Defective Vehicles And Car Accidents Every Move Matters

Orlando Defective Vehicle Accident Attorney

Car accidents are usually caused by driver distraction or road conditions. However, many car accidents have been the result of defective vehicles. Car manufacturers are required by law to test their vehicles before mass distribution of the vehicle. Many vehicles flood the markets with defective parts that cause accidents.

An attorney who is an experienced civil trial attorney and a medical doctor can help to determine if your car accident was caused by a defective part. By contacting Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D., you can schedule a consultation to discuss your accident and get the legal help you need.

DEFECTIVE SUVS AND ROLLOVERS

SUVs are popular family vehicles that are prone to rollover accidents. SUV rollover accidents cause serious personal injury and sometimes death because of the defective nature of the vehicle. SUVs are manufactured for passenger vehicle use without the much-needed roll bar to protect passengers. Without the roll bar, the roof of the SUV is not supported and is easily crushed in an accident.

SUVs have a higher center of gravity and are narrower than most passenger vehicles. This combination creates a recipe for disaster when a driver has to make a defensive move and abruptly steer the vehicle to avoid an accident. The abrupt movement will cause the SUV to easily roll and harm the passengers inside.

A vehicle with a strong roof, lower center of gravity, and wider frame will not cause a roll over accidents in most scenarios.

DEFECTIVE VEHICLE PRODUCTS

There are many common vehicle defects that cause car accidents:

  • Defective safety equipment such as seat restraints and airbags
  • Defective tires
  • Poorly designed vehicle frames
  • Defective Brakes
  • Faulty fuel valves

Safety equipment is designed to help protect the passengers of vehicles and lessen the severity of injuries in case of a car accident. When a seatbelt fails to hold a passenger in his or her seat or if an airbag fails to deploy, the passenger may suffer preventable injuries. Because these injuries would have been prevented and because the safety equipment was defective, the manufacturer may be at fault.

Please contact Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D., for a free consultation if you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident in Orlando, Winter Park or anywhere in Florida.
