Defective Vehicle Accidents
Helping injured victims recover compensation
Some car accidents are caused not by the driver, but by the vehicle. The vehicle was defective, or had a defective part that led to the crash. What happens to the victims of a crash caused by the vehicle that was supposed to be safe? How do they recover compensation for their injuries? The car accident attorneys at Tracey & Fox can help.
We hold the manufacturers of defective vehicles and parts responsible when their negligence led to an accident that left people hurt. You may have a claim if:
- An injury was caused while using the vehicle for its intended purposes, in the correct manner.
- The existence of a dangerous defect was present; either the manufacturer didn't provide warning and was aware of its presence, or the vehicle became compromised during any part of the processing, shipping, or manufacturing process.
- The car experiences a substantial change in performance and function that vastly differs from the condition it was sold in. These changes are usually sudden, such as a muffler failure, or bad brakes.
