When you buy a product, you have the right to expect it will be reasonably free from defects and safe to operate when used as intended. This is especially true with a costly consumer product that has the potential to put you at serious risk of harm– such as a motor vehicle.
Cars should be designed to operate in a safe way on the roads to protect drivers, occupants, and other motorists. Unfortunately, in recent years, there have been a record number of vehicles recalled because of serious or even life-threatening defects. Now, the NHTSA is actually warning some motorists to stop driving their vehicles immediately because those cars present an immediate risk to safety.
Car manufacturers, like other product makers or distributers, should be held accountable if the items they sell to consumers cause harm. An Atlanta defective product lawyer should be consulted to provide representation and assistance to victims injured by a dangerous car or other products that cause harm when used as intended.
