There may be product liability claims in your car accident

A person may suffer many different types of personal injury, including injury by a defective product, work-related injury and others. Arguably the most dangerous or catastrophic personal injuries will be the result of a car accident. Such accidents tend to be on the mind of many drivers on the road because most drivers know that the size and weight of cars can result in significant injury.

Victims who are injured in a car accident can file personal injury lawsuits in order to be compensated, and the purpose of these lawsuits is usually to determine fault. When one party is determined to be at fault in an accident, then that party generally has to pay for any damages caused as a result of the accident. However, a thorough investigation into an accident may reveal more than just who caused the accident itself.

Automobiles are designed to provide some level of protection in the event of an accident. Not only are tests conducted to ensure that a vehicle is designed to hold up structurally in the event of an accident, but features such as seat belts and airbags exist to minimize the injuries suffered in an accident. If these features fail, some of the liability for your injuries could lie with the vehicle's manufacturer.

Of course, if someone else's negligence led to an accident, you could certainly still seek compensation for your injuries from them. However, depending on the circumstances, you may also be able to seek damages from your vehicle's manufacturer, leading to even greater compensation. If you have been injured in a car accident in Tennessee, consider meeting with an attorney who can help you investigate your accident further and ensure that you are receiving the compensation that you truly deserve.
