Defective Auto Products Attorneys in Atlanta & Marietta, GA

Auto or vehicle defects are some of the most catastrophic kinds of defects.

Defective Auto ProductsSometimes they are obvious (an airbag failing to deploy) but other times they are hidden to the average person, and the tragic injuries are blamed on the incident itself. This is one of the many reasons that an estimated 80+% of product defect cases are never brought or even evaluated. They are missed altogether, with the survivors left to suffer a lifetime of effects from the hidden defect.

To make matters worse, even when a defect is discovered, manufacturers and their insurance companies fight cases harder than almost any other kind of defendant. They will throw hundreds of thousands—and even millions—of dollars at cases to fight you at every turn. They will do whatever it takes to make sure that they come out on top, and that you lose. This is why we employ our nation’s top engineering, automotive, and technical experts to examine the product. They help explain to a jury how it happened, and why it should have never happened in the first place.

Vehicle manufacturers are often some of the most sophisticated manufacturing companies out there. They know what is wrong with their products, and they know how to fix them. But when doing the right thing costs more money than fighting the survivors in court, manufacturers almost always choose to lawyer-up and save money. This is putting profits over public safety, and it’s one of the reasons that we are so passionate about what we do.

At Ashby Thelen Lowry, We Also Focus on The Following Services:

We often pursue these cases beyond the courtroom to help ensure that manufacturers recall unsafe products and protect the others who will be injured in the future. We work with government entities and industry organizations to hold manufacturer accountable with regulators and with their own communities. This is one of many reasons why our work has forced manufacturers to issue four separate recalls in an almost unprecedented fashion; in the middle of litigation.

There are a handful common reasons why you should get a product liability specialist to evaluate your case:

  • When a person was hurt far more than everyone else in the incident or crash
  • When a person was severely injured despite wearing a seat belt
  • When a person was severely injured even though airbags deployed
  • When something seems odd or “off” about the incident or crash in a way that may have made the injuries worse
  • When something happens with a vehicle that should have never happened with a properly working vehicle
  • Unexplained loss of control
  • When a person or any part of their body is ejected from a vehicle but they were probably wearing their seat belt

Manufacturers must ensure that their vehicles are safe for drivers, passengers, and the general public. When they fail to do so, they should be help accountable – especially when they knew this would happen and did nothing about it. We are not afraid to go after these giants to chase down answers and make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
