Our Skilled Fort Lauderdale Automobile Defect Attorneys Can Help.

When seeing a car accident on the road, or even being involved in one, it is easy to assume that one of the drivers was at fault. For example, a driver may speed through a red light and crash into another vehicle. To many, it would be clear that the driver that ran the light was at fault for the crash. However, that is not always the case.

Automobile defects also often result in car crashes and when this is the case, it is not always easy to determine the cause. It is for this reason that any time you are in an accident, it is critical to speak to a Fort Lauderdale automobile defect lawyer that can identify the cause of the crash.

Our Fort Lauderdale Automobile Defect Lawyer Explains Manufacturer Liability

In Florida, manufacturers as well as anyone else who has contributed to the manufacturing process, have a duty to make sure the products they create are not defective and are relatively safe to use for consumers. Manufacturers of vehicles and vehicle parts are not immune from this law. Any time defective auto parts cause injury or death, manufacturers can be held strictly liable. Strict liability means you do not have to prove the manufacturer was negligent. You must only show a part was defective and that you suffered injury as a result.

Manufacturers can be held strictly liable for three types of auto defects. These are as follows:

  • Design defects: A design defect occurs before the auto part is actually created, during the design process. These types of defects include a poor roof design that could easily crush occupants, engine or fuel tanks that are negligently placed, and poor crashworthiness.
  • Manufacturing defects: These defects occur during the manufacturing process. These defects include faulty materials being used and mistakes being made on the assembly line.
  • Failure to warn: Motor vehicles are somewhat dangerous by nature, and manufacturers have a duty to warn of those dangers. For example, manufacturers should provide full instructions on how to use the most important systems of the car, such as the braking and lighting systems, and warn of the dangers of not using these.

A lawyer can identify the type of defect that resulted in an accident, and will know how to hold manufacturers liable.

Our Fort Lauderdale Automobile Defect Lawyer Explains the Common Types of Faulty Parts

All auto parts are important and when one is faulty, it can result in a serious accident. However, there are some types of faulty parts that are more commonly seen in accident claims than others. These include:

  • Tires
  • Brakes
  • Seat belts
  • Car seats
  • Airbags
  • Design that leads to increased risk of a vehicle rollover

It is essential to determine what part of the car was faulty and caused a crash, as many different manufacturers often provide manufacturers with vehicle parts.
