients in Contra Costa County & the Bay Area

Car manufacturers are under pressure to keep gas mileage high, prices low, and the features top-of-the-line. With such a demand to deliver all the right components while still making a profit, manufacturers may often cut corners, eliminating or reducing safety features that add weight to the car or expense to the price sticker. Such attention to the bottom line sometimes means that vehicles are sometimes released for sale with inherent defects, making them less safe for drivers and passengers.

Examples of Vehicle Design Defects

Even the smallest defective auto part can lead to devastating accidents. From internal components to external defects, our firm can represent clients injured due to a comprehensive range of vehicle issues.

For example, we can handle auto design defect matters involving:

  • Defective brakes
  • Defective door latch
  • Fuel tank defects
  • Auto seat relining mechanism failure
  • Defective seat belt design
  • Defective air bag design
  • Rollovers caused by defective design
  • Defective tires
  • Transmission defects

When vehicles are released for sale despite having insufficient crashworthiness, it can be dangerous for the driver, passengers, and other individuals on the road. Even though some car companies and manufacturers use recalls to try to repair the defects, the damage is often done at that point.
