California Defective Automobile Attorneys
When a car manufacturer designs and builds a car, it has an obligation to assure the car will offer protection to the driver and passengers in a car crash. Not all injuries can be stopped, but when a defective auto component or safety device, seat belt, airbag or other component causes a fatal injury, people have a right to compensation. If a loved one has been killed in an accident involving a defective auto, the family has a wrongful death claim against the auto manufacturer.

Examples of Our Success
SUV Rollover Due to Defective Suspension Part - Death of 32-Year-Old Woman
Our automobile product liability lawyers negotiated a multimillion-dollar confidential settlement on behalf of an SUV passenger who was ejected from her vehicle when it rolled while traveling at 70 miles per hour on Highway 580 in Alameda County. Our client claimed that the vehicle lost control when a component of the front suspension became disconnected, causing the driver to make contact with the center median, lose steering input and tumble end over end for 300 feet. Our client's wife was ejected and died in the collision, leaving him to care for their 8-year-old son. Our investigation revealed that the suspension component that failed was subsequently recalled by the manufacturer.
