Champaign Mechanical Defects/Malfunctions Lawyers
Car accidents are a daily occurrence in every city and every state in the country. With an estimated six million crashes every year, 90 people lose their life every single day in the United States due to injuries suffered in a car accident. And while driver error is one of the most common causes of car accidents, a number of accidents happen because of mechanical or manufacturing defects. These types of accidents can be especially painful and hard to reconcile because they happen at no fault of the driver, and are instead caused by negligent and reckless car manufacturers. And whether the manufacturer was aware of the problem or not before releasing the vehicle to the market, you can still take legal action and hold these companies liable.
It seems that every few months, another major automobile manufacturer is in the news issuing a recall to millions of vehicles for a wide variety of manufacturing defects and malfunctions. From faulty ignition switches to brakes that stick or even airbags that don’t deploy, when car companies build and distribute faulty automobiles, the consequences for the owners can be serious and even deadly. And while any product defect can lead to a potentially dangerous situation, the stakes are highest with automobile defects, especially when they happen at high speeds on highways.

Common Types of Auto Defects/Malfunctions
Taking legal action against car manufacturers can be a complicated and involved process. Dealing with a major car manufacturer’s legal team or insurance company requires extensive preparation and experience; the experience you can only get with an automobile defect attorney who knows how to navigate these potentially turbulent waters. The first step is determining that a defective auto part caused your car accident due to the manufacturer’s negligence.
When auto parts fail or malfunction and lead to an accident, drivers can suffer catastrophic or life-changing injuries that impact every part of their day-to-day existence as well as their future. These injuries can be amplified when defects affect auto parts like seatbelts or airbags that are intended to protect drivers and passengers. You may be eligible for a financial reward if you were injured in an accident for any of the following:
- Faulty ignition switches that turn the vehicle off while driving
- Brake malfunction or failure
- Child seat malfunction
- Loss of power steering
- Faulty seat belts
- Airbags that fail to deploy or deploy without an accident
- Tire defects or blowouts
- Heated seat defects
- Electrical system defects
Any of these defects and malfunctions can lead to serious injury, or in some cases even death, in the event of an accident. You may be able to pursue more damages if manufacturers knew about the defect and didn’t respond in the appropriate amount of time, thereby knowingly keeping defective vehicles on the road and putting lives in danger.
If you have suffered traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, internal damage, or disfigurement in an accident, you may be facing years of medical attention and rehabilitation to make you feel completely well. In serious cases, victims may require multiple surgeries and a lifetime of medical care. By taking legal action you can recover financial compensation to pay for all current and future medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
