Types of Auto Part Defects
All motor vehicles and automotive parts manufacturers are required to comply
with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and Regulations issued by
the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Yet, millions
of vehicles and auto parts have been recalled due to failure to fulfill
those standards. As a result, tragic accidents can occur.
To help alleviate some of the emotional and physical consequences caused
by these tragic occurrences, injured parties can file product liability
lawsuits against the auto manufacturers. In such a lawsuit, you would
claim that the auto part was defective when the vehicle was initially
purchased, that you were using the vehicle in a manner intended by the
manufacturer, and that you suffered damages because of the defect.
The Most Common Types of Auto Defects Include:
- Air bags that don’t deploy or deploy inadequately
- Seats that fail
- Seat belts that break
- Tires that break and cause loss of control
- Electrical system problems that cause loss of lights or fires
- Accelerators which break or stick
- Wheels that break or crack and cause loss of control
- Steering components that break and cause loss of control
