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

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
