What to do When a Defect Caused Your Car Accident
It is no secret that reckless and aggressive driving causes the majority of car accidents on the road. However, sometimes the most careful and responsible drivers can wind up in accidents because of auto defects. Car defects can lead to sudden and serious collisions that leave victims with devastating injuries. Some of the most common and dangerous defects that can cause an accident include tire blowouts, defective airbags, and malfunctioning brakes. Other aspects, such as defective seat belts or child car seats cannot cause accidents. However, they can fail to lessen the extent of injuries the way manufacturers assume they will.
If you have been involved in an accident caused or made worse by a defect in your car, you should follow a couple of important steps. First, it is essential to collect and keep any evidence related to the incident. This step can include taking photos of the damage to your car, and any injuries you sustained. It is also important that you do not get your car repaired under any circumstance. While this precaution may be inconvenient, your lawyer will need to have experts inspect the car in order to determine if a defect caused the accident. Getting your car fixed after the accident is essentially a way of destroying key evidence.
Next, you should find a strong car accident lawyer who can you fight for you. Cases involving car defects can be very complex, so it is essential to have an experienced attorney on your side who will give you the best chances at receiving proper compensation. Be sure to provide your attorney with all the information and evidence relevant to you case, including where and when you purchased the car.
