There are enough dangers on the road today. A defective automobile is literally an accident waiting to happen, and the driver is already in trouble.
Lawyer Phillip Duncan prosecutes automobile makers and part manufacturers who allow structurally deficient vehicles on the market. By ignoring their legal and ethical duty to provide safe cars, manufacturers may be responsible for countless tragedies.
Oversights in design and construction may range from faulty seatbelts and airbags to unsafe tires, increased rollover propensity, door latch failures, and gas tanks liable to explode. Examples of defective vehicles include:
- 15-passenger van rollovers
- SUV rollovers
- Defective tires
- Safety device failure
- Defective brake systems
- Defective fuel systems
- Door latch defects
- Faulty steering systems
- Spontaneous acceleration
- Poor roof crush resistance
- Faulty engine lights
- Commercial truck cab guard defects
- Unsafe moving trailers
Our defective automobile investigation team works with skilled engineers and researchers to examine factors such as crashworthiness, stability, and safety standard compliance. Auto makers who are held liable for design defects and poor crashworthiness may be ordered to pay millions in restitution to injured victims or families of fatally injured victims.
