Motor Vehicle Defects and Malfunctions

Drivers have a legal and moral responsibility to operate their cars, trucks, and vans in accordance with the established traffic safety laws and without engaging in negligent or reckless driving behaviors. But while a commitment by all motorists to drive safely can significantly reduce the risk of collisions, they are still effectively at the mercy of the manufacturers and mechanics that build and maintain their vehicles. Despite this responsibility, motor vehicle defects and malfunctions are frighteningly common.

If you have been hurt in a car wreck that was caused by a defective or malfunctioning motor vehicle, then it might be appropriate to pursue the matter in a lawsuit filed against the automaker or mechanic whose negligence enabled the crash. Contact the Des Moines car accident lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 705-0233 to speak directly with a skilled and experienced attorney about your case.

Frequent Defects and Malfunctions

Contemporary cars are incredibly complex machines that require the successful function and interaction of hundreds of different parts and systems. While this makes them capable of performing much more impressively, it also expands the potential sources from which problems may spring forth. Frequent defects and malfunctions that occur include:

  • Brake failure
  • Airbag defects
  • Seatbelt malfunctions
  • Tire blowouts
  • Brake light malfunctions
  • Warning horn failures
