If you or a loved one has been injured, or a family member killed because of a defective vehicle, call the attorneys at Kramer Law. Our law firm represents consumers in automobile and motorcycle product liability claims throughout Central Florida. We have the experience and resources necessary to litigate these cases against the nation’s largest auto manufacturers.

Car manufacturers have a duty to provide vehicles that are free from defects and safety hazards that can injure drivers and passengers. When a car manufacturer neglects safety standards or takes shortcuts, they place individuals and their families at risk of crippling injuries and loss of life.

Accidents involving defective vehicles, including their component parts and tires, can be especially troubling. A driver may be driving safely and obey all traffic laws only to suddenly lose control of the vehicle because of a faulty part or design flaw. A traffic accident that would normally cause minor injuries can result in serious injury or death.

If a vehicle defect has caused you harm, you have a right to hold the manufacturer legally responsible for your injuries and financial losses associated with the accident. Call us at 855-Kramer-Now (855-572-6376) to arrange for a free initial consultation and learn how we can immediately begin to help you.

Types of Vehicle Defects

Injuries that appear to have been caused by one factor, such as driver error, may actually be caused or exacerbated by a defective vehicle or part. Dangerous automotive defects that have led to major recalls or serious accidents include:

  • Faulty braking systems
  • Engine failure and stalling
  • Defective seatbelts
  • Seat backs that collapse in a collision
  • Leaking fuel lines and gas tank defects
  • Defective tires – detreading and blowouts
  • Windows that blow out in a crash, allowing ejection of occupants
  • Airbags that deploy at the wrong time or not at all
  • Collapsed roof in a rollover accident and other weaknesses with the structure of the vehicle
  • Malfunctioning motorcycle brake pads
  • Defects in door locks and latches and defective child safety locks
  • Unintended acceleration
  • SUVs, passenger vans, and other vehicles prone to rollovers
  • Defective motorcycle handlebars

It does not matter when the defect began, whether during the design or manufacturing stage or during shipment or delivery of the product.

Vehicle Defect Dangers Exposed

Florida laws relating to defective products are complex. Kramer Law will explain this legislation to you in straightforward, clear terms and show you how we will represent your case. As our attorneys evaluate your case, we will determine which of the following liability principles may apply to your case:

  • “Strict Liability” – The injured party does not have to prove if the manufacturer or seller was negligent, but only that the product was not safe.
  • Breach of an Express or Implied Warranty – The injured party must prove that a warranty was indeed breached as a result of error in the vehicle’s design or that components were not properly installed. An experienced Kramer Law attorney will review all documents pertaining to the vehicle’s initial sales transaction, as it is not uncommon for companies to disclaim all warranties during the transaction.
  • Negligence – The injured party must prove that the vehicle or product was not manufactured according to the required specifications or that the product was defective, installed incorrectly, or marketed improperly.

How Crashworthiness Affects Car and Truck Accident Injuries

“Crashworthiness” is an element in each of these theories of liability. Crashworthiness can be broadly defined as a vehicle’s integrity to protect its occupants in the event of a collision through its structure and restraint devices.

A crashworthy structure means a strong and safe compartment for the occupant, crumple zones to absorb the impact of a serious crash, side structure that can handle the impact of a collision, and a strong roof that does not cave in or collapse in a rollover. Proper restraint devices are safety features such as seatbelts, airbags, and door locks.
