Auto Defects

Las Vegas Auto Defect Lawyer

Representing the Victims of Vehicle Defects

Cars and other motor vehicles are powerful machines that can be dangerous if not manufactured safely and correctly. Not only can an auto defect cause an auto accident, but it can also exacerbate an auto accident that is caused for some other reason, resulting in more significant injuries, damages, or even death.

For more than 30 years, Las Vegas car accident attorney Robert M. Apple has been committed to helping the victims of all types of auto accidents obtain the financial recovery that they deserve. If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a car accident that involved an auto defect, contact our office at (702) 646-0085 to schedule a free consultation with our Las Vegas auto accident lawyer.

Common Types of Auto Defects

Auto defects occur in a number of ways, and happen for a number of different reasons. Some of the most common types of auto defects include:

  • Automobile rollovers
  • Braking system defects
  • Unintended acceleration
  • Defective tires and blowouts
  • Roof collapse (often involved in rollovers)
  • Seat back defects
  • Glass breakage
  • Airbag defects
  • Seatbelt defects
  • Door latch defects
  • Gasoline fires

Claims against Negligent Motorist

In some car accidents, an auto defect may exacerbate the accident or resulting injuries, but a negligent motorist may also be responsible for the auto accident. If this is the case, the negligent motorist could be held liable in a personal injury lawsuit for resulting injuries, damages, or deaths.

Claims against Auto Manufacturers

Auto manufacturers are obligated to design, manufacture, and market safe vehicles. If they become aware of an auto defect, they are expected to promptly notify consumers and take the necessary actions to remedy the defect. If the auto maker fails to do so, it could be held liable for any damages, injuries, and deaths that occur as a result of a defective vehicle.
