Automobile defects are to blame for thousands of injuries and deaths in motor vehicle accidents in this country each year. Too often car manufacturers release vehicles to the buying public without proper designs and testing to ensure driver and passenger safety.

Types of Defects
Automobiles are complex machinery in which many things can go wrong. Common auto defect cases include:
- SUV and passenger van rollovers
- Seatbelt and restraint system malfunctions
- Roof crushing
- Sudden acceleration
- Seatback collapse
- Airbag defects
- Tire defects
Causes of Defects
Defects in automobiles are often the result of the manufacturer putting their bottom line profit above the safety of the families who use their vehicles. Many vehicle defects are due to:
- Design flaws
- Poor manufacturing processes or oversight
- Faulty vehicle components
- Inadequate safety testing
When your vehicle or that of another driver in the accident was defective in some way, you may be able to hold the car manufacturing company responsible for the accident and recover compensation for your injuries from the car company.
