Defective Vehicles May Have Malfunctioning Safety Features, Like Seat Belts and Airbags
An increasing number of accidents are caused by defective vehicles. Poor vehicle design or faulty parts, such as defective seat belts or airbags, can have catastrophic consequences. Many car accidents have been traced back to fuel system failure and defective tires. A faulty tire can result in a blowout, leading to an SUV rollover accident.
A Defective Vehicle Accident May Entitle You to Compensation

Defective Vehicle Recalls
When a major car maker produces a defective automobile, the public tends to notice. Some SUVs with design defects have resulted in deadly rollover accidents. In some cases, the parts manufacturer may have introduced a defective product. We have seen cases of tread separation in tires, leading to lawsuits against the tire maker.
Defective vehicle cases may involve:
- Malfunctioning seat belts
- Malfunctioning airbags
- Exploding gas tanks
- Brake defects
- Acceleration defects
- Automobile recalls
- Rollover or roof-crush accidents
- Ejection of passengers or driver
