Defective car parts cause serious accidents and injuries

In the last few years, millions of Americans were affected by the recall of their vehicles due to defective airbags. The source of the defective car parts was a single product manufacturer, and the bad airbags ended up inside vehicles made by nearly 20 different automakers. In a crash, the defective airbags could explode and send metal shards into a vehicle, which in turn, could inflict life-threatening injuries on individuals already the victim of a vehicle accident.

This anecdote highlights one of the biggest auto part recalls in United States history, and it affected the lives of Louisiana residents as well. While some individuals whose vehicles contained the defective airbags never experienced the violent problems the airbags could introduce, others suffered serious injuries due to this major products liability situation.

Product malfunctions and defects are not limited to vehicle airbags, though. Practically any part of a car, truck, van or sport utility vehicle can be manufactured incorrectly and present drivers and passengers with threats to their health and safety, if they fail to perform as intended.

At the law firm of Frischhertz, Poulliard, Frischhertz, Impastato, LLC, the attorneys are knowledgeable about defective car part litigation and passionate about supporting their clients through their post-accident lives. Their products liability practice accommodates individuals who have suffered harm due to unsafe vehicle components, dangerous toys, unsafe building materials and other product-based deficiencies that can cause consumers harm. Vehicle components, especially those like airbags, are crafted to be safe and provide drivers and passengers with confidence that their automobiles are sound. When defects arise, products liability litigation can be a useful tool to provide an injured victim with compensation to recover from their ordeal.
