Vehicle defects have become ubiquitous with information about new dangers and recalls coming out on a weekly basis. However, as common as vehicle defects have become, the liability of those responsible for these defects has not lessened. In fact, product liability lawsuits against negligent automotive and parts manufacturers are at an all-time high as more and more victims of these careless corporations step forward.
If you or someone you love has been injured by a defective vehicle, please contact the Hornbuckle Firm online or by calling our Seattle product liability lawyer at (425) 679-0742 to schedule a free and informative consultation today.
Common Vehicle Defects
Vehicle defects that pose significant threat to drivers and passengers include:
- Poor vehicle design such as gas tank placement
- Faulty airbags
- Defective seatbelts and door handles
- Electrical errors
- Brake malfunction
- Accelerator issues
These and other defects often lead to serious or fatal injury. When you or someone you care about sustains injury from a vehicle defect, you need an experienced product liability attorney on your side as soon as possible. Seattle product liability lawyer Stephen Hornbuckle is here to begin working on your case right away for help in securing every penny you deserve.
Your Rights after a Recall
When a vehicle is recalled, auto manufacturers must inform owners of risks by mail and offer free services to amend the problem. Sadly, recalls often only go to the car’s original owner and are typically sent to the address on file when the vehicle was first purchased. This means that many people are never made aware of vehicle recalls.
Even when they are received, simply recalling a vehicle does not negate a company’s liability if their negligence results in injury – it does however give them an advantage when victims attempt to seek compensation on their own.
If you have sustained an injury from a defective vehicle, don’t face the auto industry alone. Call our experienced Seattle product liability lawyer at (425) 679-0742 today to learn more about your rights.
