Types of Auto Defect Claims

While the majority of today's vehicles are relatively free from defects, there are a percentage that are sold on the consumer market that are later found to have inherent design or manufacturing defects. When a person is injured as a direct result of an automotive defect, they may have grounds to file a personal injury claim.

When a person files a claim for damages that resulted from the dangerous or defective automobile, the plaintiff is asserting a product liability claim against the automobile's manufacturer or the manufacturer of the defective part or system.

Product liability claims usually fall into two categories: defectively manufactured vehicle parts or vehicles, and vehicles with an unreasonably dangerous design.

  • Defectively manufactured vehicles or parts: In this scenario, the vehicle parts were not manufactured correctly. In such cases, the manufacturing facility may have made an error, or there may have been a problem with the shipping, the dealership, or the supplier.
  • Unreasonably dangerous design: While a vehicle may have been manufactured correctly, the unreasonably dangerous design resulted in injury or other damages.

Who is responsible?

In the case of a defective automobile, there may be more than one defendant; for example, the defendants may include any one or more of the following: the manufacturer, the parts manufacturer, the car dealership, the automotive supply shop, or the shipper.

Even if you were a passenger in the defective vehicle, or if you were borrowing someone else's car, you may still have a valid auto product liability claim. If you were in an accident and the other driver was driving a defective motor vehicle, you may both have a claim against the manufacturer.
