I Was Seriously Injured in a Car Wreck – The Safety Features Didn’t Work!

Auto defects can lead to serious injuries, even death. When a key safety apparatus in a vehicle like a seatbelt or airbag doesn’t function as advertised, the results can be devastating. Time and time again auto companies have released cars with major defects like faulty brakes or accelerators. Victims shouldn’t have to pay their own medical costs and other expenses. The automobile company should compensate you for the pain that you have experienced.

What Causes a Car Defect?

A defect can happen at any number of different points. Some flaws occur during design process, and others manifest during manufacturing. Errors can be left unnoticed by car companies who don’t take the time to properly test their vehicles for safety. Certain greedy corporations may choose to release cars that are unfit into the market because they believe that a recall will be more costly than paying legal damages.
