By federal law, automobiles must meet certain basic, minimum safety standards. In addition, automobile manufacturers are required to take reasonable precautions in the design and manufacture of their vehicles.
Some injuries are caused by vehicle defects that the occupants don’t even know about. After an auto collision that caused serious injuries, you will need need a specialist (many times an automotive engineer) to examine the vehicle and check for problems. You will also need an experienced and dedicated automotive defect attorney who can design/conduct crash tests with an alternative vehicle without the defects.
Attorneys at Kelley/Uustal have handled all types of automotive defect cases, including:
Most attorneys are not competent enough to determine if there is an automotive defect. If you have suffered serious injuries or a family member has died in a crash, you should contact us, even if your case has been rejected by another attorney, or even if another attorney has settled with the drivers or insurance companies. In both cases, you may have a valid claim against the auto manufacturer. You shouldn’t have to suffer, medically or financially, if an automobile manufacturer failed to meet the safety requirements mandated by law.
