Fort Worth Defective Vehicles Attorney
As well maintained as a vehicle may be, there is virtually nothing that can be done by owners to prevent accidents that are caused by a defect or malfunction. To make matters worse, the generally unpredictable circumstances under which defective vehicles cause these accidents can make them particularly dangerous. When accidents are caused by a defect, the automotive company that is responsible for the defect may be held financially accountable by the accident victim.
At the Woodson Law Firm, we understand just how devastating these accidents can be, and our attorneys can help you pursue an aggressive line of legal action against the automotive company that is found to be responsible for the defect that caused your accident. Though the prospect of taking on a large automotive company may seem overwhelming, our legal team has the experience and the resources to take on any company in the automotive industry.
Claims for Design Defect
Design defects are characterized by fundamental problems that will be inherent to each and every vehicle of that particular year and model. For instance, the high center of gravity characteristic of most SUVs makes these vehicles prone to rollover accidents. Though newer model SUVs have been equipped with technologies that can significantly mitigate the likelihood of a rollover, many older models that predate this technology are still on the road today.
Design defects like this can pose a significant risk to the public. So, while a design defect claim should certainly be used to pursue compensation for accident victims, they can also be used as a tool to prevent others from getting hurt as well. In any event, there is no reason that you should have been put in the situation you are in right now, and our attorneys can help you hold the company responsible for the defect accountable for your pain and suffering.
Claims for Manufacturing Defects
Unlike design defects, manufacturing defects are caused in the process of fabricating the parts that make up a vehicle. As such, these defects are not as common and are less likely to affect other owners of the vehicle that caused your accident. Nonetheless, accidents that are caused by manufacturing defects can be catastrophic and often result in life-changing injuries for victims and their families.
When accidents can be traced back to a defect that was caused at any point in the manufacturing process, we can help accident victims pursue a line of legal action against the company that was responsible for that defect. In addition to the financial compensation that we can help you pursue by filing a claim, your claim can be used to send a message to other manufacturers about the potential consequences of their negligence.
