Injured In An Accident?

When car crashes lead to product liability claims

On Behalf of | Nov 15, 2018 | Products Liability |

If you have recently been involved in a car accident, it is likely that you have felt pressure to establish fault in order to proceed with the insurance process. In the vast majority of car accident cases, one party or multiple parties are seen to be at fault for the occurrence of the accident.

However, sometimes a car accident is not the fault of anyone at the scene. This could be because the accident was caused by extreme weather conditions or because there was a fault with the vehicle that you were driving.

How can I prove that there was a fault with the car I was driving at the time of the crash?

If you believe that your car crash was caused by a fault with your vehicle, it is important that you are able to prove this. You can do this by having your car assessed after the incident took place. You should also make sure to take photos of the damage so that it can be analyzed.

How do I know if I can make a product liability claim?

It is likely that you will be able to make a successful product liability claim if you can show that a defect in the vehicle was unreasonably dangerous. This dangerous defect could have come about in several ways, such as through an error during manufacturing, designing or shipping.

When should I take action?

It is important that you do not delay taking action after a car accident to establish the true cause. It is also vital that you read about the law when doing this.
