Who is liable for accidents caused by auto defects?

If major auto parts malfunction while in use, it can lead to serious car accidents. In these situations, injured motorists may be eligible to take legal action and seek compensation for their damages. However, it can be difficult to determine who is at fault for the defective auto part. In most cases, the vehicle’s manufacturer bears the largest responsibility for the flawed part. However, sometimes other parties can be held accountable for the accident, such as if an auto shop’s incorrect installation of a part led to the defect and subsequent accident.

If you or someone you love has been injured because of an auto defect, there may be legal options available to pursue compensation for the costs associated with these injuries.
