As a driver, you know that most car accidents are caused by a driver’s negligence. For example, you could make a mistake that causes an accident. Of course, there are times when another driver makes an error that leads to your injury.
Did you know that an auto defect could also cause a motor vehicle accident? This may not be something you think about often, but it’s more common than many people believe.
Think about how many parts make up your vehicle. With this in mind, it’s easy to see how one defect could cause major trouble on the roadway.
An auto defect can be related to any part of your vehicle, including the following:
— Seat belts
— Air bags
— Steering system
— Floor mats
— Window glass
Take for example an air bag that inflates with too much force. If this happens, it can cause more harm than good in the event of an accident.
When you buy a vehicle, you hope that it’s safe. Unfortunately, with so many cars manufactured every year, mistakes can and do happen.
