Milwaukee Design Defect Lawyers

In the United States, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is the branch of the federal government which regulates motor vehicle safety standards, which car manufacturers must meet before allowing consumers to buy their vehicles. Unfortunately, companies do not always adhere to these guidelines and release vehicles with inherent safety hazards in their design, which can lead to unavoidable accidents and injuries.

If a car’s defective design caused you to suffer an injury from an accident, a Milwaukee design defect attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® can help you determine if the associated manufacturer can be held liable for your losses. Speak with a knowledgeable member of our staff today at (414) 271-0900.

Types of Design Defects

A design defect can pose a significant safety hazard to a driver even if the vehicle was manufactured without error, as the way the car normally functions is in itself dangerous. Following are a few examples of design defects:

  • Vehicle accelerates uncontrollably when it reaches a certain speed
  • Vehicle combusts when it is in an accident
  • Vehicle is likely to rollover in an accident
  • Frame is too weak to protect passengers in the event of an accident

Design defects are difficult to spot and are very likely to cause accidents and severe injuries, for which the associated manufacturer may be held accountable.
