Car Accidents and Defective Products
Car accidents can be a traumatic experience. Even the most minor of car accidents can result in emotional, physical, and/or financial damage that can significantly impact a person’s life. What’s more, many of these damages are long lasting, with repercussions continuing long after the accident has taken place. The personal injury attorneys at Worby Groner Edelman, LLP, dedicate themselves to seeking compensation for these injuries so that our clients are not responsible for accidents caused by the fault of another. Among the common causes of accidents are those that are the result of defective products. Our White Plains car accident attorneys can prove fault in these cases so that clients are rewarded with due compensation.
Defective Products and Car Accidents
An automobile consists of many parts that work together to create a functioning vehicle. If any of those parts fails to work properly it can affect the entire vehicle and can make driving unsafe. Sometimes the vehicle in its entirety is unsafe, however, there are also many products within a car that, should they become defective, could lead to a car accident and serious injury. These include:
- Accelerator pedal
- Seat belts
- Air bag
- Steering wheel
When a car accident has occurred, we will investigate to see if the accident was the result of the above defective products or any other defective car part. We are trained to recognize product defects so that fault can be established and appropriate compensation can be sought for our clients.
When car accidents are proven to be the result of defective products, our auto accident attorneys can seek damages under product liability laws. As consumers, we have a right to assume that the car we drive and the parts in that car have been tested and proven to be safe. As long as the product is being used as intended, those products should function normally and provide safety and security. In the case of car accidents, the failure of a product to function properly can lead to disastrous results, including catastrophic injury or even death. If a preventable car accident or injury occurs because a car part was poorly designed, fabricated with subpar materials, or simply failed to function as intended, our client is entitled to compensation for whatever emotional, physical, or financial damages resulted. This is true whether our client was in the car with defective parts or was in another vehicle involved in an accident as a result of defective parts. Any party who suffered as a result of defective products is entitled to appropriate compensation.
If you or someone you love has been involved in a car accident that you believe to be the result of defective products, contact us at Worby Groner Edelman, LLP, at your earliest convenience. Our attorneys have a history of successfully obtaining due compensation for our clients. We can get you the damages you deserve for any physical, emotional, or financial hardships that you have suffered as a result of defective car products.
