New vehicles are designed and manufactured every year, often promising the latest in safety; however, these cars do not always perform as perfectly as promised. Whether a design flaw or a problem with the manufacturing process, something can go wrong when the car is driven that ultimately injures the driver or passenger. A car accident hurts not only people in the car but others as well, and in some cases can even cause a wrongful death. Ramsey Law Group understands that sometimes a car company is the liable party for an injury or death caused by automotive defects and will help an individual or family hold that company accountable.
Some problems with automobiles that can potentially cause significant harm include defective brakes or brake pads, gas pedals, seat belts, airbags, steering mechanisms, fuel or exhaust system, cooling and heating systems, electronic/computer components, or any structural portions of the vehicle. If something happens and any of these perform incorrectly, it could be extremely dangerous. If an accident does occur because something in the car is defective, it must be shown the driver or passenger was using that part of the car correctly and they had not modified it in any way that may have caused the problem.
We encourage our clients to stay vigilant to anything they notice that seems wrong about their car and have it inspected if need be. Additionally, motor vehicle owners should stay on top of recalls for their vehicle. Often, once a car manufacturer becomes aware of a problem, it will provide consumers an opportunity to repair or replace their car at no cost. If an accident does still occur as the result of a defect, Ramsey Law Group is here to help. When we review a case, we research whether other people have experienced the same automotive defects issue as our client, take note of all the mental, physical, and financial damage done to the client and his or her family. Based on all this, we will work with you to determine a path forward to help get you the payment you deserve.
