Car wrecks are not always caused by driver negligence. Sometimes the cause of an accident can be traced back to a manufacturing defect or a flaw in the design of the vehicle. You rely on your car’s brakes, tires, steering, accelerator, and other major systems to function in a certain way. When one of these systems fails, the results are often catastrophic.
Hundreds of independent companies are involved in manufacturing the components that make up automobiles. Any company that puts a dangerous product into the stream of commerce can be held responsible for the resulting damages. If you were injured in a car wreck and believe that it was caused by a defective product, reach out to a Pasadena auto accident attorney who will investigate your claim and provide aggressive advocacy.
