Injured in an Accident Caused by an Auto Defect?
Despite available technology, many people are injured every year when defects in their cars cause accidents or make injuries worse in a crash or rollover. Auto manufacturers have a responsibility to design and manufacture safe vehicles, but holding them accountable for severe injuries or death is no small task.
At Gerash Steiner & Blanton, P.C., we have the resources and experience necessary for these types of difficult cases. Our Denver personal injury lawyers have been involved with product liability lawsuits against large automakers over defects in their vehicles. We will investigate flaws such as bad design, manufacturing defects, regulatory violations, failure to fully test vehicle safety, and failure to make use of available technology.
Auto Defect Cases We Handle
- Faulty brakes
- SUV defects causing rollover
- Defective seat belts
- Air bag defects
- Seat back failure
- Tire blowouts / tread separation
These accidents often result in serious injuries, including head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, facial injuries, and disabling whiplash (soft tissue damage to the neck and back). Victims of auto defects have the right to pursue financial compensation in a personal injury claim.
SUV Rollovers Caused by Defective Automobiles
The top-heavy design of sport utility vehicles (SUVs) makes them inherently more likely to tip and roll. In response, the automobile industry developed electronic counter-steering and traction technologies. Unfortunately, many manufacturers do not employ this expensive stabilization technology in all of their SUVs. Another design defect common to many SUVs involves crashworthiness: oftentimes, the roof supports fail during rollover crashes, causing critical injuries to the passengers.
We at Gerash Steiner & Blanton, P.C. work with expert engineers and professional accident investigators. This enables us to gather and analyze evidence from car accident scenes and inspect the wreckage for vehicle defects. Our lawyers also have access to top automotive design experts who can testify that the vehicle in question did not meet federal safety standards or contained inherent design or manufacturing flaws.
