There are several dozens of items that keep our cars, trucks and even other vehicles functioning properly and safely. We trust that they will perform their roles without placing us in jeopardy. Unfortunately, as seen by the many recalls every year, there are some auto parts that fail to keep drivers protected and can pose a potential threat to their safety.
Some of the defective auto products may include the following:
- Ignition switches.
- Body structure that does stand up to impact.
- Weight issues.
- Parts that may cause a fire.
- And so much more…
Auto manufacturers have a duty to protect their passengers from potential dangers. Failing to advise customers of known issues with a vehicle can actually be considered negligence and may be grounds for an auto liability claim in the event of accidents resulting from the defect. Even a seemingly minor issue with a vehicle part could lead to an auto accident on the road or may even increase the damage resulting from an incident. For example, car bodies are required to withstand a certain level of impact in order to protect passengers in the case of a collision. The manufacturing company would then be liable if they created cars with bodies not in compliance with the regulations.
In the end, there are millions of Americans who have faced the recall of their vehicle in the past few years and are even more at risk due to defective products.
