How to Respond to Automotive Defect Situations

Defective automobiles and auto defects have been in the news quite often recently. Unfortunately, automobile recalls and recalls of automobile parts are not uncommon. Automobile recalls can have a negative impact on car manufacturers and retailers, as well as on consumers and the public.

Manufacturer negligence can result in a number of different kinds of harm and liability for manufacturers and other parties in the supply chain. The reality is that in circumstances of automobile defects, it is important for both manufacturers and victims to know what to do and how to promptly respond. There are a number of different types of automobile defects or automobile component parts that may cause harm and liability.

Product defects that may occur in automobiles can include door latch failures; door frame defects; insufficient frame strength resulting in roof crushing during rollover; seat belt or airbag failures; brake failures; defective accelerators; claims concerning handling and stability; gas tank explosions and fires fed by fuel; and tire defects, among other possible automotive defects.

Product liability claims related to automotive defects can include personal injury, wrongful death or class action claims in specific circumstances related to a group of consumers harmed by an automotive defect. Victims may be able to recover compensation for the damages they have suffered including medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages. A number of parties may be impacted by an automotive defect and each may have different concerns which is why it is important for all parties impacted by an automobile defect to be familiar with the legal options available to them.
