Automotive Defects

You may remember losing control of your vehicle before a crash. But what caused that loss of control?

The attorneys at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder PC, thoroughly investigate all of our motor vehicle accident cases to determine what happened and who is responsible. We frequently retain an accident reconstructionist and other experts to analyze the evidence and evaluate the car’s crashworthiness.

Often we find that our clients’ injuries were caused by auto defects, such as dangerous or defective.

  • Head rests that fail to prevent neck and spinal cord injuries
  • Seat belts that release in a rollover accident
  • Seat backs that fail, causing loss of vehicle control and injury to those sitting behind the defective seat
  • Air bags that fail to deploy in a front-end crash or deploy unnecessarily and cause injury
  • Gas tanks that lead to fuel-fed fires or explosions on impact
  • Tires, including those that cause tire tread separations
  • Roofs that cannot withstand the impact of a rollover accident
  • Side windows that break out in a crash, allowing occupants to be ejected from the vehicle
  • SUVs and 15-passenger vans that roll over because of design defects

In many instances, automakers knew that their vehicles or components put consumers at risk, but did nothing to improve safety until many lives were lost.
