Injuries from a wreck are serious enough, but sometimes they are more extensive due to an auto defect. Some wrecks are caused by an auto defect, others just hurt you more. Either way, auto defects shouldn’t happen and the company that caused the defect should be held accountable.
Because of our experience handling Wichita, Andover and Goddard serious car accidents, the lawyers at Ray Hodge and Associates can help identify if an auto defect played a part in your injuries. Just a few signs that you may have had an auto defect include:
Fuel tank fire: The design on fuel tanks is that they should be strong enough to withstand impacts that humans can handle. If they catch fire or explode when you’re hit, chances are, there was a flaw.
Car roof collapse: Again, automobiles should be designed strong enough to withstand the force of flipping over.
Ejection (or partial ejection) while wearing seatbelt: Even if a loved one has been killed and you were informed they weren’t wearing a seatbelt, investigate seatbelt failure. People can still be ejected or partially ejected due to seatbelt flaws.
Tire blowout: A tire blowing out or shredding causes loss of control and vehicle rollovers.
If you believe your car wreck injuries were intensified by an auto defect, our experience handling auto defects can help you get compensation for your losses.
