Defective Vehicle: Who Is To Blame?
If you are involved in a traffic accident that resulted from a defect in your vehicle, you could be entitled to recuperate your costs from the parties involved in manufacturing the vehicle. It is important that you understand how the process works when filing a personal injury claim that is based on a defective product. This article will discuss the different types of claims you can make, and who could be held responsible.
Vehicles That Were Manufactured With Defect
This claim relates to the vehicle that has been manufactured in a way that was dangerously defective. The defect could be caused by an error in manufacturing the car. It could also be caused by a faulty part, or an issue that happens when the car is shipped.
This type of claim involves defects that are the result of a dangerous defect in the design of the vehicle or its parts. While the vehicle was probably manufactured correctly, the design of the automobile was inherently dangerous. In many cases, these types of claims deal with automobiles that have been marketing for a long period of time before their defect was discovered.
Determining Which Parties Are At Fault
If you are filing a personal injury lawsuit due to a defect in your vehicle, it is important that you accurately identify all of the parties who contributed to the injuries you have received. A lawyer can help you with that and guide your through the process.
