Kent Mechanical Defects Attorney

We rarely think twice when we step into a car that requires thousands of mechanical parts working together to get us where we are going, but when one of those mechanical parts fails due to a manufacturing or factory defect, the result can be catastrophic.

Not all accidents are caused by driver error or recklessness. Some accidents may directly result from a mechanical defect in your vehicle or a defect in another vehicle that causes a collision with your car. In Washington’s comparative negligence auto insurance system, investigating fault and liability in an accident is a critical part of filing a claim to recover damages.

A Kent Car Accident attorney with experience in mechanical defects liability understands exactly how to prove fault on the part of the car manufacturer, parts manufacturer, dealership, or maintenance/repair company so you can hold them accountable for your serious injury. 

The accident and injury lawyers at Caffee Law realize that you shouldn’t have to bear the burden of expenses related to an accident caused by a mechanical defect you couldn’t control. Contact our Kent law firm today so we can pursue full compensation for your accident-related injury costs, as well as for your pain and suffering.

Dangerous Defects in Mechanical Car Parts

When a mechanical defect causes the failure of critical equipment in a motor vehicle, the results can have life-altering consequences. Some sadly common accident or injury-causing defects in car parts and equipment include:

  • Break malfunctions
  • Steering system malfunctions
  • Defective seat belts
  • Defective headlights or taillights
  • Defective airbag system
  • Tire defects

Even a seemingly insignificant mechanical defect in a car or truck, such as windshield wiper failure, can result in a devastating car accident. After an accident caused by a defective mechanical part, you or a loved one could have serious or even catastrophic injuries with life-altering consequences. Even less serious injuries may require expensive medical treatment, painful procedures, and time away from work. Bills may be coming in while your paychecks are not, causing serious financial stress just when you need all your energy focused on your recovery. At Caffee Law, we focus our energy on achieving the results you need from your claim for compensation so you can focus on healing.

Product Liability and Mechanical Defects

When a manufacturer produces a part that has a serious defect—either a design flaw or an assembly error—then the manufacturer is liable for the damages when the part causes an accident. An attorney with experience in product liability claims can prove liability on the part of the at-fault entity by showing the following legal points of liability:

  • That the at-fault party owed a duty of care to keep you and others safe on the road by producing and assembling safe, reliable parts
  • That they breached this duty by an act of negligence
  • That the breach directly caused your injury
  • That the injury caused you significant economic and non-economic damages

When an at-fault party is liable in an accident, they must provide compensation for your damages, typically paid through their insurance policy.
