Pittsburgh Defective Car Part Attorney
Erie Brake Failure Attorney · Pennsylvania and Ohio Auto Defect Injury Lawyer
When you buy a car, either new or used, every component is required to go through rigorous product testing to ensure the safety of the driver, passengers and other people on the road. If a gas tank explodes because of a defect or a seat belt fails, the auto manufacturer as well as the supplier of the defective part may be held liable for damages.
Complex Technical Issues with Auto Parts
Investigating and preparing a winning auto defect litigation case requires experience, knowledge and financial resources that many personal injury firms can’t offer. Every auto defect lawsuit is really a case-within-a-case, as your attorney will first have to fight to determine the percentage of damages the part manufacturer should be held liable for. Under Pennsylvania and Ohio laws, you can claim damages up to a comparable amount of liability determined by the courts.
After the percentage of liability has been set, your attorney will then have to aggressively fight to recover full and fair money damages in a negotiated settlement or a jury verdict. These types of cases require a thorough understanding of complex technical issues and often take a year or more to settle or go to trial. Your law firm must have the financial and professional resources to handle the cost of investigating and preparing your case.
