Car Manufacturer Negligence

Although accidents take place on a regular basis, many incidents could have been prevented if the manufacturer had taken steps to ensure the safety of consumers. When parts fail to perform properly, they can cause serious injuries to the drivers and passengers on the road. For example, if the air bag fails to deploy, a minor accident could result in severe injuries.

On the other hand, if the air bag deploys without warning, serious damage could result to the driver or passengers of that vehicle. Another serious issue is brake-system failure. Brakes are the most important safety feature of any vehicle. When brakes do not operate in the proper manner, serious injury or death could occur.
