Fairfield County Defective Vehicle Lawyer

Tire blowouts, brake failure, airbags that injure the occupants, seatbelts that don't protect a driver or passenger: Any of these cases may be the result of a defect.

Defectively designed cars and parts pose a serious, immediate safety risk to the occupants of the car and anyone sharing the road with that vehicle. While most accidents are caused by driver error, some accidents are linked to faulty designs. The vehicle's manufacturer may be liable. Often, a vehicle recall is announced when a defect is discovered. But sometimes these recalls come after people have been seriously injured or killed. Wrongful death accidents can happen on any of Fairfield County's busy roads, from Bridgeport to Stamford and along the Gold Coast.

What are examples of vehicle defects? The list is long and distressing, but the following is a sample of some of the more common defective vehicle accidents:

  • Roof crush accidents in SUV rollovers
  • Ignition switch failures (GM recently recalled vehicles affected by defective ignition switches)
  • Accelerator pedals (Toyota recently recalled vehicle with pedals that stick and cause sudden acceleration)
  • Defective tires that blow out or fall off a vehicle
  • Brakes that fail to safely stop a vehicle
  • Seatbelts that fail to unlatch
  • Airbags that deploy without warning
