Did A Defective Part Lead To A Car Crash?
Highway injuries aren’t always the result of collisions. Many injuries are the result of mechanical failures that cause a vehicle to lose control. Almost any mechanical failure can cause problems, but the most common include:
- Brake failure: can cause you to leave the road or crash into the vehicle ahead of you
- Defective tires: can cause sudden blowouts and complete loss of control
- Broken headlights and taillights: major causes of rear-end collisions
- Power steering failure: complete loss of control
- Seat belt failure: fail to protect you in a head-on collision
- Airbag failure: fail to protect you from the brunt of a collision
- Defective wipers: can cause you to drive blind
The Part That Failed
Defective auto parts can be defective because they do not stand up to normal wear and tear. This defect may be because the part was poorly designed, poorly manufactured or poorly documented.
At The Briggs Law Firm in Ocala, Florida, we file claims for injuries or deaths caused by products with any of these defects. We work hard to obtain maximum compensation from the company that built or sold you the part that failed. This compensation pays for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of the ability to work, pain and suffering and, in egregious cases, as when a company knowingly sells you tires with a tread flaw, punitive damages.
Until our attorneys win compensation for you, you owe us nothing. So there is no risk in working with us at The Briggs Law Firm.
