Vehicle manufacturers have a duty to consumers to make safe products that are free from dangerous defects. If you or a loved one has been injured by a motor vehicle safety defect, you may have a personal injury case against the manufacturer. These cases can carry serious punitive damages against the car manufacturer because the courts want to not only punish the company for selling a dangerous product, but also to encourage companies to make products safer for consumers.
Martin Law Office, S.C., in Wisconsin represents people who have been injured due to vehicles with safety issues. Our motor vehicle recall attorneys can help you seek full and fair compensation when you’ve been seriously injured.
Unlike other personal injury claims where you must show that the other party was negligent to file a lawsuit, you do not need to prove negligence or carelessness when your injury involves a vehicle manufacturer as long as three factors are true:
1. Some part of the vehicle that should not have been dangerous caused your injuries.
2. Your injury resulted when you were using the vehicle as any reasonable person would expect to use it.
3. You did not alter the vehicle after it was purchased and in a way that would affect its functionality.
If you have been injured due to a vehicle safety recall accident, you need a personal injury lawyer who understands how to pursue these unique injury claims. Contact Martin Law Office, S.C., for compassionate advocacy and the medical wherewithal to seek comprehensive damages in your case.
