Defective Auto Part Manufacturers

Defective Product Lawyers in Philadelphia

What if a defective seatbelt harmed your child? What if a defective tire sheared on a busy freeway while your wife was driving 65 mph? What if a defective braking part failed in a severe thunderstorm? Sadly, these questions become a reality for thousands of consumers across the country each and every year. In fact, since the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act was enacted in 1966, more than 390 million cars, trucks, buses, recreational vehicles, and motorcycles have been recalled over safety concerns.

In addition, more than 46 million tires, 66 million auto parts, and 42 million child safety seats have been recalled due to safety defects that were life-threatening. Auto parts manufacturers, like any product makers, have a duty to ensure their products are safe before hitting the market. Poorly designed, faultily produced, or mis-marketed auto parts have the potential to lead to severe injury or wrongful death.

Types of Defective Auto Parts

There are thousands of recalls for car and truck parts every year, and many occur only after numerous people are harmed. Commonly recalled auto parts include:

  • Accelerator or brake pedals
  • Air bags
  • Brake components
  • Door latches
  • Electrical systems
  • Fuel lines
  • Gas tanks
  • Steering columns
  • Seat belts

A defective auto part can come from the automobile manufacturer itself or from a separate manufacturer, such as a tire manufacturer or an aftermarket part manufacturer. Even automobile accessories can be defective and lead to serious and catastrophic accidents.

When an auto part fails or has a defect, the results can be deadly. When this occurs, you need an experienced Philadelphia defective product lawyer on your side. At Golomb & Honik, P.C., our attorneys will investigate all aspects of your accident to determine if an auto part defect is to blame. We often consult with design engineers, safety experts, analysts, forensic specialists, and medical professionals to expose the flaws in the auto part and the deliberate negligence of the manufacturer. These complex cases often take time and considerable resources to see to the end. As a result, you need a law firm with the resources needed to take large auto part manufacturers to trial-and win.

Unfortunately, auto part manufacturers don’t usually accept blame for their defective products easily. It is not uncommon for them to claim that natural wear and tear caused the product failure or that the blame for the accident lies solely with the car driver. In addition, they often employ large legal teams who are dedicated to protecting their bottom line and avoiding liability.

At Golomb & Honik, P.C., we don’t believe that auto part manufacturers should be allowed to hide behind these smoke screens and avoid taking responsibility for their defective products. Our attorneys have the knowledge and resources to stand up to major auto manufacturers and vehicle parts makers when their defective products result in harm to consumers. We fight aggressively for consumer rights and can help you stand up to large auto part manufacturers whose negligence has resulted in your injury.
