Automobile Accidents and Defective Vehicles in San Francisco/Oakland, California

Vehicle manufacturers have an obligation to consumers to provide a safe vehicle for drivers and their passengers. Not all accidents can be avoided, but when a defective vehicle causes a serious or fatal injury, you have a legal right to financial compensation. If a loved one is killed in a motor vehicle accident involving a defective vehicle, the family should file a wrongful death claim against the motor vehicle manufacturer.

Defective vehicles are the result of design faults, manufacturing or material faults or the desire of the manufacturer to attempt to hold down costs with inferior or careless manufacturing practices.

Some defective vehicles have caused SUV rollovers, seatbelt or airbag failures, seatback failures, brake malfunctions, unwanted gas pedal acceleration, tire failures and fuel system fires and leaks. Defective vehicles can cause automobile accidents that result in horrific injuries including traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, amputations, fractures and severe burns and even death.

The Cochran Firm will work for you to hold the vehicle manufacturers accountable for your serious injuries or the wrongful death of a family member and have recovered financial compensation on behalf of their clients for many years. We are available to discuss your accident, we will explain your options and we will help you decide the proper action to take.
