Defective Auto Product Claims in Houston, Texas
Poor Corporate Construction
Auto accidents don’t only happen because of reckless drivers. Large automotive corporations can sometimes cut corners in an attempt to save money. As a result, every year thousands of people are injured due to improper manufacturing techniques and practices. If you’ve been a victim of faulty vehicle construction, we have the legal team that will work to earn you the restitution you are owed.
Not Your Fault
Auto product liability is a result of one of two factors: an improperly constructed or dangerously designed product. Even if the poorly manufactured item is only a single part of a vehicle, it is still liable for damages. This applies to any component that prevents the automobile from safely functioning.
What to Watch For
There are many malfunctions that can be responsible for compromising the safety of your vehicle. We have provided a list of the most common automotive faults.
Seat Belt Defects
A seat belt that fails to keep you within your seat during a collision is not properly made. Latches becoming unbuckled or poorly sewn webbing that tears easily are all factors in substandard safety belt construction.
While many tire blowouts are a result of a driver running over something sharp, they can also result from poor manufacturing. Having a professional inspect the tires will help determine which element caused your accident.
Defective Auto Glass
The glass in your windshield is specially designed for protection from impact. An ill-fitting shield or improperly tempered glass can lead to catastrophic injuries.
If the frame of your car is weak, it could lead to dangerous hazards, such as roof cave-ins. We’ll help you determine if your vehicle was constructed with defects.
Fires or Explosions
Unlike what you’ve seen in the movies, cars are not designed to easily blow up. If your vehicle lit on fire or exploded after your collision, seek professional legal aid.
Air Bag Defects
Your air bag is essential in protecting you from flying debris and concussive impact. A defective bag is an extreme liability and could cause a fatality.
