Automotive Defects

Automobiles are integral to our everyday lives. Whether you drive a car, truck, minivan, or SUV, you rely on the auto manufacturer to design and build a safe vehicle for you and your family. We all trust that the car companies use the greatest possible care to ensure that their customers are safe, but the truth is that occupant protection often comes in second to car companies’ bottom lines. When the companies’ financial interests are put ahead of safety, terrible crashes and catastrophic injuries happen.

SUV Rollovers

Catastrophic injuries often occur when SUVs rollover. Many of these injuries are caused by design and manufacturing problems, including:

  • Defective and inadequate roofs and roof pillar designs
  • Poor vehicle stability
  • Poor window designs
  • Defective occupant restraint systems, like bad seat belt and seat designs

Our car defect lawyers work with the best investigators, design engineers, biomechanics, and crash reconstruction engineers in the country to build strong cases against car companies like Toyota, Honda, General Motors, Nissan, Ford, and Chrysler.
