Defective Vehicles and Car Accidents
Driver error is probably the most common cause of car accidents, but defective vehicles and defective vehicle parts also cause their fair share of car accidents. The legal issues are complicated in determining who is liable when an injury or death is caused by a defective automobile or automobile part. Those liable for damages can include the vehicle manufacturer, the car dealership, the manufacturer of the automobile parts, or the distributor of the car parts.
Some of the most infamous defective automobile and automobile parts in recent history are the Ford Explorer recall of models made 1996 to 2002 and the Bridgestone/Firestone tire recall of 2000.
