Meticulous Auto Defect Discovery

It is not always easy to identify a defective auto part; in fact, it rarely is. Experience, diligence, and passion make Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys the leaders in the auto product liability community, and these attributes are essential in an auto defect case. Unfortunately, not all victims receive compensation, and the difference between ten million and zero is successfully identifying and analyzing the auto defects.

One Man's Loss

Bill, an accident victim, woke up from a coma in the hospital. He had no idea where he was, nor did he know how he managed to get there. He writhed in pain as he tried to put the pieces back together, and when he had, he was seized with terror. "Where are my kids? What happened?" Some of his deepest fears were realized.

He had been on the freeway with his wife, children, and his children's friends when another vehicle sideswiped his vehicle. His SUV rolled over several times. Bill's seatbelt failed, and he was ejected from the vehicle into a tree by the side of the road. No one believed he would survive. His wife, best friend, lover and mother of his children was killed when the SUV's roof was crushed. Bill's children were unharmed, but one of the two children invited along, a 10-year-old boy, died in the accident.

Too Much to Bear

Bill underwent 15 operations on his stomach, knees, hips and left arm. He had reconstructive surgery on his right knee and learned how to walk again. Financially, Bill was buried by hospital and funeral expenses. He contacted personal injury attorneys, and they collected the $60,000 policy limit from the insurance company of the driver who sideswiped his vehicle. He used the majority to make payments on some of his obligations and $15,000, out of his own pocket, to help with what he owed. One day, he was told about Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys and our commitment to auto defect victims.

Trying to Make Things Right

When we heard Bill's story, we knew there was a possibility of an auto defect -- and perhaps more than one. Bill's story is enraging and heartbreaking, but not unique. We had seen these defects before, on numerous cases that we have personally handled. We secured Bill's SUV and immediately noticed that Bill's SUV had three defects: defective seatbelts, insufficient roll stability and a weak roof.

It is sickening to see the same defects on the same vehicles time and time again. We immediately knew that the auto manufacturer was responsible for Bill's tragedy, and we knew they had to pay. At a formal mediation with the auto maker, Brian Chase and John Bisnar were successful in persuading them to settle the case. The money enabled Bill to pay off all of his debts and set up college funds for his two children. His immediate future was secure, and he began to carry on with his life.

Our Case Results

  • Automakers often negligently sell cars that have defects that can lead to injuries or death:
  • Sudden Acceleration: A car can accelerate to full speed without pressing the gas pedal and may not be able to be stopped by the brakes
  • Rollovers: Taller cars like 15-passenger vans are much more likely to rollover under dangerous driving conditions and cause injuries.
  • Roof Crush: Rollover accidents are especially dangerous when the vehicle roof is not enforced, leading to major injuries or death.
  • Airbag Failure: Consumers expect their airbag to protect them in a crash, and passengers can be injured terribly if the airbag does not go off in the event of a crash.
  • Seatbelt Failure: Defective seatbelts can click into position but then release when jolted suddenly, offering no protection in a car crash.
  • Seat Back Failure: Many car seats are made cheaply and can break in the event of a rear-end accident, leading to head injuries for the driver or a passenger behind them.
