While many car accidents are caused by drivers, some are the result of problems with the car. Automobile defects include any inadequacy or failure of a car part.
If the problem with the car part results in a car accident, then the car manufacturer, part manufacturer, or another related party may be liable for damages. Also, if the defect is with a safety device and the safety device fails to work properly in an accident, then the safety device manufacturer or another related party may be liable for damages.
One precaution that all drivers should take is to get their cars inspected regularly as required by law. These inspections can sometimes detect defects before they become problematic.
