Auto Product Liability – Were Safer Alternatives Available?

Most of us have heard about cases in which a manufacturer could have paid a very small additional amount (perhaps a couple of dollars) for a better part which would have prevented injury.   Unfortunately, these cost-saving decisions sometimes result in severe injuries and death.   In an accident involving a defective product, it’s important to understand what options a manufacturer may have had to use a safer product.

When we investigate accidents, we sometimes find that a very small part contributed to significant damages and injuries.  For instance, a seat belt may not have properly protected an occupant because a small part in the seat belt failed.  Car and truck accident injury victims, however, pay dearly for these decisions, sometimes even with their lives.

At trial, if the facts exist, we want to show that a manufacturer could have paid a little more money for vehicle safety, but instead consciously disregarded such costs in favor of higher profits.  To make these claims, we need to investigate to find out what the manufacturer knew about the particular safety or product at hand, and whether the manufacturer also knew about safer alternatives.

How We Handle Defective Auto Product Liability Cases

As a society, we depend upon auto manufacturers to do the right thing in terms of keeping us safe when they build cars, trucks, and other vehicles.  When they choose profits over lives and injuries, they must be held accountable to the fullest extent possible so that they have an incentive not to make poor choices in the future.

Our firm believes strongly in working to obtain for our clients the maximum amount of damages possible against manufacturers who provide defective products, particularly when they make conscious choices to put profit over people.

If you have been injured, or a family member has been killed, please call me as soon as practical.  I will work tireless on your case in seeking to obtain for you the best results possible.  Our firm will work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we will only be entitled to fees if we win for you.
