If my vehicle malfunctioned, am I still to blame for an auto accident?
When a vehicle malfunctions and causes an accident, it is not necessarily the fault of the driver. It is possible that the car suffers from a factory or manufacturer’s defect, or from a mechanic’s mistake. If that is the case, this third party may be liable for the accident and any injuries caused. However, if the car’s malfunction is found to be the responsibility of the driver, that driver may at fault for the accident. Overall, auto accidents can be confusing and traumatizing events, making it difficult to sort out the facts and discover the responsible party without the help of a lawyer.
