Houston Mechanical Failures Lawyer
While a large portion of car accidents are caused by intoxication or reckless driving, a substantial number are a result of some sort of mechanical failure. Sometimes, a car manufacturer, part manufacturer, or auto repair shop can be careless in their sale of defective parts, leading to hundreds of recalls when an unfortunate incident proves vehicles that use those parts to be unsafe. Whether the mechanical failure is due to a design error, overlooked flaw, or non-functioning part, those in the chain of distribution have a duty of care to not expose their consumers to negligent danger or unnecessary hazard.
Sustaining injury or even death in a car accident because of a defective vehicle component can be painful and distressing. We trust that the products we use will work with its intended purpose; cars are already dangerous without the unwarranted risk that a mechanical failure presents. At Williams Kherkher, our Houston mechanical failure attorneys are dedicated to determining who is responsible for these tragic accidents and providing restitution to victims.
Common Kinds of Mechanical Failure
Faulty service by a garage or dealer and defective car parts can lead to serious injury for not only unsuspecting drivers of the vehicle, but also innocent passersby who may be caught in the path of destruction. While more serious defects—such as a faulty gear-shift or incorrectly deployed airbag—occur regularly, more common types of mechanical failure can include:
- Brake failure
- Tire blowout
- Broken head or tail lights
- Inoperative steering wheel
- Defective windshield wiper
Regular maintenance of your vehicle can help circumvent some spontaneous car failure, but sometimes a mechanical failure is unavoidable through no fault of the driver. Unfortunately, drivers regularly suffer the consequences of a car part manufacturer’s oversight. Victims of these oversight can possibly recover compensation for the injuries they’ve endured.
