When Auto Defects Contribute To An Injury

If someone runs a red light and hits your car in an intersection, it is obvious the other driver was at fault. But what if your injury was compounded because your seat belt failed to perform as it should? Then the auto manufacturer may also be at fault.

If you have suffered an injury in a car accident because of an auto defect, you may be entitled to additional compensation from the manufacturer. At the law firm of Tucker & Miller in Phoenix, Arizona, our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case.

Examining The Accident Within The Accident: Was The Auto Manufacturer Negligent?

Injuries caused by auto defects are sometimes referred to as the "accident within the accident." The cars we drive are designed to protect us from the impact of an accident. However, when a safety feature fails, the occupant of the vehicle can suffer injuries that otherwise would not have occurred.

Even if you were at fault for an accident, you may have a personal injury claim against the auto manufacturer. Sadly, many lawyers are not familiar with product liability laws. As a result, many accident victims go uncompensated for serious injuries suffered due to auto defects.
