17 Nov DEFECTIVE CAR PARTS & INJURY CLAIMS
Posted By Gruenberg Kelly Della || 17-Nov-2017
Defective or dangerously designed car parts can cause severe injuries. Depending on the situation, you may be able to receive compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages from those responsible. Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts are generally higher quality and government-regulated, while after-market parts are not government-regulated and may be cheaper and lower quality. Whether you were injured by OEM parts or by after-market parts, it is important to obtain the legal assistance of our experienced Long Island car accident attorneys as you pursue justice from those responsible.
In order to prove liability, you must show that:
- The car part had a dangerous design or was defective
- The car part directly caused your injuries
While dangerous design relates to how the part was developed and applies to all parts of the same kind, defects relate to mistakes occurring during the manufacturing process. Depending on the situation, you may be able to file a claim against the car manufacturer or against the part manufacturer. You may also be able to hold the car dealership or seller liable. Causation is important to prove, and requires a thorough investigation to gather concrete evidence.
