Legal options available for victims of auto defects

The attorneys at Bart Durham Injury Law have over 75 years of experience in motor vehicle injury cases. In this time we have seen many different types of injuries, caused by various car defects.

Some of these problems, such as those involving airbags and seatbelts, become the topics of national headlines. However, there are many lesser-known defects that can easily lead to serious injuries and fatalities. Some of these auto defects produce the following problems:  

  • Malfunctioning steering systems
  • Tire blowouts
  • Tread separation
  • Unintended acceleration
  • Fires and explosions
  • Rollovers

Those who have been hurt due to such defects often face crushing medical expenses. This financial burden is sometimes compounded by an inability to work during recovery. Victims in these situations often feel frustrated and powerless. Fortunately, it is possible for them to take their power back through product liability litigation. These types of lawsuits may provide victims with the ability to hold manufacturers and distributors responsible for auto defects. In some cases, compensation can be obtained that will cover the financial losses related to a defective car part.

It can be intimidating to go against large car manufacturers. At Bart Durham, we are not afraid of these companies. We will always work hard for the interests of our clients and do not shy away from legal battles. No matter how powerful the company, we will not back down in our fight for the compensation our clients deserve.
