Product liability is typically the basis for insurance claims caused through vehicle defects. Manufacturers are obliged to ensure the products they create are safe for people to use and those that fail in this manner should pay compensation to anyone who sufferers personal injuries as a result of this negligence.

There are a number of ways by which vehicle defects can cause death or serious injury to their occupants, including:

  • Airbags that deploy unnecessarily, or do not deploy following a collision
  • Faulty steering components that prevent the driver from controlling the vehicle
  • Defective tyres that cause loss of control
  • Defective seatbelts that fail to protect the wearer
  • Faulty breaks or pedals that hamper the driver’s ability to control speed

Car manufacturers have insurance policies that will pay out following accidents caused by a vehicle’s faults and should recall their products if they realise they are dangerous. If you suspect that your car is faulty, you should take it back to the retailer that sold it to you so that they can record the fault and inform the manufacturer of it.

If any faults cause death or injury to drivers or passengers, the injured parties should contact our personal injury solicitors and start a claim for compensation against the manufacturer. We have extensive experience in product liability claims and road accident compensation and can get you the payout that you need to get your life back on track.
