What is Auto Product Liability?

Auto product liability can take on a variety of forms:

  • Car design: Top heavy vehicles, almost as tall as their wheelbase is wide, have a higher propensity for rolling over, thus posing added risk to consumers. Another example is improperly designed windshields that catch enough window-glare to seriously impair visibility while driving.
  • Materials used: As with any product, the parts used must be proven not to unreasonably fail and must not create dangerous situations when they are put to use.
  • Product recalls: If a manufacturer discovers a flaw in its product, and consumers of that product are not promptly notified of said flaw, then consumers may experience injury or other impairment as the result of the flaw.

Recent Case Result:

  • $5,650,000 Recovered: Product liability case involving a defective seat design that resulted in paraplegia

Do Defective Car Parts Cause Accidents?

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 41,059 people died in motor vehicle crashes in 2007. While the vast majority of these accidents were undoubtedly caused by driver negligence, there is a portion of them that were probably caused by auto product defects that resulted in diminished vehicle performance and loss of control. Automobile and automobile parts manufacturers have an obligation to create and sell products that are safe, and that do not pose unreasonable risk when they are used as instructed.
