You Deserve Compensation for Your Injuries
You use your car day in and day out – it is an integral part of your everyday life. As such, you put a lot of trust in the manufacturers and designers who produced your car.

Our firm is committed to standing up for consumers and helping them seek justice for the damages they have suffered at the hands of large corporations and manufacturers.
Causes of Auto Defects
A lot happens to a vehicle before you purchase it and drive it home, from the initial design phase to the time spent building the car to the shipment and delivery to a dealership. At any stage of this process, a single mistake or instance of carelessness could spell disaster for the consumer.
Auto defects may be caused by:
- Faulty manufacturing
- Unsafe product designs
- Shipping and distribution problems
- Lack of adequate warnings
- Unsatisfactory product testing
Examples of these auto defects include the GM ignition defect, Takata’s defective airbags, and Toyota’s faulty brakes. Our team at Ashcraft & Gerel has experience helping the victims of these defective products file lawsuits and seek compensation. We are passionate about holding manufacturers accountable for the vehicles they sell to innocent consumers.
