Can You Sue a Vehicle Manufacturer for A Defective Vehicle?

As auto defect attorneys, we sue vehicle manufacturers all over the country for dangerous and defective vehicles that cause serious injury or death to drivers and passengers.   A victim of a defective product, including dangerous vehicles, can hold the manufacturer responsible. Automobile manufacturers can be liable under strict liability laws that require no negligence - only an unreasonably defective vehicle.   Negligence in the manufacture, design, building, or testing of a vehicle is also basis for liability in a lawsuit.

What Are Some Common Issues that Lawyers and Regulators See in Auto Defect Cases?

Many car manufacturers have problems with airbags that fail to deploy, seatbelt failures, broken seatbacks, fuel system fires, steering instability, rollovers, failure to install proper safety technology, and roof collapse. We also see many tire manufacturers put defective tires on the market with a history of failures.   These dangerous safety defects are common to product liability lawyers who see serious personal injuries, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, and wrongful deaths as a result.

Does There Have to Be a Recall on My Vehicle to Win My Auto Defect Case?

Recalls are either done voluntarily by the auto manufacturer or are ordered by the Federal government. Many defects are not recalled for various reasons.  A recall is not required to bring a case to court.  Also, a recall does not guarantee you will win in court.

What if I Am Not the First Owner of The Vehicle?

You do not have to be the first owner of the vehicle.  You also do not need to be the person who purchased or currently owns the vehicle in order to bring a products liability claim. If you were the driver or passenger of the defective vehicle, or an innocent third party hurt by a defective vehicle, you are able to bring a claim for products liability in most states against the automobile manufacturer.

What if I Do Not Have the Vehicle Anymore?

Call us whether you have the vehicle or not.

Why Should I Call Now?

We have handled wrongful death, catastrophic injury, paralysis, spinal cord injury, burns and other serious product liability cases all over the country. Evidence in your case can be lost or disappear if it is not preserved immediately.  Waiting too long may mean you cannot bring a successful lawsuit.
