Defective Vehicle Accidents

Accidents caused by defective vehicles are especially heart wrenching because they are entirely preventable, yet drivers are helpless to avoid them. Crashworthiness defects do not cause accidents, but they can turn a minor crash into a fatal one. The Jefferson City defective vehicle accident attorneys of Protzman Law Firm are here to level the playing field for accident victims like you who are up against the automakers and other large corporations.

Common Defects

It is a good idea to check regularly for recalls on your vehicle, and your child’s car seat if you have one, but you should also be aware that most defective vehicles are never recalled or are only recalled after there have been many injuries and deaths.

  • Ignition switch defect
  • Faulty tires
  • Faulty brake
  • Defective steering system
  • Defective air bags
  • Faulty sensors
  • Electrical problems
  • Fuel system defects
  • Defective seat belts
