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 seatbelt 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. Contact a defective car part lawyer in Florida at 1-800-747-3733 to discuss the details of your specific case.
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.
