Car accidents can be caused by a multitude of variables such as impaired drivers, unsafe road conditions, and excessive speed. But in some cases, defective auto parts could be the culprit of an accident.

Establishing negligence is the core of any solid personal injury claim. Defective auto part accidents are no different, yet they can be more difficult to pursue alone. Retaining an experienced personal injury attorney is your best option when pursuing these types of claims. Your attorney can establish defective auto part negligence by using strategic investigation tactics and hiring auto experts to verify auto defects. An expert can also be called upon to testify about his or her findings in court if the need arises.
Possible Responsible Parties in Defective Auto Part Claims:
The manufacturer of the defective auto part
The auto manufacturer
Supplier of the defective part
Examples of Faulty Auto Parts Can Include:
Defective tires which can cause blowouts and/or tread separation
Defective steering components
Defective accelerator which can cause sudden and unexpected acceleration
Defective brake parts which can cause the brakes to become inoperable
Unevenly distributed weight which can cause rollovers
Defective ignition which can cause stalling or short circuit
