Holding Manufacturers Accountable For Defective Vehicle Designs And Parts

We rely on the vehicles we drive everyday to get us to and from our destinations safely and without incident. But when manufacturers cut corners or push a vehicle to market too quickly without proper testing, defects can get through that could lead to serious or fatal accidents.

At Gilder & Howell, Attorneys PLLC, we understand the pain and stress accident victims must endure after a serious crash. We also know how frustrating it can be to receive pushback from a manufacturer who is more concerned about profits than taking responsibility for releasing a dangerous or defective product.

We hold manufacturer's responsible for their negligence because we care about our clients. We believe in fighting for fair compensation and helping our clients get back to their lives after a crash. Get started today with a free initial consultation.

Automotive Defects That Can Lead To A Crash

There are a number of defects that can cause a serious or fatal crash:

  • Unsafe vehicle designs that can result in rollovers or other types of crashes
  • Overlooked design dangers such as failing to shield a gas tank or installing the incorrect battery type
  • Defective tires that can lead to tire blowouts
  • Dangerous car parts including faulty brakes, poor seat belt design or air bags that inflate too quickly or explode
  • Mechanism malfunctions such as gear shift and transmission problems that could cause a vehicle to speed up or fail to stop unexpectedly

Recall Notices Aren't Always Enough

Although manufacturers are supposed to send out recall notices after a defect is discovered, some companies have been known to delay calling attention to liability or sending out notices only after injuries and deaths have already occurred. In some cases, notices don't always reach vehicle owners in time; sometimes even receiving notices after an accident has already happened.
