Auto Defect Accidents

Focused on Client Needs Since 1946


Dangerous Tires, Defective Airbags and Seatbelts

A car’s design or a manufacturing defect can cause an accident or make the injuries sustained in an accident far worse than they should have been. When an auto defect causes an accident, that issue can sometimes be overlooked when determining liability for injuries or wrongful death.

Product Liability Lawyers

When the lawyers at Gray Ritter Graham in St. Louis investigate a car accident, we look at all possible causes in order to maximize our clients’ compensation. If an auto defect caused serious injury or wrongful death, we hold the manufacturer accountable.

In any car accident case we handle, our investigators look for all possible causes. Because of our experience litigating product liability cases, we know how to recognize auto defects including:

  • Defective tires: Using defective materials or failing to monitor the heating process during manufacturing can result in a defective tire. If that tire blows out and causes an accident, or if the tire blows out during an accident, talk to one of the GRG lawyers, who have experience with product liability cases.
  • Defective airbags: An airbag malfunction, seatbelt failure, or any automotive equipment failure can place a car’s driver and passengers at risk. In many cases, the manufacturer knew or should have known the dangers of the auto defect.
  • Defective brakes: Failed brakes often go unnoticed until it is too late to prevent an accident. Our lawyers are prepared to hold designers, manufacturers and distributors accountable for the damage caused by defective brake failure.
  • Defective seat backs: Defects in a vehicle’s seat back can result in inadequate protection that leads to catastrophic consequences such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and back injuries.

In a Serious Car Accident, It Is Essential to Obtain Fair Compensation
