California Auto Defect Lawyers

If you were injured in an automobile accident that was caused by a motor vehicle defect, you may be entitled to receive full compensation for your medical bills; other costs associated with the accident, such as property damage and lost wages; and even pain and suffering. The May Firm takes accidents resulting from motor vehicle defects very seriously and will fight for you!

Automobile accidents are not always the result of poor driving. Automobiles are very complex and include complicated mechanical and electrical systems. The tiniest problem could lead to an accident-causing malfunction. If a car is equipped with faulty brakes, for example, the operator could be unable to stop the vehicle and susceptible to a serious accident at any time.

Most motor vehicle defects are not easily detectable to the average person and may require specific tests conducted by a professional to discover. Unfortunately, many motor vehicle defects are not discovered until something goes tragically wrong. A manufacturer typically won’t know that a particular motor vehicle model’s airbags shoot glass when they deploy until someone is involved in an accident and is seriously injured by flying pieces of glass.

“If I ever need a lawyer again, I’m calling the May Firm. I was rear ended and had a ton of bills. They told me what my rights were and that they would take care of me. All I had to do was get to physical therapy. They did everything, and I ended up with a very nice settlement and a new car. Thank you! You exceeded my expectations!”


Car Accident

Unfortunately, these types of accidents are common in California.

Anyone can be hurt in an accident caused by a motor vehicle defect. The driver of the vehicle with the defect and their passengers are not always the only people to be injured in an accident. If a car’s brakes fail to function properly and it slams into the back end of a truck at full speed, the truck’s occupants may experience serious injuries.

Other bystanders, such as a pedestrian crossing the street, could also be hurt in an accident caused by a defective motor vehicle part.

If you suspect that a recent accident that you were involved in was caused by a motor vehicle defect, there is very little time to act. Call the May Firm today!

Who Is Responsible?

Determining responsibility in an accident involving a motor vehicle defect
is key in winning your case. If your vehicle is no longer under warranty, you
may experience some difficulty in holding the manufacturer responsible for
your injuries, even if the defect occurred under their watch. If a potential defect
was exasperated by the failure to maintain your vehicle properly, you may also
be unable to hold the manufacturer responsible. However, if an accident occurs
as a result of a motor vehicle defect, the manufacturer may be responsible
for compensating you for your injuries if it should have been reasonably
foreseen or detected.

What Do You Do?

If you were hurt in an accident that you suspect may have been caused by a motor vehicle defect on a California roadway, call the experienced personal injury attorneys at the May Firm right away! Motor vehicle defect cases in California are bound by a statute of limitations that limits the amount of time that you have to file a claim after your accident. If you miss that window of opportunity to file, it will be gone forever!

The attorney who takes on your case will help you to determine, first and foremost, whether your accident was likely caused by a motor vehicle defect. If they determine that there was a motor vehicle defect, your attorney will then help you to determine whether the motor vehicle defect was a result of a recent repair to the vehicle or if the fault lies with the manufacturer. While there may be some recourse if the defect was caused by a negligent repair, there are more opportunities to seek compensation for your injuries if the manufacturer missed a serious problem with the car. Regardless of the origin of the defect, you deserve to be compensated for any medical expenses or property damage resulting from your accident.

If the manufacturer produced a vehicle with a defect that ultimately caused you to end up hurt, you have a right to sue for compensation. The manufacturer should be held liable for the damages to your vehicle, property, medical bills, and any other costs associated with the accident. In addition, you may be able to seek compensation for any lost wages resulting from your inability to work.

If you suspect that your accident and resulting injuries were caused by a motor vehicle defect, get in touch with a licensed California attorney. Because speaking with representatives from an insurance company may ultimately hurt your case, do not contact your insurance company until after you have met with a lawyer. The insurance company is likely going to be unwilling to cover all of the costs of your accident, and litigation may be required to ensure that you are fully and adequately compensated. Before making any attempt to negotiate with an insurance company, call a lawyer!

“The May Firm was able to make a stressful time so much easier. They took care of everything quickly and efficiently. The entire staff was very professional but also friendly and supportive. I would recommend the May Firm to anyone that is looking for an excellent personal injury lawyer.”
