Automobile Accidents and Defective Vehicles in New York, New York

Defective vehicles can cause accidents that result in catastrophic injuries that may include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, multiple fractures, severe burns and deaths. Automobile manufacturers can be held legally liable for these injuries and deaths when a defective vehicle is involved.

Many automobile accident injuries and deaths are caused by defective vehicles and defective vehicle parts. Automobile manufacturers have a legal and moral obligation to ensure their vehicles are crashworthy and can protect the occupants in the event of a collision. Unfortunately, many vehicles rollover too easily, have inadequate roof supports, defective airbags and seatbelts, faulty ignitions, malfunctioning brakes and gas pedals and other safety defects.

Defective vehicle accident victims are often not aware that a defective vehicle or defective car part may have caused their accident. Indications that a defective vehicle or defective part may have caused your accident is the vehicle rolled over, the roof collapsed, there was a fire or explosion immediately following the crash, a tire failed, the car doors came open during the accident, you were thrown from the vehicle or airbags did not deploy.

The Cochran Firm fights for the rights of our clients and we believe every automobile accident should be investigated to determine if defects in the vehicle caused the accident and contributed to the injuries or wrongful deaths.

If you believe you have been the victim of an accident caused by a defective vehicle, please contact the New York office of The Cochran Firm today to learn how to protect your legal rights and whether you are entitled to financial compensation.
