Vehicle Defect Litigation in Dallas, TX

In 2006, there were 10.4 million motor vehicle accidents resulting in 42,600 deaths within 30 days of the accident. Motor vehicle accidents often result in catastrophic injuries to drivers, passengers, and bystanders. Our vehicle defect litigation lawyer knows that driving is dangerous business and auto accidents can happen anywhere: on the commute to or from work, in the parking lot at the mall, or even close to home in our own neighborhoods. Injury, property damage, stress, the wrongful death of a loved one, and various physical and emotional complications are but a few of the potential issues people face following an auto accident.

Manufacturing or design defects can be the cause of some auto accidents. If the tires are defective or the motor vehicle is designed in such a way that it is prone to rollover during sharp turns or during a collision, you may have grounds to file a product liability claim.

We offer a free initial consultation to discuss the circumstances of your injuries and/or accident. We have successfully represented many clients in personal injury and product liability cases both in Texas and throughout the U.S.

Defective Tires

When a defective tire fails, results can range from the inconvenience of changing a tire on the roadside to an inherent risk of a serious rollover auto accident and injuries. Defects can include a tire's tread separating from the rest of the tire or a tire's sudden rupture, commonly called a blowout. In 2000, Firestone had a defective tire recall that involved some SUV models. Defective tires have been known to cause serious auto accidents, injuries, and deaths. Tire manufacturers are liable when they offer unsafe products.

Roof Crush

During a rollover auto accident, a crush-resistant roof will help protect a driver and passengers from serious head injuries. SUVs are more prone to rollover accidents, and a roof that crushes is more likely to subject a vehicle's occupants to concussions, head trauma, and brain injuries. In addition, roof crush can result in occupants being ejected, a situation that nearly always results in grave injuries or fatalities.

Seat Belt Failures

Buckling up is the law because it saves lives. Seat belts are meant to protect drivers and passengers from avoidable harm should they become involved in an accident; however, sometimes seat belts fail to restrain. A faulty or defective seat belt can result in a serious injury, ejection from a vehicle, or even death. Vehicle manufacturers are responsible for making vehicles that are safe.

Vehicle Rollovers

When a vehicle rolls over in an accident, chances are high that serious injury (even fatality) may result. SUVs and vans are more likely to roll over during auto accidents, making them more dangerous to drive. Vehicle rollovers can also result in roof crush, which may expose the driver and passengers to head and brain injuries or ejection from the vehicle. More likely to cause serious injury than other types of accidents, vehicle rollovers can also happen because of auto design or manufacturing defects.

Airbag Injuries

Airbags are intended to quickly come between you and damaging debris, preventing injuries. Airbags inflate at close to 200 miles per hour. When they are not fully inflated before making contact with a driver or passenger or when they deploy inadvertently, they become dangerous projectiles. Injuries from airbags can include eye damage, concussion, or burns, especially for smaller or younger individuals.
