Common Car Defects that Lead to Serious Injuries
Sometimes you drive a brand new car off the lot and figure out right away that it’s got some major issues. In other cases, you may not learn that your car has a defect until you are in an accident. Many people unwittingly purchase defective cars and don’t figure it out until the damage has already been done.
Common car defects include:
- Seatbelts that don’t remain latched
- Air bags that don’t deploy
- Turn, brake, and emergency signals that don’t light up
- Tires that rip, pop, or leak
- Auto-lock mechanisms that fail to keep doors sealed during an accident
- Seat backs that fall backward, collapse, or break during an accident
- Braking systems that don’t work
- Steering columns that lock up
- Windows that are not properly sealed or that have cracks or holes in them—and more
You may not discover that your car has any of the above defects until you are in an accident. Unfortunately, such defects can cause collisions and make other accidents even worse by failing to protect you, limiting your control of your vehicle, ejecting you from the car, and more.
If it happens to you, you will likely end up with hefty medical expenses and injury-related costs, and you may need to file a personal injury lawsuit against the manufacturer in order to recover the compensation you need to make a full recovery.
