Car Accident Due To Vehicle Malfunction

Ft. Lauderdale Accident and Injury Attorneys Are Here To Help

Most Car Accidents occur due to the negligence of another driver, road conditions or even road construction. But sometimes the cause of the car accident is the car itself. This can happen because of a defect in the design, a manufacture or assembly error, faulty vehicle part or anything else that can lead to a sudden malfunction or breakdown. These sorts of vehicle malfunctions can cause minor collisions, major accidents or even auto accidents that result in fatalities.

Driving safely and following the rules of the road, then suddenly finding yourself a victim of an auto accident because your car suddenly malfunctioned is incredibly unfair and dangerous. In less obvious scenarios, many people don’t take the proper steps or explore the possibilities that maybe the moment they felt they lost control really might have been a car malfunction and not a moment of carelessness on their part.

Cars are required to pass certain testing and meet safety standards before they are released for the public to purchase. There are times that in the car company’s rush to manufacture, a vehicle may be released with a defective automobile part. Vehicle defects can happen in many different ways – Some more obvious than others.

  • Child car seat failure
  • Defective Airbag – failure to deploy during an accident or unintended deployment
  • Transmission malfunctioning
  • Defective seatbelts
  • Roof crushing during a rollover
  • Car stalling due to the ignition being defective
  • Tires – tread separation, blowout, defective
  • Brakes Defective
  • Brakes Malfunctioning
  • Defective Axle, wheel or other steering component that may fail
  • Improperly designed add-ons that may affect proper operation of car – floor mats, grill, covers, side rails
  • Cruise-control malfunctioning that may cause sudden acceleration
