Common Motor Vehicle Defects and Malfunctions
Modern motor vehicles are truly feats of technology and engineering. They are, generally speaking, safer, more comfortable, and more efficient than the automobiles of even ten years ago. Unfortunately, the complexity of modern vehicles also creates the risk of many different kinds of defects. Defects and malfunctions strike without warning and through no fault of the driver or car owner, making them especially troubling phenomena.
If you have been injured in a car accident that appears to have involved a mechanical failure, then it may be appropriate to consider filing a civil lawsuit against the negligent automaker responsible for the collision.

Some comparatively frequent motor vehicle defects and malfunctions are:
- Seatbelt malfunctions
- Airbag defects
- Tire defects
- Brake malfunctions
- Emergency brake failure
- Warning horn failure
- Turn signal or brake light failure
Though some automobile defects and malfunctions become widely known through news media reports, these stories only capture a fraction of the total number of such problems. Moreover, they only tend to come to light after unsuspecting drivers such as yourself fall victim to the negligence of a vehicle manufacturer. There are countless other incidents that remain the personal tragedy of a family, far from the public eye.
If your life has been affected by a defective or malfunctioning motor vehicle, you deserve compensation for your pain, suffering, and financial losses.
