Auto Defect Lawyer

in Wilkes-Barre, PA

Auto defect accidents are quite common and that's why you may need an auto defect lawyer. Auto, truck, and bus manufacturers are required to follow strict safety regulations when producing vehicles and auto parts. When they take shortcuts, fail to follow regulations, or fail to warn of a potential problem, innocent people can be harmed or killed. If you have been seriously injured or a loved one killed in an auto accident caused by a recalled or defective vehicle or a defective part, you need an experienced auto defect lawyer to protect your rights when dealing with automakers and parts manufacturers and their lawyers and insurance companies. This goes for those injured due to defective trucks, buses, or defective vehicle parts.

An auto defect lawyer can help when an auto defect accident causes serious or fatal Injuries

Defective cars, trucks, buses, or negligently designed or manufactured auto parts can result in devastating injuries and tragic deaths, as seen in the 124 death claims and hundreds of injury claims linked to GM ignition switch failure. The most recent mass-scale recall, Takata airbags, continues to grow and has now affected tens of millions of vehicles. The NHTSA has confirmed that 16 people in the U.S. have been killed when their defective Takata airbag inflators exploded. In addition, at least 250 people in the U.S. were injured by exploding Takata airbag inflators. A defect in the airbags is causing them to shoot metal pieces into the auto cabin, putting drivers and passengers in serious risk of injury. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, contact an auto defect lawyer today.
