Florida Vehicle Defect Injuries
In just one year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 30,000 lives were lost as a result of traffic accidents. Most of these were unrelated to defects with the actual vehicle, but even a small percentage of such a large number being related to vehicle defects makes the cost to human life staggering. Of course, fatal crashes are only part of the analysis. Many times the defects cause life-changing injuries to the vehicle’s occupants and those in the immediate vicinity. Examples of vehicle defects would include:
- fuel system problems causing leakage especially after a crash
- accelerator controls (the gas pedal) that could stick due to a poor design
- wheels that break from cracks resulting in a loss of control
- cooling system problems resulting in scalding injuries or serious cuts and abrasions due to fan blade malfunctions
- air bag issues including improper deployment or insufficient triggering
- wiring problems resulting in lighting issues or electrical fires
- child safety restraints that are insufficient or simply fail
- seats or seat backs that fail
- vehicle jacks that fail during maintenance
- tire blowouts due to manufacturing or mounting defects
