Pursuing a products liability claim against an auto manufacturer

Earlier this week, we wrote about a tragic accident in Roseville, California, last month in which a vehicle that was in park rolled over the driver as she was unloading something out of the back seat.

We concluded the post by saying that an investigation is needed to determine what caused the vehicle to move even though it was in park and on flat ground. We stated that if a defect was responsible for the incident, the woman's family may be able to pursue a products liability claim against the vehicle's manufacturer. 

Today, we are going to talk a little more about what a products liability claim against an auto manufacturer entails. When a person is seriously injured or killed because of a vehicle's defective design or manufacturing, the victim or the victim's family may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, vehicle repair costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Unfortunately, though, pursuing a products liability claim against an auto manufacturer is no easy task. It takes a skilled and experienced personal injury lawyer to hold auto manufacturers liable for their negligent actions. Oftentimes, an in-depth investigation is needed and experts in the field must provide testimony to show that the vehicle was, in fact, defective.

Our firm has been representing accident victims and their families in products liability lawsuits against auto manufacturers for many years and we know how to explore every potential avenue for compensation after one of these devastating accidents occurs. We assist victims in accidents involving defective cars, trucks, boats and ATVs.
