Injuries Caused By Defective Auto Parts
A dangerous product can cause serious injury or wrongful death to innocent consumers who use it. Especially dangerous are defective auto parts, since malfunctioning equipment can lead to accidents on the road and off.
At Christiansen Law Offices, we help people who have been injured by defective auto products. We can help you seek compensation for the injuries and other losses you have suffered due to this dangerous product.
Defective Auto Products
Auto manufacturers are responsible for manufacturing products that are safe to the public. All too often, however, they fail to meet this obligation by rushing products into the marketplace with inadequate testing. Pursuing an auto product liability case is important in protecting your own rights, as well as holding negligent auto manufacturers to account and protecting future consumers.
Defective Seat Belts
Seat belts are supposed to save lives. But when they are not properly designed and installed, they may be more likely to cause injuries than prevent them.
Seat belt failure can lead to a number of serious injuries, including bone fractures, head injuries, spinal cord injuries and even wrongful death. If you or someone close to you has been injured due to a defective seat belt or another safety feature such as a defective air bag, it is important to have experienced legal representation on your side.
We handle a wide range of defective seat belt cases, including those involving:
- Seat belts unlatching during an accident
- Lap belt injuries
- Malfunctioning seat belt retractors
We will investigate the facts of your case to determine what went wrong, and how seat belt failure contributed to your accident injury. Our attorneys have successfully handled numerous product liability claims for clients throughout the Las Vegas area, and are prepared to help you.
Brakes are among the most important systems in an automobile, and it is important to check them regularly and fix any problems that arise. However, some cases of brake failure are due to manufacturing defects or faulty maintenance, and the car owner could not have foreseen them.
There are many ways in which brake failure can lead to car accidents, truck accidents and other motor vehicle accidents. Accidents can occur due to defective power brakes, parking brakes, emergency brakes and failures in the brake shift interlock. The pads can harden. The hydraulic system can fail.
If these problems arise due to defects in design, manufacturing or negligent auto repair, accident victims may be able to pursue compensation through a product liability claim.
The connection between a faulty auto product and an accident is not always readily apparent. Our attorneys will carefully investigate the facts of your case to determine how and why you were injured in this way. We are adept at preparing cases for trial and presenting compelling arguments for our clients. We will do everything in our power to help you achieve a favorable legal result.
Tire Blowout Accidents
Defective tires can lead to serious motor vehicle accidents, causing catastrophic injuries and wrongful death. When tires are not manufactured properly, tire tread separation and tire blowouts can result. Tire failure can be especially dangerous in automobiles with a high center of gravity, such as SUVs. When tires blow out in these automobiles, they may rollover, exposing drivers and passengers to the risk of serious brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.
