Defective Vehicle Accident Attorney
Experienced Car Accident Lawyer in Fort Lauderdale
When a car fails to perform properly it puts the driver, passengers, and everyone else on the road at risk. Such issues could be caused by a flaw in the vehicle’s design or manufacturing. Automobile manufacturers are responsible for following certain safety guidelines and regulations in order to ensure each vehicle they produce is safe and reliable. However, if they fail to adequately test their vehicles or they do not follow safety requirements, it could result in a dangerous crash.

About Vehicle Defects
Vehicles go through many steps of design and manufacturing, and if any errors take place along the way, it could have disastrous consequences. While every vehicle is different and flaws can impact any part of the car, there are certain defects that tend to be more common and others that are especially hazardous.
Common vehicle flaws include:
- Airbag defects and failures
- Defective brakes
- Tire flaws
- Door latch malfunctions and failures
- Fuel system malfunctions
- Seatbelt defects or failures
- Structural flaws
- Roof defects
- Inadequate impact protection
- Transmission defects
If you were injured in a car accident caused by a vehicle malfunction, you may be eligible for compensation for the resulting damages. Defective brakes or transmission flaws could cause the vehicle to glitch, resulting in a severe crash. Or, perhaps vehicle defects did not cause your crash but allowed for more severe injuries than you would have had if your vehicle had been fully functional. For example, a defective seatbelt could cause you to suffer more serious injuries in a crash. Or, a structural roof flaw might cause your car to crush in a rollover incident, causing the passengers or driver more harm.
