Attorney Assisting With Injuries Caused By Defective Products in El Paso, Texas and New Mexico

In the United States, most people spend a significant percentage of their daily lives either behind the wheel or riding as a passenger in a motor vehicle. We rely on these vehicles to keep us safe, but when the parts, systems, or equipment in a car or truck do not function correctly, dangerous car wrecks can occur, and drivers and passengers can be seriously injured.

If you have been involved in a car crash that was caused by defective auto parts, James Kennedy, P.L.L.C. can help you pursue compensation from a negligent manufacturer. As a lawyer who is Board Certified in personal injury trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, James Kennedy understands the legal issues involved in product liability cases. He has taken cases to trial in every year of his over 25 years of experience, and he is ready to fight for you to receive the full and fair compensation you deserve.

Common Vehicle Defects

Every motor vehicle utilizes hundreds of parts, and the failure of any one of these systems can have dangerous or deadly results. Some defective auto parts that can cause safety issues include:

  • Tires - Blowouts can be incredibly dangerous when they occur at high speeds, and exploding tires can result in rollover accidents.
  • Brakes - If a driver is unable to slow down or stop, they may be unable to avoid a collision. Defective brake pads or rotors, malfunctioning anti-lock brake systems, and truck air brakes that do not function properly can all lead to deadly crashes.
  • Engines - Defective fans, coolant systems, bearings, or lubrication can cause an engine to overheat and catch on fire, which may result in burn injuries for drivers or passengers.
  • Accelerators - Defects in electronic systems can cause a car to accelerate suddenly and unexpectedly, and drivers may be unable to avoid colliding with other vehicles or pedestrians.
  • Stability systems - Many newer vehicles contain computerized stability control systems that are meant to provide safety in certain situations, such as when a road has low traction. The failure of these systems can cause a person to lose control of their vehicle, leading to dangerous car wrecks.
  • Airbags - These devices are meant to provide safety to a vehicle's occupants, but some defective airbags have been known to explode when deployed, causing injuries or wrongful death when drivers or passengers are struck by shrapnel.
  • Seat belts - The law requires drivers and passengers to fasten their seat belts, but while these devices can save lives, they can cause injuries such as whiplash or traumatic brain injuries if they are defective.
  • Truck parts - Due to their large size and weight, semi-trailer trucks must be regularly inspected to ensure that all systems are working properly. Defects in systems such as trailer couplings or equipment used to secure loads can lead to dangerous truck wrecks.
