Manufacturing Car Defects And Accidents: Your Legal Rights

Being involved in a commercial vehicle accident that experienced manufacturing car defects through no fault of your own can feel like an overwhelming and confusing event. Not only do you have your own physical shock and the damage caused to you and your own vehicle but now you’ve got to start legal proceedings and have no idea where to start.

Whilst the most common causes of vehicle collisions in the state of Arizona include drunk drivers and lack of concentration at the wheel, and yet manufacturing car defects and their related accidents are more common than you think! Manufacturing accidents are often shocking and unexpected by both the driver of the commercial vehicle and the person they are involved in the accident with.

The Three Types of Manufacturing Car Defects Recognized in Arizona Law

There are three types of defected products in vehicles that the law in the state of Arizona recognizes and when an auto accident lawyer can find any of the following faults at play to cause an accident, the manufacturer can be held financially responsible for your injuries as well as any other losses. These are;

Design defects: This is where the product’s design causes it to be unreasonably dangerous, for example, a seatbelt fails to work properly or defective tires that fail to help the vehicle stop

Manufacturing car defects: This is where a problem or mistake in the manufacturing process causes a product to become unsafe. An example is a defective engine or part of a vehicle that is added at the point of it being made such as an exhaust. 

A failure to warn: This occurs when the manufacturer fails to provide adequate notice of safety risks associated with the proper use of the product. This can be a warning light or even a public notice if they’ve discovered an error with a product and failed to issue a recall for it.

It may be a rather obvious fault that caused your manufacturing car defects accident such as tires bursting or even something falling off, instantly indicating something is wrong with your vehicle. Or it could be something hidden that caused it. 

Your rights after Manufacturing Car Defects Accidents

An experienced attorney will thoroughly investigate every aspect of your vehicle before identifying what kind of manufacturing defaults were at play. If they are successful in finding fault with your vehicle that wasn’t spotted before and was the reason you have had your accident, they will start to build your case against the manufacturer because of the manufacturing car defects.

Our team of experienced lawyers will then work with every step of the way to defend your case where a vehicle has malfunctioned and caused you to have an accident. Taking on a large manufacturer may feel overwhelming but it’s important to rely on your attorney as you are within your rights in the state of Arizona to defend a manufacturing car defect case.

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

What can I say about the Thompson Law Firm? They are AMAZING!! It’s never fun when you need an accident lawyer because you are pretty much in a bad place. Shane and the staff have been wonderful, kept me informed at every step of this process. I would recommend Thompson Law Firm to anyone, in fact, I have referred several friends already!! Thank you Thompson Law Firm for everything you did for me!!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
