Pittsburgh Defective Automobile Lawyer
Car accidents occur every day. Although you may be a safe driver, another’s actions may result in a rear-end collision or a sideswipe. Such incidents, while frustrating, are not uncommon. Most of us can expect to get into a car crash at some point in our lives.
However, rather than as the result of another driver, you may be injured because the car you are in is defective. Your vehicle was simply not crashworthy. Crashworthiness can be compromised from the failure of brakes, latches, locks, airbags, seat belts, tires, wheels, windows or various other components of a car. Under product liability law, manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and retailers are all responsible for the proper and safe functioning of the products they produce and sell. If you are injured as a result of a component failure, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages from time taken off work to recover, and hardship as a result of the injury.
