Types of Defective Car Part Cases
A wide range of accidents can result from defective car parts. Here are a few examples of the types of cases we have handled:
- The tread of a tire separated due to a defect in the manufacturing process. The driver lost control of their vehicle and crashed into you.
- A faulty car seat belt failed to restrain a passenger as designed during an accident. The passenger was thrown from the vehicle and was injured more severely as a result.
- A brake pad cracked and failed due to contaminants introduced during the manufacturing process. As a result, your car crashed into another vehicle.
- A clip on a bumper broke due to poor design, causing part of the bumper to detach on the road, striking your vehicle, and causing you to spin out.
As you can see, there can be multiple factors at play in a defective car part case. Other vehicle parts that could pose a safety hazard when they malfunction include:
- Gas tanks/fuel system failure
- Accelerator controls
- Engine fans
- Steering components
- Wiring systems

Liable Parties in a Defective Car Part Case
Under Florida law, the party that designs, manufactures, installs or prepares a product may be liable for a defective product. In some cases, multiple parties may be liable for the defects.
The liable party in your defective car part case will depend upon the details of your specific case. Our car accident lawyers will investigate the following parties to determine who is legally responsible for your damages:
The company that assembled your vehicle may be responsible if they created a defective part, introduced contaminants that caused the failure, or otherwise are responsible for the failure of the part.
In some cases, the design of the vehicle causes an accident. For example, light SUVs are known to sometimes flip over while turning. In these cases, the designer may be held liable for designing a defective part or vehicle.
In some cases, car manufacturers purchase components from other companies. If the company that manufactured the faulty part is responsible for causing a flaw, they may be held liable for your damages.
Distribution or Shipping Company
If a shipping or distribution company caused a defect, by dropping a case of parts or not maintaining an appropriate temperature, for example, they could be held liable.

How a Defective Car Part Lawyer in Florida Can Help
Facing a legal case can be overwhelming, particularly if you are in pain or facing mounting medical bills. Our team is here to help you with the legal process. We believe in going the extra mile for our clients. We can help you get your car fixed and schedule any case-related appointments, taking some stress off your shoulders. Here is how we can help your defective auto part case:
Gather Evidence to Show Fault
Proving fault in a defective car part case can be complex. Our team will gather data and evidence to prove the defective part was the cause of your accident, not driver error or negligence. Evidence might include accident reports, eyewitness testimony, photos of the scene, repair bills, and more.
Consult With Car Experts
To help prove a faulty part caused your accident, we may secure testimony from car experts. Their insight can strengthen your case. In product liability cases, it is important to leave the vehicle’s parts untouched so that the examiner can take a closer look. We can advise you on how to ensure the car expert can inspect the car to determine what happened and how it happened. Their findings could support your case.
Communicate With You
We provide all our clients with caring, personalized service. This means we are always on hand to answer questions, and we will keep you updated about the details of your case in a timely manner.

Pursue Damages You Deserve
You shouldn’t have to suffer because of someone else’s negligence. Our team will pursue the financial compensation you deserve for your damages, including medical bills, lost wages, physical property damages, and more. You also may be able to recover compensation for pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, and other intangible damages we can assess before determining a monetary value for each.
Wrongful Death Damages in a Florida Defective Car Part Case
If you lost a loved one in a Florida accident involving a defective auto part, we can help you file a wrongful death action against the liable party. A successful wrongful death lawsuit can help families pay the decedent’s final medical bills and funeral and burial arrangements. You also could recover compensation that helps replace the decedent’s financial contribution to the household.
Our team fights for your right to recover compensation. Contact the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733 to discuss the details of your case.
Statute of Limitations for Defective Car Part Cases
Under Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a), you have four years from the date of the accident to pursue a product injury case. If the accident caused a death, you have just two years to pursue a wrongful death case.
This may seem like plenty of time, but it is essential to get started right away. Defective car part cases can be complex. Your legal team needs time to investigate and gather critical evidence about your case. If you miss the filing deadline, you likely won’t be able to pursue damages against the liable party responsible for the defective car part that caused you or your family harm. This is why we encourage you to promptly file your case to protect your right to sue for damages.

The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine works on contingency. We do not earn a dime unless or until you get paid. We know that not having money up front deters many people from seeking legal help.
