Motor vehicle defect claims may be based on manufacturing or design defects in any part of the vehicle, including passenger restraints (seat belts), airbags, brakes, electrical system, engine and exhaust, fuel system, tires and steering. They may also be based on an overall design of the vehicle that makes the vehicle dangerous.
For example, a design of the vehicle might make a rollover more likely, such as in the case of certain sport utility vehicles (SUVs). Passenger vehicles, vans, trucks, motorcycles, and other motor vehicles may also contain defects that cause injury.
Burg Simpson’s attorneys have handled many product liability cases involving defective motor vehicles and their component parts.
