When a person is injured due to a dangerous automobile, he or she can and should file a product liability claim against the automobile’s manufacturer, as well as the company that manufactured the component part or system that failed.
In his book Unsafe at Any Speed, Ralph Nader spearheaded the campaign against negligent manufacturers. His focus was the Chevrolet Corvair and automobile defects found in other vehicles, as well. The book tells of how automobile manufacturers will sometimes make an intentional choice of using unsafe designs or products so as to save a few dollars on each car manufactured. Likewise, these manufacturers also avoid adding certain devices that would protect occupants from sustaining injuries.
A prime example of this is the gas tank on a Ford Pinto. In this case the manufacturer used a cheaper design which greatly increased the risk of a fire in a rear-end collision instead of using a more expensive design that would have saved lives.
You may have grounds to file an automobile product liability claim if you have been injured, and you believe that your injuries were the result of a defective automobile. It is important to remember, however, that you are dealing with large companies with attorneys and vast resources at their disposal. You will, therefore, need an aggressive and capable New Orleans personal injury attorney from the Voorhies Law Firm, who has the experience in handling auto product liability cases and dealing with large corporations.
We welcome the opportunity to assist you if you have been injured by a defective automobile. We will determine the liability and pursue aggressively the full compensation that you are entitled to.
