Common Auto Defects

Even though many automobile plants have shut down over the past five years, there were still almost 60 million cars produced around the world in 2010. The automobile industry is one of the largest industries in the United States, as hundreds of thousands of vehicles come off the assembly line every day. Automobiles are complicated machines with multiple moving parts that all must work properly in order for a vehicle to run safely. Unfortunately, devastating accidents can occur when automobiles are defective or have any defective parts.

Automobile manufacturers are responsible for producing reliable products that will not cause harm to customers. If you or someone you know has been in an accident caused by an automotive defect, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

  • Faulty brakes
  • Improper design leading to rollovers
  • Defective tires
  • Defective gas tanks, leading to explosions
