A car crash can be a scary and traumatic experience. On top of that, suffering injuries can leave you in a vast amount of pain and unable to work. Your medical bills keep coming in, and you don’t know how you are going to make your payments. And what’s more frustrating is when the accident was caused by something that may have been avoidable, such as a defective car part.
When auto parts fail to work properly and cause accidents, holding the negligent party responsible can allow you to recover monetary damages to pay for your recovery. Filing a product liability claim against the manufacturer or automaker is a complicated legal process that requires the experience of an Austin defective part car accident lawyer from Colley & Colley, LLP.
Defective Parts and Product Liability
Motor vehicle manufacturers have a legal obligation to design and build cars and trucks that are as safe as possible. When you are injured because a manufacturer failed in their responsibility to keep you safe, you have the right to file an injury claim and pursue the recovery of damages from the automaker.
Product liability law is a complex set of rules governing the legal principle of holding manufacturers, designers, distributors, and others in the manufacturing and distribution chain accountable for bringing unsafe products to the market. If a product does not meet the expectations of a reasonable consumer and causes harm, the responsible party in the manufacturing chain can be held financially liable for your injuries.
Types of Defective Auto Parts
Most defective part recalls are initiated by the many claims that are filed by consumers. After ensuring that you have the proof you need to successfully file a lawsuit against a manufacturer, we will thoroughly investigate your accident by bringing in expert resources to help prove negligence.
