Examples of defective car parts

Faulty automobile parts can cause a wide range of motor vehicle accidents. Unfortunately, these crashes can happen anywhere and to anyone—without any warning. A few of the more common forms of car part defects include:

  • Bad tires
  • Ineffective air bags
  • Faulty brakes
  • Faulty wiring
  • Electrical problems
  • Accelerator or braking issues
  • Rollover risk

With a bad car part, there are endless issues which pose serious risks. If you or a loved one was affected by a faulty auto part, you have options for pursuing compensation.

Who can be held responsible?

Determining who is at fault is not always easy in these types of cases. There are a few factors to consider:

  • Was it a design flaw or manufacturing error?
  • Is the car manufacturer or parts manufacturer at fault?
  • Did the car dealer know about the defect?
  • Was a negligent mechanic partially to blame?
  • What middlemen or distributors were involved?
  • Did you purchase the car new or used?

Once you retain an attorney from Delius & McKenzie, PLLC, we launch an investigation to help prove who is to blame for your injuries and damages, using all of our resources and faculties to develop a case that gets you the results you need.

Recalls and class action lawsuits

In some cases, many vehicle owners experience the same issue with a certain line of cars. Often, these cars and parts get recalled off the market after several people have already gotten hurt. If you are one of many individuals harmed by the same defective auto part, like exploding Takata airbags or GM’s faulty ignition switches, you may be able to file a class action lawsuit against the vehicle manufacturer. The Law Office of Bryan E. Delius has the capabilities and experience to offer representation in these complex cases.
