Types of Motor Vehicle Defects
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) monitors vehicle safety, oversees investigations into potentially dangerous vehicles and administers vehicle recalls. Millions of defective vehicles and faulty vehicle parts are recalled each year.
Common motor vehicle defects that our car accident attorneys have handled include:
- Brakes and brake systems
- Steering systems
- Fuel systems
Motor Vehicle Defects and Product Liability
Product liability in motor vehicle defect cases typically relates to factors including:
- Unsafe design, such as that of early sports utility vehicles (SUVs) that were vulnerable to rollovers
- Manufacturing flaws, in which vehicles or vehicle parts reach consumers with a production defect that makes them dangerous
The attorneys at Guajardo & Marks have the knowledge, courtroom experience and resources to challenge major vehicle manufacturers when their negligence results in harm to innocent people.
