Auto Defect Attorney

Auto Defects and Crashworthiness

The auto defect attorneys at Injury Law Partners are driven to hold automakers accountable. Our lawyers leave no stone unturned to prove that certain accidents are primarily caused by design flaws, manufacturing defects, or failures to provide proper warnings or instructions.

Automakers take decades developing, testing and marketing cars to generate enormous profits. We take on the automotive giants to maximize compensation for victims and their families when it’s clear that a car, truck or commercial vehicle would and should have been more safely designed. Our compassionate legal team will handle every aspect of your auto defect case while you focus on healing.

Why Hire an Auto Defect Attorney from Injury Law Partners?

Specialized Expertise and In-Depth Knowledge of Auto Defect Laws

Safety is not optional equipment. Our auto defect lawyers specialize in handling cases related to auto defects and crashworthiness. With years of experience and in-depth knowledge of the standards, testing protocols, and industry offerings, our team is well-equipped to represent your best interests effectively. Navigating the legal landscape of auto defect cases can be challenging. Governmental agencies like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issue Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) to reduce crashes and promote driver and passenger safety and industry groups like the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) perform crash testing to highlight areas for car safety improvement.  Our attorneys have a deep understanding of these standards and the laws and regulations governing vehicle safety, ensuring that you receive guidance and representation tailored to your situation.

Personalized Approach

Every auto defect case is unique, and we believe in a personalized approach to each one. Our lawyers will work closely with you to understand the specifics of your situation and craft a legal strategy that meets your needs.

Proven Track Record

Our auto defect lawyers have secured substantial recoveries during their careers for clients injured as a result of defective vehicles.* We consistently strive to exceed expectations, helping our clients regain their lives after suffering from auto defect related incidents.

Comprehensive Auto Defect Services

Our personal injury lawyers offer a wide range of legal services to support victims of defectively designed and manufactured cars, trucks, and commercial vehicles. From initial investigation through litigation and trial, we’re here to provide the assistance that you need throughout your journey to recovery.

Investigation of Auto Defect Cases

Every car has a story to tell and gathering evidence early is crucial to successfully developing an auto defect case. Our lawyers conduct comprehensive investigations, collecting digital data from a car’s on-board computer systems, vital documentation and collaborating with experts to help establish that a properly and safely designed car, truck, or commercial vehicle would have prevented or dramatically reduced the likelihood of a crash or significant injuries.

Determining Liability in Auto Defect Cases

Establishing liability is a complex aspect of auto defect cases. Our attorneys work diligently to assess who is at fault, whether it’s the vehicle manufacturer, a component supplier, maintenance provider, after-market vendor or any other party, and hold them accountable.

Dealing with Insurance Companies

Navigating insurance companies or complex corporate risk management department can be daunting. Our personal injury lawyers handle all communication, investigation and litigation with insurance companies and corporate risk managers, ensuring your rights are protected.

Calculating Damages Specific to Auto Defects

Auto defects can lead to various expenses, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our attorneys meticulously evaluate and present the damages that you’ve suffered to ensure that your story is most effectively told.
