Atlanta Lawyer Recovers Damages for Your Serious Injuries Caused by a Defective Vehicle
Skillfully fighting on your behalf
When a defective auto part causes an accident that injures or kills a driver or someone else on the road and the accident should have been avoidable, the manufacturer may be held legally responsible for the injuries that result. At McMenamy Law, our attorney carefully evaluates the facts of each case to determine whether a defective auto part caused the accident and, if so, who should be responsible for compensating the victims for any injury or a wrongful death that resulted from the accident.
Common defective auto parts
Our attorney has more than two decades of experience handling cases involving a variety of automobile defects, including:
- Defective tires — Car accidents are a common sight on the Atlanta highway system, and one of the most common causes of these collisions is defective tires. Driving on defective tires can result in a sudden blowout or premature de-tread that can cause your vehicle to veer out of control or roll over, potentially causing catastrophic injuries in the process.
- Defective brakes — Driving a car with defective brakes puts drivers, passengers, other vehicles and pedestrians at risk for serious injuries if the brakes stop working. Brake failures may result from faulty design, faulty installation, leaking or clogged brake lines, or worn brake shoes or pads.
- Seat belts — We depend on seat belts to keep us safe from injury in the event of a car crash. However, if a seat belt is not properly manufactured, it may fail to lock or it may collapse during a collision, causing serious injuries for vehicle occupants.
- Car seats — Car accidents are a leading killer of children ages 1 to 12 in the United States. Defective infant or booster seats pose a risk of serious injuries to young children involved in auto accidents. A significant number of children’s car seats have been found to be defective due to manufacturing defects, poor construction, or unclear or incomplete installation instructions.
- Air bags — A defective air bag can either fail to inflate, inflate late during an accident or inadvertently deploy and cause serious injuries to drivers and passengers.
- Vehicle rollovers — Overcorrecting or hitting a median or ditch can cause an automobile to roll over. SUVs and other top-heavy vehicles also have a propensity to roll over based on their design.
When you suffer serious injuries in a car accident due to a vehicle defect, McMenamy Law will evaluate the facts of your case and assess the potential damages available.
