Automobile Safety Feature Failure

Motor vehicles are inherently dangerous. Because being in an accident can be fatal, a wide range of automobile safety features have been developed to help keep motorists safe. The safety belt, airbag, and brakes are all important to keeping us safe on the road. Unfortunately, like all mechanisms, they may also be prone to failure.

If you or someone you love has been injured because a safety mechanism failed to function properly, the Cincinnati car accident attorneys of Stepleton Dugan, LLC may be able to help you get the compensation you need. Contact us today at 513-321-7733 for more information.

Potential Car Safety Failures

We rely on car safety features to help prevent serious injury or fatality. Unfortunately, even the most well-designed safety mechanism can fail. Some of the most common safety feature failures include:

  • Seat belts. There have been numerous recalls over the years for faulty seat belts. Some of the most high profile involved clips that ejected from receptacles, belts that did not coil properly, or belts that failed to properly tighten.
  • Airbags. Airbags fail in two diametrically opposite ways: either they deploy when they are unneeded, or they fail to deploy when they are.
  • Brakes. A number of different problems can cause brakes to fail, which can in turn cause serious injury and property damage.

You have a right to expect your car’s safety features to function properly. If they do not, you may be able to seek financial compensation for any resulting injuries.
