Product Liability For Your Defective Vehicle Accident

Under New York law, vehicles must be reasonably safe for their intended use. When purchasing a vehicle, consumers expect it to function properly and drive safely. Unfortunately, car malfunctions are a lot more common than most people would think. When manufacturers fail to produce vehicles free of dangerous defects, they must be held responsible for any resulting accidents that occur. Product liability lawsuits, especially ones involving defective vehicles, can be remarkably technical, requiring vast research, detailed investigations, and assessment to successfully prove.

Determining which parties should be held responsible for your auto defect car accident involves examining the production and distribution of the vehicle. Please, resist the urge to repair or replace your car. It is crucial to preserve your vehicle so that our world-renown experts can meticulously analyze it for malfunctions, defects, flaws, and all other relevant evidence. To establish product liability, we must demonstrate that your car or its parts were defective and produced an unreasonable risk, the defect led to your injuries while it was driven as intended, and the car was not substantially modified from the original condition. Depending on the unique circumstances of your accident, the auto manufacturer, specific component manufacturer, distributor, or dealer may all be held accountable for your damages.
