What to Do When a Defective Car Part Causes an Accident

Common Defects that Cause Car Accidents

You’re probably aware of the specific human behaviors which tend to cause car accidents, such as:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (or both)
  • Failure to adhere to traffic rules, signs, and lights
  • Putting on makeup while driving
  • Road rage and aggressive driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Talking on the phone while driving
  • Driving in the wrong direction
  • Failure to use turn signals
  • Following too closely
  • Excessive speeding
  • Drowsy driving

However, you may not be aware of these common auto defects, which could also put you at risk of experiencing a serious accident:

  • Under-inflated tires
  • Defective headlights and taillights
  • Defective steering and suspension
  • Defective wipers or de-frosting mechanisms
  • Defective brakes

Liability for Car Accidents Caused by Defective Parts

Any of the above could cause you to flip, roll, collide with other vehicles, or get into other expensive, injurious, and personally costly accidents. Such defects are often the result of mistakes in the manufacturing process, inherent design errors, or other failures to properly test, evaluate, and approve certain products before they hit the road. If you believe your accident may have been the result of a defective or unsafe part, the best thing you can do is get in touch with an experienced auto accident attorney.
