Examples of Automobile Defects
Automobiles are complicated machines, and many different parts can fail and cause an accident. Some of the most common vehicle defects which injure drivers include:
- Defective tires: Tire treads can separate from the wheel, causing an accident or rollover.
- SUV rollover: SUV's which are poorly designed are susceptible to rolling over following a tire blowout or during sharp turns because of a high center of gravity.
- Roof crush: When a vehicle rolls over, roofs which are not designed to bear weight can crush downward into the driver or passengers.
- Door latch failure: Doors with defective locking mechanisms can cause a driver or passenger to be ejected from a vehicle during a crash.
- Seat belt failure: A seat belt which fails to restrain its occupants during a crash can make injuries worse than if the seat belt was functioning.
- Air bag failure: Airbags that fail to deploy or deploy late can cause head and neck injuries to the driver.
- Fuel system defects: A car with a defective fuel system may leak fluid, causing fires or explosions after an accident.
