What do I need to prove when suing an automotive manufacturer?
Automotive defect claims are rarely ever argued on the basis of the defendant’s negligence, unlike many other types of personal injury lawsuits. Instead, defects in automotive parts are considered to be an inherent danger to anyone in the vehicle, making the manufacturer potentially liable. This type of lawsuit is known as a strict liability claim and doesn’t require a claimant to illustrate that the manufacturer’s actions lead to a defect, but just that the defect lead to an injury.
If your car accident injuries were caused by an automotive defect, we may be able to help you through the process of filing a compensation claim against the responsible manufacturer.
