Auto Products Liability Attorneys in Baltimore
Representing the Injured Victims of Defective Automobiles
Cars are a vital part of our day-to-day lives. We rely on them to transport us to work, to school, to the grocery store, and everywhere in between. Many of us, however, fail to consider the significant amount of trust we place in car manufacturers, designers, and other parties involved in making and selling cars.
To the consumer’s detriment, many auto manufacturers fail to produce cars that meet an acceptable standard of safety. Too often, the cars they produce are defective, causing devastating injury and even death in the worst cases.
Have you or has someone you love suffered an injury caused by an automobile design or manufacturing defect? You may have a valid claim. Our Baltimore auto products liability attorneys can assess your situation and determine the best way to pursue justice on your behalf.
Carmakers Must Maintain Safety Protocols
Auto product liability claims are not the same as typical car accident cases. Car accidents caused by negligent drivers will not require the same legal action and process as an accident that can be traced to a flaw in the vehicle itself. In recent years, GM has been sued over an ignition defect, Takata has been sued over faulty airbags, and Toyota has been sued over defective brakes.
Auto defects are often caused by:
- Manufacturing facility error
- Shipping and distribution problems
- Manufacturer’s failure to maintain safety protocols
- Flawed car design
- Improper or negligent product testing procedures
- Failure to provide adequate warnings about potential hazards
When these defects arise and leave innocent consumers injured, it is vital that the legal community holds manufacturers liable for the defective products they profit from. At Ashcraft & Gerel, we take great pride in fighting to protect consumers and make sure manufacturers deliver safe, effective vehicles to the market.
