Alabama Auto Attorney

Automobiles, motor vehicles, cars, and trucks are a big part of our life. We spend many hours a week going to work, school, the store, doctor’s appointments, etc. It is challenging to live without any transportation these days. While we depend on these vehicles every day of our lives, these large, heavy, powerful, and complex machines can prove very problematic when they don’t function as they should, or worse, they can cause severe injury and death.

Defective Automobile Parts Cause Death and Injury

Motor vehicle accidents are far too commonplace, but our cars are much safer today than they were many years ago. Why? Because they can be designed to protect their occupants should an accident occur. 

 

Unfortunately, there are still motor vehicles on the market which have design flaws or manufacturing defects that allow an occupant to sustain greater injuries in the event of an accident than they should, or the defective automobile could be the cause of the accident.  Such defects can occur with the following:

  • Airbags

  • Seatbelts

  • Door latches

  • Crumple zones

  • Roofs

  • Seats

  • Anti-lock brakes

  • Tires

  • Brakes

  • Transmissions

  • Engine

  • Ignition systems

  • Computer controls (e.g. cruise control, lane change warning, automatic braking)

  • Fuel pumps

  • Gas tanks

 

These cases are treated like other defective product cases, with which the attorneys at Jinks, Crow & Dickson are very experienced.

Car Accidents May Involve Defective Product

What may appear at first blush to be a simple automobile accident actually may involve a defective productThat defective product may be on the car or part of the highway system, such as the roadway surface, striping, shoulder, signs, signals, guardrails, etc.

 

An experienced attorney will thoroughly investigate all facets of a car accident, especially a single-vehicle accident, to determine what may have caused the accident and the injuries or deaths which resulted.
