Defective Vehicle Attorneys in Atlanta & Marietta Representing Clients Throughout Georgia

At Ashby Thelen Lowry, our Atlanta & Marietta defective vehicle lawyers know that sometimes auto manufacturing failures are obvious, like when your airbags fail to deploy during a collision, causing significant injuries to you and your passengers.

Other times they are hidden from 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 the consumer 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 that caused your harm. They help explain to a jury how it happened, and why it should never have happened in the first place.

What are the Most Common Types of Vehicle Defects in Georgia?

If you were injured or lost a loved one because of a vehicle defect, you know as well as we do that there is nothing “common” about the traumatic incident. Unfortunately, these scenarios happen more often than vehicle manufacturers will admit.

The most common types of vehicle defects include, but are not limited to:

  • Airbag Defects.
  • Crash Avoidance Technology.
  • Electrical System Defects.
  • False Park Defects.
  • Fires Caused by Crashes or Internal Defects.
  • Rollovers, including Ejection and Roof Crush Injuries.
  • Safety System Failures, including Electronic Stability Control.
  • Seat Belt Defects.
  • Seat Failures and Defects.
  • Tire Blowouts.
  • Tractor-Trailer Fires Caused by Defective Fuel Tank Exposure.
  • Vehicles Allowed to Travel Underneath Tractor-Trailers During Crashes Because of the Unsafe Trailer Design.

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.

When Should I Hire an Experienced Georgia Defective Vehicle Attorney?

There are multiple reasons why defective vehicle victims should have their injuries evaluated by a legal specialist in Georgia.

They include:

  • 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, although they were probably wearing their seat belt.

These injurious circumstances can occur in:

  • All-Terrain Vehicles.
  • Autonomous Vehicles.
  • Boats and Other Watercraft
  • Commercial Vehicles
  • Motorcycles
  • Passenger Vehicles, including Cars, Trucks & SUVs
  • Recreational Vehicles
  • Vans

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

We often pursue these cases beyond the courtroom to help ensure that manufacturers recall unsafe products and protect others who will be injured in the future. We work with government entities and industry organizations to hold manufacturers accountable to regulators and to their 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.

When a client retains us, our goal is to be at their service for life, and that service usually starts at the most awful moment of their life — when they need a catastrophic injury attorney like us.

It is our honor, and our passion, to serve.
