Accidents Caused by a Defective Car or Truck
People can do many things to prevent accidents from occurring, but they cannot prevent everything. No matter how carefully you drive, you are likely to be involved in a crash eventually. What most people do not count on is being involved in an accident caused or made worse by auto defects.
At The McCallister Law Firm, in Kansas City, Missouri, our attorneys represent people injured by defectively designed and manufactured automobiles. We will obtain the money necessary for you to pay for your medical bills and compensate you for your lost wages, among other recoverable items such as pain and suffering, future medical needs, and other legal compensation.
Types of Auto Defects
Auto defects cause all sorts of problems on the roadways like rollovers, rear-end crashes, front-end collisions, and other types of accidents. Where a properly designed and manufactured car would have protected you, a car with an auto defect can cause serious injuries or even death.
Our attorneys represent people injured in an accident caused by, or made worse because of:
- Airbags that fail to deploy or deployed prematurely
- Seat belts that did not latch or restrain the occupant
- A defect or blown-out tire causing an SUV rollover
- Automobile companies failing to comply with an auto recall
- Defective fuel pump, filter, and fuel tank placement
- Deficient roof strength caused by poor design of the roof pillars
Compensation For Injuries Caused by Auto Defects
In order to recover money to pay for your medical bills, you must prove that the defendant had a hand in designing, manufacturing, distributing, or repairing your car. If proven, these parties are liable for your injuries even if they lacked the intent to injure you.
