Accident Injuries Caused By Auto Defects

It takes skill, experience and resourcefulness to successfully recover financial compensation in a defective auto part case. Proving that a faulty part was the cause of your accident and the resulting injuries often deals with complex manufacturing methods and accident data. Combining that with the medical evidence necessary to establish the full value of your case requires collaboration with specialized medical experts and accident reconstructionists.

At Carluzzo Rochkind & Smith, P.C., we have handled these types of cases for over 25 years for families in Manassas, Prince William, Manassas Park, Gainesville, Haymarket, Woodbridge, Lake Ridge, Dumfries, Bristow, Warrenton, Centreville, Fairfax, Stafford, Chantilly, Leesburg, Ashburn, Sterling, Herndon, Reston, Alexandria, Annandale, Arlington, and throughout Northern Virginia.

We regularly lead cases seeking compensation on behalf of our injured clients against large corporations and tough insurance defense teams.

Some of the members of our firm are former insurance defense lawyers who will help to prepare both the offensive and defensive measures that are necessary to counter the strategies employed by the opposing parties.

How Do You Know If Your Accident Was Caused By An Auto Defect?

Honestly, you can’t be certain without a thorough independent investigation. You and we might suspect a faulty air bag, a stuck gas pedal or defective tires, but the only way to be certain and to collect the proper evidence for your case is to work with automobile mechanical experts.

The cause of your accident might be similar to those of other owners of the same vehicle or car brand. It might be part of recall, or it could be the reason to trigger a recall if we can prove your case in court.

However, not just car manufacturers are responsible for all motor vehicle defects. Aftermarket parts suppliers and auto repair shops could also be responsible for the cause of your accident, which could have been:

  • A design defect
  • A material defect
  • An improper installation of a part such as tires, batteries or spark plugs
  • Improper wheel or chassis alignment
  • A manufacturing defect
  • Misleading marketing of a product
  • Failure to follow a recall request by the dealer
  • Inadequate safety warnings or protections
