Auto defects: As serious as they sound

Like most people, there's a good chance you spend a good amount of time behind the wheel of your car. While you assume your vehicle will keep you safe at all times, you never know what could happen when you hit the road.

You should never overlook the fact that an accident could be the result of a vehicle defect. In other words, it may not be another person who causes a crash, but instead something that is wrong with your car.

Auto defects can be associated with almost every part of your vehicle, including but not limited to:

  • Airbag
  • Seat belt
  • Tires
  • Transmission
  • Steering
  • Floor mats
  • Brakes
  • Window glass
  • Explosion upon impact
  • Sudden acceleration

When buying a car, you do your best to ensure that it's 100 percent safe. Of course, you know that not all defects are known. For this reason, you could be driving a car that has the potential to cause an accident when you least expect it.

At our law firm, we've represented many people who have been injured by automobile defects. If you find yourself in this position, you must first focus on your health and well-being. From there, you can turn your attention to seeking financial compensation for your injuries and other damages.

Auto defects are a big deal, so you need to be aware of this potential problem. You can't spend your life worried about a motor vehicle accident, but you should at least understand your legal rights. This will put you in better position should you be part of an accident in the future.
