Fighting for Victims of Defective Vehicle Parts

Defective auto parts can lead to serious and costly car accidents and other situations that can result in serious injuries. Cars, trucks, and other vehicles have a variety of complex components, and people rely on these parts to function correctly so that drivers can remain in full control at all times. When auto parts fail, a driver may be unable to slow down or stop in time to avoid a collision, they may be unable to steer correctly, or people in a vehicle may be put at risk because safety systems failed to provide the necessary protection.

When accidents or injuries occur because of defective vehicle parts, victims will need to understand who was responsible and how they can receive compensation for their damages. A knowledgeable attorney can provide invaluable guidance and assistance in these matters. At the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III, we can investigate the causes of an accident and determine whether defective parts played a role in a collision or the injuries suffered by victims. From reviewing records of vehicle repairs to advocating for victims' rights, we can make sure all legal issues will be addressed correctly, and we will fight to make sure victims will be able to receive the compensation they deserve.

Common Defects in Auto Parts

Multiple types of parts and components may fail to function correctly. Accidents can occur because of defective parts such as:

  • Transmissions
  • Seat belts
  • Airbags
  • Brakes
  • Tires
  • Engines
  • Accelerator pedals
  • Steering mechanisms
  • Car roof and structural supports
  • Car door locks and latches
  • Handlebars of a bicycle
  • Welded parts of motorcycles
  • Drive mechanisms of vans or trucks

At first glance, a traffic accident may have seemed to be a result of driver negligence, excessive speed, following too closely, or defective roadway design. Upon closer inspection, however, an accident reconstructionist may reach the conclusion that injuries were in fact caused by a seat back that collapsed, defective tires, or other vehicle parts that broke down or did not function correctly.

Partnering With Experts to Prove the Defect

Proving that a defective vehicle part caused or exacerbated your injury is not a job for an inexperienced attorney or a firm that is unequipped to handle complex cases. Your case is likely to take time, and it may involve complexities that require close cooperation between you and your lawyer. It is also likely to require the involvement of expert witnesses such as auto design engineers. John J. Garvey, III is an experienced San Jose defective auto parts lawyer, and he has handled numerous complicated motor vehicle accident cases. When he accepts a case, it is because he is confident that he can help the injured person obtain just, ample monetary compensation.

Did a manufacturing defect such as a fatigue fracture in steel cause your car to bend or break when it should have held up during a crash? Did an accident occur because of a tire blowout, brake failure, or other parts that did not function correctly? Answering these questions is a job for an expert — and handling your injury claim is a job for an experienced attorney who has a track record of positive results.
