Vehicle Defects | Defective Car Parts

For the past several years, unprecedented numbers of vehicle safety recalls have been issued annually in this country. In 2016 alone, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), there were 53,200,000 passenger vehicles recalled because of defects in their design or because of a defective car part.

If you or a family member has been in an accident caused by an automotive defect, we can help you fight for your rights against the manufacturer and force them to compensate you for your injuries and losses. The law limits the amount of time that a claim or lawsuit can be pursued.

If the deadline passes, you’ll be barred from seeking compensation. We know your rights under the law and can help you gain the compensation you deserve.

The Department of Transportation warns that while these motor vehicle recalls are at extraordinary levels, there are a significant number of vehicles with known defects and dangers that are never repaired. According to DOT, 25% of recalled vehicles are never fixed, which “…puts you, your passengers, and others on the road at risk.”

With these numbers, we can estimate that 13,300,000 vehicles remain dangerous and driven on the roads today as recalled and unrepaired vehicle recalls from 2016 alone.

Millions of Defective Vehicles on the Road Today

Each day, Texans get behind the wheel trusting their vehicles to operate properly as well as all the other cars, trucks, SUVs, minivans, and commercial trucks and buses that will share their roadway as they drive to work, school, or home.

Sadly, all too many Texans (as well as victims across the country) are seriously hurt or killed in car accidents caused by known risks.

Wigington Rumley Dunn & Blair LLP is leading the fight to protect consumers from these poorly designed products and other automotive defects.

Fighting For Justice against Defective Vehicle Accidents

Tragic accidents caused by automakers’ defective vehicles or flawed vehicle parts have killed their victims in preventable accidents caused by rollovers, gas tank fires, tire failures, roof crush, seat failure, safety belt failure, deadly airbag defects, door latch defects, safety glass failures, automated technology defects, or uncontrollable acceleration.

Defects in the manufacturing process, defects in the design itself, or failure to warn of a known defect are all causes for these needless fatalities. Legally, these form the basis of a legal cause of action for the accident victim and his loved ones, based upon strict liability laws, or those of express or implied warranty. Both state and federal law may provide avenues for claims to be made against those responsible for the victim’s injuries.

Our firm’s experience in advocating for victims of defective car parts and defectively designed vehicles is extensive.

The Danger of Defectively Designed Vehicles and Defective Car Parts

We know that a flaw in the design, manufacture, repair, or installation of any type of vehicle or automotive part can be deadly. Lives are lost because of a flaw that should never have been allowed into the marketplace. This is wrong.

Our pursuit of these cases is helping make vehicles safer and preventing future accidents, but there is more work to do.
