What Should I Do If a Defective Part in My Car Caused a T-bone accident?

When you get in your car, you expect it to work properly. Perhaps most specifically, you expect the braking and steering systems to respond to you in the ways they’re supposed to. You certainly don’t expect your brakes to fail, your steering to fail, your gas tank to explode or one of your tires to blow out.

Unfortunately, however, cars don’t always live up to your very reasonable expectations. When something on yours fails and causes an accident, you have several options.

Product Liability

Product liability is the branch of law that holds manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and retailers who make products available to the public responsible for any injuries those products cause. Your wisest course of action if you suspect that a defective part in your car caused your accident is to contact our experienced t-bone accident lawyer in Phoenix, AZ.

In fact, the burden of proof shifts to the defendant to prove that he or she was not negligent.

In terms of who you can sue, the possibilities include:
