Motor Vehicle Defect: When an Attorney's Guidance is Needed

When a car or truck accident causes injury, police and other observers often assume that a traffic violation was to blame. Perhaps a driver was speeding or distracted by a cellphone, or made an illegal lane change. The accident may have been the result of poor road conditions, weather or traffic congestion. In any of these scenarios, a prompt investigation will often determine the cause of a crash without much difficulty. But in many cases, the cause is found not to be a driver's mistake but a motor vehicle defect.

Did A Defective Car Part Exacerbate A Minor Traffic Accident, Resulting In Serious Injury?

What is not always so straightforward is a complete understanding of all factors contributing to serious injuries. Defective car or truck parts may play a key role in how seriously occupants are injured. A broken bone or a bruised rib cage or back may be painful and inconvenient, but can heal over time. A spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury, on the other hand, is likely to leave a sufferer with permanent disabilities. Bowles & Verna LLP takes on the most serious injury cases involving defective car parts.

What if the difference between a minor injury and a catastrophic injury is a car without defect versus a car with bad seat belts, tires or brakes? That is one of the questions Bowles & Verna LLP will consider if we represent you after a serious traffic accident in California.

In order to determine whether your car or another driver's car had a defect, it will be necessary for an expert to inspect the crashed vehicle. This is one of the most compelling reasons to contact a personal injury lawyer right away after a serious or catastrophic injury. If we do not secure the crashed vehicle in time, it may be junked or sold at auction — and valuable evidence may be gone forever.

To increase the likelihood of a successful car accident-related injury claim or lawsuit, contact an attorney promptly. Bowles & Verna LLP is prepared to act with urgency if your case merits a fast-tracked investigation.
