In every car produced nowadays there are a lot of safety features to protect drivers and passengers in the event of an accident. There are certain expectations that one has about the safety of seat belts, airbags, the ability of the roof to sustain a rollover and the safety of a car to hold up in a crash. Defective car lawyers know the importance of these safety features. Because cars weigh over a ton and travel at high speeds, a car wreck can be very dangerous to passengers and drivers. There are several different ways that a car can be defective and pose a threat to passengers and others on the road.
When a car gets into a car crash, whether it is the driver's fault or not, it is expected that the car will be able to protect the passengers as much as possible. Defective car lawyers refer to how well a car holds up in a crash is called its crashworthiness. If a car has an unreasonably low crashworthiness it can be considered a defect, especially if the car is doing something that the manufacturers or designers were not aware of. An example of this would be a car that, when hit head, catches fire and explodes. Car models should be safety tested and any weak spots in crashworthiness should be fixed before they are put on the market.
A tire malfunction is not always the fault of the car company. Tire producers and companies can also be held liable for automotive defects. Any sort of tire malfunction can be extremely dangerous because cars are traveling at high speeds and a tire blowout or tire tread separation can cause the driver of the car to lose control at an unknown point. For example, if a tire blows out while you are driving at top speed on the interstate, you will likely lose control of your vehicle and may crash into other cars, the median, or even on-coming traffic. There is no way to know if tires are defectively constructed until it was too late.
Cars are designed with the latest safety features built in and there are laws in the State of Georgia that require certain safety features such is airbags, seat belts and the ability of a car to sustain a roll over. If any of the safety features fail to do what they're supposed to, this is considered by automotive defect lawyers to be a car defect. If a car gets hit or rolls of the road and rolls over on its roof, cars are expected to be constructed nowadays to withstand the pressure. If the car is defectively produced or designed and the roof collapses, the passengers inside could get crushed and severely injured or even killed. Airbags are another concern. Even if an airbag does deploy if it deploys too hard or too fast it can cause injury or even suffocation. Of course, airbags and seat belts that do not work at all are serious concerns too.
Aside from safety features, cars can have dangerous defects in many other ways as well. If a car's brakes fail or engine shuts down while it is being used, it can lead to serious car wrecks. There have been cases of parking brakes not working well and parked cars rolling over small children and causing death. If there is a serious accidents and it is discovered that the root cause was due to the car malfunctioning, this can be the liability of the manufacturer or designer of the car.
