There are many possible negligent parties in a defective vehicle case
Nearly any component of a vehicle, whether yours or another driver's, can lead to injury when it doesn't do its job. Some defects, such as issues with the brakes or steering, make a collision more likely to happen in the first place; others, such as defective seatbelts and airbags, cause more serious injuries when there is a collision. These are often called "crashworthiness" claims, and they can involve pursuing compensation from several sources, including:
- The manufacturer of the vehicle itself
- The manufacturer of a specific part
- The dealer that sold the defective vehicle
- A mechanic or other professional who worked on the vehicle
The driver of the vehicle that crashed into yours may also be partially responsible. This can lead to situations where liability is disputed between several negligent parties while you are caught in the middle, waiting for the compensation you need to rebuild your life.
