New Jersey Defective Vehicle Accident Attorneys
One potential cause of auto accidents and serious injuries in New Jersey, and throughout our nation, is the problem of vehicle defects. In an accident caused by a defect in the design of your vehicle, or of another vehicle involved in the accident, the automobile manufacturer may be legally responsible to pay for your injuries, property damage, and other losses suffered. In some cases, a vehicle defect can increase the severity of an accident or of injuries sustained by an occupant of one of the vehicles involved. In other cases, defects in the design or manufacturing of a vehicle can lead to injuries or property damage that could have been avoided had the vehicle not been defective to begin with.
Since automobile design and manufacturing can be extremely complex processes, there are a vast number of different types of defects that can lead to automobile manufacturer liability for accidents and injuries, including but not limited to the following:
- Fuel / Gasoline System Malfunctions (e.g. post-collision fuel-fed fires, sudden fires resulting from crashes)
- Rollovers (vehicles flipping over during an accident)
- Roof Crush (failure of roof supports during a rollover accident)
- Door Mechanism Failures (e.g. doors opening during accidents, allowing occupant to fall out of the vehicle)
- Airbag Failures (e.g. failure of airbag to deploy, or excessive force when deployed)
- Seatbelt Failures (e.g. faulty seatbelt allowing too much occupant movement during an accident)
- Insufficient Side-Impact Mechanisms (exacerbating or allowing avoidable injuries from side impact)
- Tire Defects (e.g. tires blowing out earlier than expected based on observed wear)
