Auto Product Liability
Lafayette, Louisiana Car Accident Attorney – 337.660.2699
Have you been in a
car accident that involved just yourself and the environment? Are you confident that
you had been driving responsibly and did not contribute to the collision?
If you are suspecting that another party might be liable, you are probably
correct. In many car accidents – the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) estimates between 5% and 10% – the root cause
is a defective auto product.
To bring a lawsuit against the auto product manufacturer, or the parent
company automaker, you should build your case with a highly-experienced
professional. Here at Duck Law Firm, LLC, we have more than two decades’
worth of legal and trial experience we can put to good use for you and
your claim. Why not see what our Lafayette car accident lawyer can do
for you? Our
initial consultations are free – you owe us nothing upfront!
Different Types of Defective Auto Products
All components of your automobile must work together in order for the vehicle
to run smoothly and safely. If a part fails, you might never know it until
it is too late. For these reasons and many more, it is critical that auto
part manufacturers, automakers, and auto mechanics take special care when
designing, creating, or repairing automobile parts and products. If they
do not, any resulting accidents could be their responsibility.
Auto parts that may become defective and cause injury include:
Defective By Design Or Creation
There are some ideas that are bad from conception. When an auto product
is defective or dangerous just by its very nature, this is known as defective
by design. An example of an auto product that is defective by design would
be a seatbelt that cannot be cut by any means, which could potentially
trap someone inside a vehicle after a crash.
Other ideas are perfect on paper but flawed in execution. When an auto
part becomes defective only due to the mistakes of the people or machines
crafting them, this is called defective by manufacturing. For example,
an airbag may call for a certain amount of explosive chemicals in the
inflator and be safe for use; if twice that amount was used by mistake
during manufacturing, it could rupture violently and unexpectedly, harming
the driver or passenger.
