A qualified Iberville Parish car defect injury lawyer could investigate your accident and help you fight for accountability and justice.

Types of Accidents Due to Automotive Defects

Manufacturers must design and produce safe vehicles. With advancements in technology, cars are now considerably safer. However, problems still occur.

Design Errors in Cars

Mistakes can occur when a vehicle’s design is inherently unsafe. An example of a design error leading to a problem with a vehicle would be the boxy shape and weight distribution of certain SUVs that make them more prone to rolling over.

Production Errors in Cars

Accidents can also occur if a mistake occurs during production. Mistakes on the assembly line could lead to problems in how a car operates, such as when a car suddenly accelerates without warning, has defective brakes, has tire problems like blowouts, or has a faulty steering system.

Minor accidents could become catastrophic when errors in safety systems occur, such as when an airbag fails to deploy, or a seat belt fails to hold a passenger back.

Marketing Errors

Automotive manufacturers could also be responsible for not including adequate operating instructions with their vehicles. For example, a manufacturer could be liable if they fail to tell consumers or mechanics that the tires will start to lose their tread and must be replaced after a set number of miles.

Our dedicated Iberville Parish attorneys could investigate to determine where the car defect occurred. By working closely with vehicle safety experts, accident reconstruction experts, and automotive engineers, they could gather evidence proving the manufacturing company’s liability by showing that the vehicle was defective and prone to accidents or was not sufficiently crashworthy.
