The law recognizes that consumers have a right to expect that their car will keep them reasonably safe in the event of a car accident. This is known as being crashworthy, which is the legal requirement for a car manufacture to design and build a car that will prevent or mitigate injuries to vehicle occupants during a collision. In addition to expecting that our vehicles will keep us safe, we also assume that our vehicles will not be responsible for causing a car accident in Houston. Unfortunately, auto defects are responsible for thousands of car accidents, personal injuries, and deaths every year.
There are a variety of vehicle defects that can cause or aggravate an injury when a person is involved in an accident. By way of example, improperly designed roofs can cause death or paralysis when the roof structure comes down on the occupants of the vehicle; improperly designed fuel tanks can cause a vehicle to catch fire during a collision; faulty seatbelts can release during a roll-over causing occupants to be thrown from the vehicle; and SUVs with too high of a center of gravity can cause a vehicle to roll-over.
At Sutliff & Stout, the personal injury lawyers within our firm are devoted to helping injured people and their families in Houston. Some common automobile defect claims arise from:
- SUV Rollover
- Roof Crush Injuries
- Child Safety Seat Failure
- Defective Airbags
- Seat Belt Injuries
- 15-Passenger Vans
- Car Fires, Van Fires & Ford Vehicle Fires
- Tire Defects or Tread separations
If you or a loved one has been involved in a roll-over or serious car accident in Houston, Texas, call us today for a free initial consolation.
