Defective Car, Truck And Other Automobiles
Injuries caused by auto defects are sometimes called “the accident within the accident.” In some cases, the injury or even the accident itself would not have occurred if not for a defect in the auto’s safety system.
At the law offices of Ginsberg & O'Connor, P.C., in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, our lawyers have the experience to assert the rights of consumers who have been injured as the result of defects in cars, trucks, motorcycles and other motor vehicles. We handle product liability cases throughout New Jersey.
Holding Negligent Auto Manufacturers Responsible
There are many different kinds of auto defects that can cause an accident or lead to serious injury following an accident. Examples include:
- Defective tires
- Defective seat belts or door locks
- Weak roofs that get crushed during rollover accidents
- Unintended acceleration
- Defective brakes
- Fuel-fed fires
- Battery fires in electric cars
An automobile’s safety system begins with the premise that accidents will happen. When an accident happens, those systems are designed to protect you. If those systems fail and you are injured as a result, the manufacturer may be responsible. Under New Jersey law, you can recover compensation for damages for a defective vehicle accident, such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability and wrongful death of a family member.
