What Do You Need to Prove if a Car Defect Injures You?

Unfortunately, car accidents are frequently caused by factors that are completely out of the driver’s control, such as auto defects or malfunctions. These defects can occur because of problems that arise during the design, manufacturing, or installation processes. However, proving responsibility for auto accidents caused by car defects can be difficult.

If you’ve sustained an injury because of a vehicle defect, you may be entitled to pursue a compensation claim against the manufacturer responsible for the defect. To learn more about your legal options after an auto accident, contact a Charleston accident attorney of the Steinberg Law Firm today by calling 843-720-2800.

PROVING FAULT

An auto defect is a serious safety concern that can lead to a destructive car accident. In these situations, the car accident victim may be eligible for compensation from the auto part designer or manufacturer at fault. However, the injured party must be able to prove that the manufacturer or designer acted negligently if he or she wants to file a compensation claim.

Some requirements for determining fault include proving the following:

  • The product was designed poorly
  • The product was manufactured poorly
  • The product wasn’t tested sufficiently by the manufacturer
  • The product was inherently dangerous and there wasn’t enough warning

NEGLIGENCE VS. STRICT LIABILITY

Car defect claims can be argued through two different legal arguments. The first is known as negligence, or holding someone responsible for something that was their fault. However, with many car defects, proving fault is very difficult. In these cases, a person can use the second argument, known as strict liability. For these claims, a person should prove that the product was dangerous and that they were injured because of it.
