Atlanta Defective Car Part Attorney
Car Accident Lawyers Serving Atlanta, GA
When a car part is defective or does not function properly,
serious injury or
death can result. Vehicle defects can occur when the design of the vehicle is
faulty or when the materials used during manufacturing are faulty. One
of the main
reasons for accidents related to defective equipment is that companies do not spend the money
required to produce safe equipment. Instead, they cut costs on research
and development in order to increase their bottom line.
Air bags, brakes, and seat belts can all be defective if they are not designed,
manufactured or installed properly. This is one of the reasons why it
is critically important that you enlist the help of an Atlanta personal
injury attorney when you or your loved ones are injured in a car accident
of any kind.

Types of Defective Car Equipment
If you were sold an eight-year-old tire as new and were injured in an
accident because the tire blew out, you may be able to hold the tire retailer
responsible for your pain and suffering. Tire tread separation is another
type of tire defect that can lead to rollover accidents because of a sudden
tire blowout. Tires separate when there is poor bonding of the rubber
to the steel belt during the manufacturing process. Misplaced tires can
also lead to a car accident because of hydroplaning or other accidents.
Roof crush injuries are often the result of a rollover accident and can
result in devastating injuries to the vehicle's occupants. The metal
from the roof and the glass from the windshield can both be forced inward
toward the vehicle's occupants, and head injuries, brain injuries,
spinal cord injuries, fractures and deep cuts can happen as a result.
Faulty brakes can affect more than just the driver and passenger of the
vehicle; they can also endanger other drivers or pedestrians nearby if
the driver of the faulty car is unable to reduce speed or stop the vehicle.
There are numerous reasons why your brakes may fail, including faulty
design, faulty installation, leaking or clogged brake lines, or weak brake
shoes or pads.
