Common Automobile Defects
Getting behind the wheel of a car is a common, everyday occurrence for millions of people. However, very few of them stop to consider how cars are complex pieces of machinery, built from a multitude of parts and components. With so many parts going in to the construction of any given automobile, there’s a huge chance that defective parts occasionally slip through the cracks.
There are many ways an automobile can be defective. Some of the most common defects include airbags that do not deploy properly, seat belts that don’t lock up the way they should, brakes that fail to stop the vehicle, and tires that blow out. These all present clear dangers.
One of the worst results of defective automobiles is that they can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle and get into an accident, which can cause serious injuries to the driver or other people on the road.
Accidents that are caused by defective automobile components can be blamed on the car’s manufacturer. A car defect injury lawyer can help people who have lived through such accidents make a claim for injury compensation.
