Milwaukee Automobile Defects Attorney

A large number of car accidents are caused by errors on the part of drivers. However, accidents may be caused or worsened because of defects in the overall design of the vehicle. If someone becomes injured in an accident, they may be able to hold the designer, manufacturer, or distributor of the vehicle responsible for their losses if the accident was caused by a defective or malfunctioning part.

If you have been harmed by a defective motor vehicle, you may be eligible for receiving compensation for your medical bills and other losses.

Types of Auto Defects

Often, defects in a particular type of vehicle are exclusive to that make and model. The types of defects most often reported include problems with a vehicle’s:

  • General design: A vehicle with a faulty structure may roll over during an accident or may cause further injury to occupants during a car accident.
  • Accelerator or brakes: A driver may lose control of the vehicle and crash if an accelerator or brake system malfunctions.
  • Safety features: An airbag or a seatbelt may malfunction and cause injury to occupants.
  • Fuel tank: Defective or poorly-placed fuel tanks run the risk of catching fire or exploding during a crash.
  • Tires: Tires may lose their treads or easily flatten, causing rollovers or other accidents.

It is the responsibility of the car company to design vehicles that do not pose additional safety risks to drivers and their passengers. Sadly, many car companies tend to cut corners to maximize profits while ignoring the needs of their customers. Our Milwaukee car defect lawyers are committed to pursuing justice on behalf of victims of such errors.
