There are times when motor vehicle accidents occur for seemingly no reason at all. Brakes fail for an instant, even when the roads are not icy or slick. A turn signal is properly enabled, yet witnesses insist they did not see it activated before a driver changed lanes. A car plows into a stationary object but its airbags do not inflate. It is at times like these that an experienced Wytheville, VA car accident lawyer may question whether an accident occurred due to a defect in one of the vehicles involved in the crash.
When Car Defects Cause Harm
Human and mechanical error lead to product defects on a startlingly regular basis. Unfortunately, every product on the market could potentially be defective in some way. Cars, trucks, motorcycles and other means of transport are not immune from the potential for product defects. Frustratingly, many defects are not discovered until after they have led to injurious accidents. Even then, many accidents may need to occur before the government and/or the manufacturer may opt to order a recall. In the meantime, a number of individuals may be injured or killed before those defects are confirmed.
If you have been involved in an accident and something seems “off” or you cannot explain why the collision occurred in the way it did, you may benefit from speaking with an experienced Wytheville, VA car accident lawyer today. If it turns out that a defect did contribute to your crash, you may be able to sue the manufacturer of the car and/or the retailer of the car. You may similarly be able to sue the manufacturer of the defective product itself. Such cases tend to be complex, but an experienced Wytheville, VA car accident lawyer can handle the legal “heavy lifting” on your behalf.
