Car accidents are one of the biggest killers in the United States, claiming between 30,000 and 40,000 lives every year. In addition, there are approximately 6 million accidents every year, which injure nearly 3 million people. Tragically, many of these injuries could have been prevented by functioning equipment. Defects may be responsible for many otherwise preventable auto accidents.

There are several automobile defects which, unfortunately, occur fairly regularly. Some of these include:
Tire defects. Defective tires can be incredibly dangerous, causing blowouts or worse.
Brake malfunction. You rely on brakes to rapidly arrest your vehicle’s motion. If they are not working, you could be unable to prevent an accident from occurring.
Seatbelt malfunction. Seatbelts saved nearly 110,000 lives from 1991 to 2001. But to save lives, they must be functioning properly. If a seatbelt does not latch correctly, it could result in injury or worse.
Often, large companies are responsible for faulty safety mechanisms, and these corporations may be responsible for your injury.
