Manufacturing defects can be deadly

Manufacturing defects in automobiles can cause a variety of problems, from the annoying to the fatally dangerous. If you believe that your vehicle may have a manufacturing defect, it is not wise to wait for something to go wrong. A cursory understanding of what can be classified as a manufacturing defect can help you decide how to proceed.

A manufacturing defect that poses a safety risk can be many things, and will likely exist in a large number of the same kind of vehicle, or vehicles that utilize the same parts by the same manufacturer. The defects can create dangerous situations if vehicle components break or become compromised during the ordinary operation of the vehicle, including everything from windshield wipers, to the steering column, to fuel and braking systems. If these components break while the vehicle is in operation, this can result in a loss of control by the driver, endangering themselves, their passengers and other drivers on the road.

However, manufacturing defects can present dangers even when the vehicle is not in operation. If there are faulty components, individuals who are working on the vehicles can be placed at danger as well. Poorly mounted engine components may fall on mechanics or laypeople who are performing maintenance or many other similar hazards.

Whenever an automobile is involved in the injury or death of a person, it is worthwhile to investigate whether or not a manufacturing defect may have played a part in the incident. if you or someone you love has been injured or killed in an accident that may involve a manufacturing defect, a qualified attorney with experience in personal injury and wrongful death suits can help you explore your options for compensation, while helping to ensure that your rights remain protected.
