Defective Car Door Latches – An Accident Waiting To Happen
Door latches are the first line of defense when it comes to car accidents. This is because they prevent ejections which can end fatally as well as contact with the outside such as the road, trees and other elements such as fire due to an exploding car shortly after an accident. Defective car latches are usually due to a manufacturing defect which usually points to manufacturer negligence. If you were injured in an accident due to a defective door latch, you may be able to sue and collect money damages.
Here are some of the conditions you must meet in order to collect money damages due to door latch failure:
- The company which manufactured it failed to meet door latch safety standards as required by the NHTSA.
- The defective door latch directly caused injuries on your person by your door flying open, ejecting part of or your whole body out of the car.
It’s not uncommon for car manufacturers to hand over parts of the car assembly to another company. Because of this, there might be multiple defendants named in your suit, increasing the amount you can collect as compensation. That being said, you want to make sure that you’re working with a good defective product attorney who can go up against billion dollar car companies and their armies of lawyers. Don’t go it alone, and don’t consider accepting a low offer from insurance companies to make things go away. You deserve the maximum amount of compensation as laid down by the law, so call us today on 877-561-3004 so we can get this for you.
Immediately after an accident, you should seek treatment and document everything, however minor. This paper trail will add to the weight of your case and make it that much easier to get compensated. An accident such as this one can set you back especially when it comes to things like medical bills, lost wages, therapy and car damage, so you should sue for the highest amount possible.
