Defective Automobiles

Our attorneys protect your rights

Each year, millions of people are injured in car accidents. Many of these accidents are caused by faulty or defective automobile parts such as brakes, seat belts and tires. Manufacturers can be held responsible when a malfunctioning auto part causes a traffic accident and subsequent injuries. But actually holding such corporations responsible for such reckless or negligent behavior can be often be extremely challenging.

Fortunately, you're not alone. At the Law Offices of Brent C. Miller, P.A., we help victims of auto accidents seek compensation and hold negligent companies responsible. To schedule a time to meet at one of our four office locations, please call or complete our contact form. We know how the legal system works and know how to get results.

Common types of automobile defects

  • Seat belts - When seat belts are defectively designed or fail to work, the results can be catastrophic. Accident victims can suffer serious head, neck and back injuries. A defective seat belt may fail to prevent an accident victim from ejecting from the vehicle.
  • Airbags - In some cases, airbags can cause more harm than good. Recalls have been issued for Takata airbags, which released shrapnel metal when deployed. This has caused serious injuries, including blindness.
  • Brakes - Defective brakes can cause a driver to lose control of a car, making it impossible to avoid collisions and make quick decisions while maneuvering a car.
  • Tires - Tire blowouts are extremely dangerous, and certain tire brands are known to be prone to blowouts.
  • SUV rollovers - Certain SUVs have a higher tendency to roll over in a collision when compared to cars or pickup trucks. The manufacturers of these vehicles may be held responsible when an accident and rollover occur.

We represent people who have been injured due to these defects as well as others. Schedule a consultation to discuss your accident with one of our personal injury attorneys.

Auto recalls and accident lawyers

Thousands of automobiles are recalled each year. Many of these recalls are due to automobile defects. If you were injured in an accident involving an automobile that was subject to a recall, talk to one of our attorneys to learn about your options. If a recall has already been issued, there are specific considerations to keep in mind. We will help you take the appropriate legal steps to seek the compensation you deserve.

Don't try to tackle such a complicated legal case on your own. It's important to remember two things:

  • The company that caused your mechanical defect will likely have an entire team of attorneys working for them.
  • You only have a limited amount of time (known as the "statute of limitations") to take legal action.

Don't miss out on your opportunity for justice. Schedule a time to meet with one of our attorneys. Complete our contact form. If you cannot come to our office, we can meet at your home or in the hospital. Your needs come first here.
