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.

Put Our Product Defect Lawyers in Your Corner
When an auto part fails or has a defect, the results can be deadly. When
this occurs, you need an experienced Philadelphia personal injury 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.
