Automobile Defect Attorney
Every time an individual gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, that life is in many ways put into the hands of auto manufacturers. The automotive industry is held to an exceedingly high standard, and most vehicles are entirely safe for drivers and passengers. Even so, some automobiles are developed with defects and other hazards that could pose a threat to safety. While ethical manufacturers will respond to defects by quickly issuing an immediate recall, others make the decision to ignore the reports of safety issues made by consumers or noted in vehicle testing. Tragically, each year people are injured or killed by preventable auto defects.
In cases where the manufacturer was responsible for an accident related to a rollover, seatbelt malfunction, airbag failure, seat back collapse, or similar malfunction, it does not matter if the driver was at fault for causing the collision. Although many manufacturers and insurers will attempt to put the blame solely on the driver, the expert attorneys at Shapiro Winthers & McGraw P.C. know how to fight for the rights of drivers and passengers who have been injured due to an automobile defect. Together, our highly skilled staff work to secure fair financial and medical relief from injuries caused by defective automobiles.
