Auto Products Liability

Auto products liability refers to motor vehicle manufacturers and their legal duty to the public to design and manufacture safe - crashworthy vehicles. This means that all vehicles must be designed to be safe in foreseeable crashes and accidents.

The protection that an automobile provides to the occupants in the event of an accident is referred to as crash worthiness. If an automaker produces a car or truck that is determined not to be crashworthy and the design defect contributed to the accident or worsened the injuries sustained, the automobile manufacturer could be held liable for the damages incurred.

Types of Auto Defects

  • 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.
