Defective vehicle parts are the second leading cause of motor vehicle accidents in the U.S., only behind driver error. While some defects and malfunctions in vehicle parts can be minor, easily fixed and inconsequential, such as a broken cup holder, in the worst cases, defective vehicle parts can cause deadly accidents.
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a defective vehicle part, or if a loved one has died as a result of such a defect, you will likely qualify to file a legal claim seeking compensation for your injuries and losses.
To find out if you are eligible to file a legal claim, contact Gacovino, Lake & Associates today. Our staff of well-trained, highly skilled legal professionals is dedicated to aggressively representing the rights of those who have been injured as a result of defective vehicle parts. We have an impressive track record of going up against corporate lawyers and insurance companies to help our clients recover the maximum amount of compensation they are entitled to.
Types of Defects in Vehicle Parts
Various parts of motor vehicles have been found to be defective and, in turn, contribute to serious crashes and injuries. Examples of recent defective vehicle parts include defective:
designs (i.e. Designs that shape a vehicle to be narrower and taller make that vehicle more top-heavy, thereby significantly increasing the risk of rollover.)
fuel and gas tank systems
Although it may be hard to know when your car has a defective part, should you suspect a defect, consult your mechanic for a thorough inspection and ask him whether any recent recalls have been issued for a part on your vehicle.
