What is automotive product liability?

Automotive product liability is the legal area that covers claims against automotive manufacturers for injuries or deaths caused by defective vehicles. These claims can be made against the manufacturer of the vehicle, the manufacturer of a defective part, or both. In order to win an automotive product liability case, you must generally prove that the vehicle or part was defective and that the defect was the cause of your injuries.

There are three main types of defects that can lead to automotive product liability cases: design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects. Design defects are inherent in the design of the vehicle or part and can't be fixed by changing the manufacturing process. Manufacturing defects occur during the production process and are usually limited to a small batch of products. Marketing defects involve problems with the way the product is marketed, such as failing to provide adequate warnings about a known defect.

If you've been injured in an automotive accident, it's important to speak with an experienced automotive product liability lawyer as soon as possible. These cases can be complex, and an experienced lawyer can help you navigate the process and ensure that your rights are protected. 

Examples of automotive defect lawsuits

There have been many high-profile automotive defect lawsuits over the years. Some notable examples include:

- The 2010 Toyota recall, which was prompted by a series of accidents caused by sudden acceleration. Toyota eventually agreed to pay $1.2 billion to settle claims related to the recall.

- The 2015 Takata airbag recall, which affected tens of millions of vehicles from multiple manufacturers. Takata eventually agreed to pay $1 billion to settle claims related to the recall.

- The 2016 GM ignition switch recall, which was prompted by a series of accidents caused by faulty ignition switches. GM eventually agreed to pay $126 million to settle claims related to the recall. 

There have been many other vehicle defect lawsuits related to other car parts, like the Firestone Tire lawsuits. The Firestone cases involved defective tires that could blow out, and were estimated to have resulted in over 250 deaths.

Airbag Defects

Airbag defects can cause catastrophic injuries.  If you or a loved one has been injured due to an airbag defect, you may be eligible to file a product liability claim against the automotive manufacturer. Some common types of airbag claims include:

- Defective airbag design, which can cause the device to fail to deploy or deploy at inappropriate times. 

- Manufacturing defects in the parts used to build the airbag, which can result in malfunctions such as defective inflators or faulty sensors. 

- Marketing defects, including inadequate warnings about potential safety risks or failure to recall vehicles when a defect is discovered.

Faulty Door Sensor Lawsuits

Door sensors are used in many vehicles to detect whether the doors are open or closed, and prevent the vehicle from starting when a door is not closed properly. However, defective door sensors can malfunction and lead to serious injuries. One of the most common types of faulty door sensor lawsuits include Door sensor defects that fail to detect a human and cause crush injuries. 

Inadvertent Airbag Deployment Lawsuits

Inadvertent airbag deployment can occur when the vehicle's airbags inflate without an accident. This can cause serious injuries, including broken bones and eye injuries, and burn injuries. If you have been injured due to inadvertent airbag deployment in your vehicle, you may be eligible to file a claim against the automotive manufacturer. Our automotive product liability lawyers have handled numerous claims of inadvertent airbag deployment against FCA/Chrysler/Jeep.

Defective Seat Belt Lawsuits

Seat belts are designed to protect occupants in the event of an accident by restraining them in their seats. However, defective seat belts can fail to deploy or loosen during an accident, which can lead to serious injuries. If you have been injured due to a defective seat belt, you may be eligible to file a product liability claim against the automotive manufacturer.

Ignition Switch Defects

Many modern vehicles have ignition switches that detect whether the driver's seatbelt is fastened and prevent the vehicle from starting if it is not. However, these ignition switches can malfunction and cause the vehicle to shut off while it is being driven, which can lead to serious accidents. 

Tire Tread Separation Lawsuits

Tire tread separation can occur when the tread on the tire comes off of the rest of the tire while the vehicle is being driven. This can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle and lead to serious accidents. If you have been injured in an accident caused by tire tread separation, you may be eligible to file a product liability claim against the automotive manufacturer.

Recalled Vehicle Lawsuits

If you have been injured in an accident caused by a recalled vehicle, you may be eligible to file a product liability claim against the automotive manufacturer. Many times, automotive manufacturers will recall vehicles after they have been involved in accidents or have been found to have defects that could cause accidents. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a recalled vehicle, call us today to see if you may qualify for compensation.

Contingency Fee Vehicle Defect Lawyers

If you have been injured in an accident caused by a vehicle defect, you may be eligible to file a product liability claim against the automotive manufacturer. At our law firm, we understand the complex legal process involved in automotive defects cases and work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you only pay if you settle or win your case. We waive all fees and costs if there is no recovery. Contact us today to speak with one of our experienced automotive product liability lawyers and learn more about how we can help you pursue compensation for your injuries.
