Auto Product Liability Attorneys in Colorado Springs

Holding Negligent Auto Manufacturers Accountable

Every year, hundreds of lives are claimed in Colorado car accidents. According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, at least 554 lives were lost in Colorado in 2020 alone. Another 545 fatalities from car accidents occurred the previous year. Of these statistics, many injuries and deaths are attributed to defective auto parts.

Types of Auto Product Liability Claims

Product liability claims are unique in the way that they are handled because the type of claim filed will depend on the nature of the accident that occurred. From a wobbly motorcycle that cannot safely sustain high speeds, to a hefty SUV that is prone to rolling over, any number of incidents could ultimately result in an accident. If you are unsure whether you have a valid auto product liability claim, speak with a car accident attorney about the circumstances surrounding their accident.

We can carefully evaluate your claim with questions such as:

  1. Was the vehicle manufactured defectively, or was it manufactured using defective parts?

  2. Was the vehicle's design unreasonably dangerous?

Generally speaking, there are two types of auto product liability claims: those that claim defective manufacturing / defective parts, and those that claim an unreasonably dangerous design. If it can be proven that your automobile was manufactured using defective or unsafe parts, or it was manufactured in an unsafe facility, you have the right to make a claim based upon defective manufacturing. If, on the other hand, it can be proven that your accident resulted from an inherent flaw in the design of your vehicle, you will instead claim that an unreasonably dangerous design is to blame for the injury accident.

Common Auto Defects

There are a variety of ways that an auto part, or a vehicle itself, can be defective. Our attorneys have worked with many clients who have suffered serious injuries due to an automotive defect. In our experience, some of the most commonly defective parts include:

  • Brake systems
  • Seatbelts
  • Seatbacks
  • Windows
  • Airbags
  • Tires
  • Fuel pumps
  • Roofs
