Accidents Involving Defective Vehicles
Car, truck and motorcycle accidents happen every day. Many of which are caused by collision and the sheer negligence of other drivers on the roadway. But, sometimes these accidents are the result of a defective product. The differences between these two types of cases are complicated and should be examined by a personal injury lawyer.
You may remember some of these motor vehicle companies recalling specific vehicles and/or parts of the vehicle due to a defect; companies such as: Firestone, General Motors, Toyota and Ford.
Firestone: Millions of tires were recalled due to a safety defect.
General Motors: Ignition switches were recalled due to a defect that can affect the safe operation of the air bag system.
Toyota: The gas pedal became trapped under the floor mat resulting in unintended acceleration.
Ford: The recall of vehicles due to a leak in the gas tank leading to potential fires.
