Elgin Auto Defects Lawyer

Did a Defective Auto Part Cause Your Accident?

Since the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act was enacted in 1996, more than 390 million motor vehicles have been recalled, along with 46 million tires, 66 million pieces of auto equipment and 42 million safety seats. Despite automotive safety recalls and other efforts to boost road safety, motor vehicle accidents continue to be caused or worsened by defective auto parts.

Experienced Lawyers For Accidents Involving Auto Defects

Auto defects can happen at Dodge, Ford, Toyota, Subaru, Honda, Hyundai, GM and many other auto and auto parts manufacturing companies. Our attorneys have the experience to handle the following scenarios:

  • Roof crush injuries could raise questions about a vehicle's crashworthiness.
  • Defective air bags may suddenly deploy or fail to deploy. Either situation can cause serious injury or death.
  • Tire defects can cause vans and SUVs to roll. Tread separation can cause blowouts and a loss of control.
  • Defective fuel systems and unsafely located gas tanks can cause car explosions and fires.
  • Accidents caused by defective child seats, including improper labeling for age and weight restrictions or incorrect installation instructions

It may not be immediately clear whether a defective auto part or defective design played a role in an accident. An experienced lawyer can make sure an accident is properly investigated for indications that an auto defect played a role.
