When a car's safety system fails, we seek compensation

A previous post on this blog talked about the latest development in the ongoing problems with Takata airbags, which have been installed in various different makes and models of cars that many New Jersey residents buy and use. Yet again, the problem with these airbags, which tend to explode on impact, appears to have been more widespread than originally thought.

The safety equipment on a car is typically an overlooked part of a car accident, as the focus is generally on which driver was at fault for causing the accident in the first place. However, sometimes the safety equipment itself is the primary cause of an accident, such as when the brakes on a vehicle fail or the power steering stops working without warning.

In other cases, such as the case of the Takata airbags, defective equipment may not cause the accident, but it plays a huge role in turning what may have been an accident from which one could walk away in to an accident involving a serious injury or even a fatality.

Our law office represents victims of all kinds of car and other motor vehicle accidents, including accidents related to defective airbags.

Additionally, if a Camden County resident gets hurt driving a car with a defective part or safety feature, we are able to seek compensation from the manufacturer of the part. We also pursue compensation from negligent mechanics if their bad repair job causes an accident or contributes to a person's injuries.

When doing so, our first goal is to make sure that our clients get the compensation they will no doubt need to cover losses like medical bills and lost wages. With our extensive experience, we know how to make a strong argument to an insurer or manufacturer who may otherwise be reluctant to pay damages.
