Accident Caused by Defective Auto Parts
Victims who are injured in a car accident, truck accident, or any other type of motor vehicle accident have the right to pursue legal recourse against the party responsible for causing their damages. In most traffic accident cases, the responsible party is often another driver – as driver error and negligence causes a majority of accidents. There are times, however, when accidents may be caused by other factors, particularly by defective auto parts.
Anyone who has paid attention to the news will surely realize that auto part manufacturers are frequently issuing recalls for unsafe products. When auto products are defectively designed, manufactured, or marketed, they can pose serious dangers to drivers and to public safety. A few examples of defective auto parts that commonly cause accidents and injuries include:
- Defective tires
- Defective brakes
- Steering wheel defects
- Airbag defects
- Defective tail lights
Ultimately, any defective or malfunctioning auto part can create serious risks. When these defective parts affect drivers on high speed roads or are found in larger commercial vehicles, the risks intensify. Fortunately, injured victims can work with a car accident attorney in Austin to file a personal injury claim against the manufacturer or any other party that can be held liable for the defective or malfunctioning auto part.
