Cars are complex pieces of machinery. There are many moving parts and software products that are all supposed to interact in ways that give the driver and passengers a safe driving experience.

We understand your case is unique and aggressively pursue compensation that fully and fairly reimburses your for your injuries.
An example of a car part that can malfunction and cause an accident can be seen in a recent recall of automobiles. Honda recently recalled approximately 344,000 of their Odyssey minivan models due to a braking glitch. The issue was that:
- The software related to the braking system caused the vehicle to suddenly brake, even without the driver’s applying pressure to the brake pedal
- The fix needed includes a sensor not yet available
- Until the necessary part is available, the minivans are being recalled
While there have yet to be any reports of accidents caused by this defect, this story illustrates one of the many ways a car can fail to perform and cause an injury. Other examples include faulty seatbelts and other safety restraint systems, problems with rollovers and exploding gas tanks. The makers of automobiles owe the public a duty to manufacture a car that performs safely. When vehicles perform unsafely, injuries occurring in an accident can be catastrophic. Burns, broken bones, sprains, bruises, neck and spinal cord injuries and even death may result from a defective vehicle. Compensation is available to those injured in these circumstances. Our legal team is proficient in analyzing the facts of an accident and seeking compensation from all responsible parties and entities. We know how to determine the cause of an accident, identify the negligent parties and hold them responsible for the injuries caused.
