San Jose Aftermarket Vehicle Modifications Attorneys

California Accident Lawyer for Aftermarket Vehicle Modifications

Any time a vehicle is worked on after leaving the original manufacturer, it is considered an aftermarket vehicle modification. Unfortunately, there are many instances in which aftermarket modifications are not completed properly. This may include failing to comply with safety standards, inadequate quality testing, and other poor service practices.

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, whether it involved a car, truck, bus, or limousine, it is imperative that your case be reviewed by an expert who can determine whether there were faulty aftermarket modifications conducted on the vehicle involved in your accident. At the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III, we regularly work with experts who perform these types of assessments, and we help our clients take the correct steps to make sure the causes of an accident can be identified correctly. By determining whether improper aftermarket modifications were a factor in an accident, we can ensure that all responsible parties will be held accountable for their negligent actions.

Some Cars Are Red Flags

Certain vehicles are more likely than others to have gone through multiple aftermarket vehicle modifications. These include older cars, limousines, recreational vehicles, and handicapped-accessible vehicles. These types of vehicles are often chopped apart, stretched, and even spliced back together. The modifications made to these vehicles may lead to serious problems or defects, such as:

  • Inadequate protection for a vehicle's occupants, such as a lack of seat belts or airbags
  • Blind spots that affect a driver's ability to see what is happening around them
  • Changes in tire air pressure requirements, which may lead to a loss of traction if tires are underinflated or tire blowouts when overinflation has occurred
  • Faulty/inadequate carbon monoxide detectors that may cause harm to a vehicle's occupants
  • Improper safeguards for gas lines or faulty electrical wiring, which could lead to fires and burn injuries
  • Inadequate suspension, which could cause a driver to lose control of a vehicle
  • Disregard for manufacturer specifications and safety standards
