Vehicle Manufacturing Defect Claims in Florida
Defects of cars and vehicle parts can cause accidents that may result in injuries or even deaths. A person injured in an accident due to a defective car, motorcycle, ATV, or truck may have a vehicle defect claim. A vehicle defect claim is categorized as a product liability case. The victim should consult with an experienced product liability attorney at the Law Offices of Jason Turchin to discuss the details of such a claim.
Florida Vehicle Defect Claims may be Complicated
A product liability case can be complicated. It is important to have an experienced product liability lawyer review your vehicle accident case. There are two basic types of product liability claims involving vehicles. The vehicle may have had a defective part or a flaw in manufacturing that caused the accident. Another type of vehicle product liability case is if the design of the vehicle was dangerous and caused the injury.
Common Vehicle Defect Claims in Florida
Some common vehicle defects have been the subject of vehicle defect claims. Motorcycles with instability at high speeds, tires prone to blowouts, seat belt failures, roof collapse, insufficient structural integrity, defective airbags, or all terrain vehicles (ATVs) that often roll over have been involved in product liability cases. Injuries caused by a defective vehicle include broken bones, head injuries, collapsed lungs, neck and back injuries, brain damage, paralysis, and even death. People who were injured in an accident that may have been caused by the vehicle or a vehicle part should talk to an experienced product liability lawyer at the Law Offices of Jason Turchin today to see if you have a claim.
The lawyer would identify the responsible parties who should be the defendants for the product liability claim. The manufacturer of the vehicle is likely to be named as a defendant, but other companies may be responsible as well. A parts manufacturer could be included if the accident was caused by a defective part. The car dealership or used car dealer could be another defendant in the case.
Car manufacturers are big businesses who have the resources to hire skilled legal counsel experienced in defending vehicle defect claims. It is crucial for someone who was injured in an accident caused by a vehicle defect to hire a lawyer who has the experience at representing those who have been hurt in an accident.
Proving the Vehicle Defect Claim
Product liability attorneys in Florida may need to prove that the person was injured due to the defective vehicle. In some cases, the cause of the injury is linked very closely to the defective part or design. For example, a person sustains severe facial and head injuries when the airbag fails to deploy in a head-on collision. In other cases, the link to the defective part may not be as obvious. Sometimes it is necessary to hire an expert to help analyze the vehicle to see if a defect caused or contributed to one's injury or death.
The injured person may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost income, future medical bills due to the injuries, mental anguish, and pain and suffering, among other damages.
