California Auto Accidents – Automakers May Be Liable For Defective Parts or Missing Safety Equipment

Sacramento Wrongful Death lawyer

Both the federal government and the courts are increasingly enforcing that automakers improve car safety and be proactive.

This week, after reports concluded that accelerator pedals could become trapped in floor mats, Toyota has recalled more than 2 million cars. The Toyota recall is the result of an ongoing investigation into the Toyota accelerator defect car crashes, which have led to the recall of more than 14 million vehicles worldwide.

Further, the Supreme Court has just ruled that you can sue an automaker for failing to install safety equipment. In a California case seeking damages as the result of a wrongful death car accident, the Supreme Court has determined the family can sue Mazda for failing to install second row shoulder belts, even though it complied with federal safety requirements.

If you have been injured in a California car accident as the result of a defective car part or absence of safety equipment, contact an experienced California personal injury lawyer. A knowledgeable lawyer can review the circumstances surrounding a car accident and determine whether a defective auto part or other factor is at play. Many times, the cause of an accident is not readily apparent, but only discovered after a skilled lawyer conducts a thorough investigation into the collision.

For more information or if you have been harmed in an auto accident, contact the dedicated Sacramento personal injury lawyers at the Law Office of Frederick J. Sette.
