Defective Motor Vehicle Safety Equipment
While many car accidents are caused by driver negligence, sometimes accidents are unavoidable because of motor vehicle defects. Likewise, drivers and passengers can obtain greater injuries when the safety equipment designed to protect them fails. If you are injured or a loved one dies because of a defective car, truck, motorcycle or other motor vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation through a product liability claim. At Martinez & Schill LLP, we are skilled in helping clients obtain compensation from vehicle manufactures, parts manufacturers, dealerships, automotive supply stores and other liable parties. Our San Diego personal injury lawyers will aggressively represent your best interests.
Accidents Caused By Defective Safety Equipment
When you buy a car, you have an expectation that it will perform as it was designed to and that the design itself is safe. This is not always true, however, and devastating accidents can result. If a seat belt, airbag, car seat, brakes or any other essential safety feature fails, serious injuries and fatalities can occur. Sometimes, a vehicle manufacturer is not aware of the problem until accidents happen. At other times, they are aware of the problem but do not issue a timely recall to solve it. In either situation, they can be held liable for your damages.
Lawsuits involving defective automotive equipment typically involve multiple plaintiffs and can become complicated. Our attorneys are experienced in handling complex personal injury claims. We focus on obtaining the best possible results for our clients and securing maximum compensation for their injuries or the deaths of their loved ones. Vehicle manufacturers have deep pockets, but they also have the resources for top-notch legal representation. Our lawyers have skill, experience and determination to handle these challenging cases and obtain successful resolutions.
