When Defective Car or Trucks Result in Injury, We Pursue Automobile Manufacturers for Their Liability
In our society we depend upon the manufacturers of automobiles to do so with safety in mind. We expect that they will carefully consider how to keep occupants safe in the event of a crash, and that the latest and best safety features will be included.
Sadly, this is not always the case.
In some instances, automobile manufacturers choose to save money by not including the best safety features. In other cases, car design may contribute to injuries, and may actually lead to injuries being more severe. Safety features may also malfunction.
As Michigan automobile product liability lawyers, we are experienced in representing individuals who have been injured as the result of defective cars or trucks. One of our firm partners, Wolfgang Mueller, formerly worked as an automotive design engineer at Chrysler Corporation. Mr. Mueller has undergraduate and masters degrees in mechanical engineering. This background is helpful in understanding the technical design specifications, engineering, and testing associated with automobile safety. Mr. Mueller is one of only a few attorneys in the country with this background who seeks to hold automobile manufacturers accountable for their designs.
We represent clients who have been injured throughout the State of Michigan and in several states across the nation.
Our firm carefully investigates all aspects of automobile accidents to determine whether a manufacturing design or defect may have contributed to an accident or the injuries sustained.
We often retain accident reconstructionists and technical experts to investigate car and truck crashes to determine exactly what happened to the occupants during the course of the crash. We want to know if safety devices failed to adequately protect the occupants. If it appears that a product design defect may have contributed to the case, we hire experts to assist and provide an opinion as to specific aspects of a crash.
If it appears that the car or truck was defective in a safety design, we want to understand why. Did the automotive company know about such defects? Were there better (and safer) alternatives that should have been used? Were there other similar crashes?
In an automobile defect case, we obtain documents that will provide insight as to the design of certain safety aspects that may have played a role in the accident, as well as reports concerning similar aspects or safety failures. We may depose automobile company employees so that we can learn more about potential product liability issues.
Our role as attorneys is to find out all factors involved in accident causation, and then to seek to hold accountable those responsible for their role in causing damages and injuries.
We are tenacious in seeking to uncover the contributing factors of a car or truck accident. In addition to determining whether a defective product played a role in the accident, we also look to others who may be at fault, including other drivers and those responsible for roadway maintenance.
Once we have identified all of the parties who we believe their responsibility, it is our role to seek to hold each of these parties accountable for their share of the damages.
