Most people have been involved in at least one car accident in their lives. You may even be aware that auto accidents are fairly common. But what you may not realize is that not all car accidents are caused by negligent drivers. Sometimes, car accidents are caused by vehicle manufacturers. A poorly designed car or motorcycle can be a ticking time bomb waiting to malfunction at any moment.
Following are examples of automotive defects:
Defective airbags: Many vehicles today have front, side and rear airbags. These devices deploy and cushion passengers in the event of a crash. If an airbag fails to deploy, or deploys prematurely, it can cause serious injury.
Defective seatbelts: Seatbelts are designed to save lives. Unfortunately, if they are defective, they may fail to lock. Additionally, seatbelts that suddenly disengage can lead to serious injury if an accident occurs.
Defective tires: If your vehicle has expired or defective tires, you may lose control of your vehicle and collide with another driver or fixed object.
