When Defective Vehicles Cause Serious Accidents

Did you know that automobile defects are one of the top causes of car accidents in the U.S.? Were you aware that you might be able to sue the vehicle manufacturer if a design defect caused your motor vehicle accident? Do you understand the concept of punitive damages?

Learn About Your Options After A Vehicle Accident In Missouri

At the Kansas City law firm of Norton & Norfleet, P.C., our attorneys have more than 60 years of experience handling personal injury lawsuits for accident victims in Missouri. During that time, we have established a high success rate of wins for our clients at trials and at the negotiation and settlement tables. We will explain your legal options and guide you toward the best possible outcome for your case.

If you were injured in any type of motor vehicle accident, you probably know you may be entitled to compensation for your losses from the other driver's insurance company and from your own (if the other driver is underinsured). However, if your accident or injuries were due to a defect, you may be entitled to additional compensation.

Automobile Defects May Lead To More Compensation For Accident Victims

No amount of money can ever make up for what you have lost in a serious car or truck accident. However, a financial award from a lawsuit can help you pay for your future medical care and can compensate you for lost income if your ability to do your work is impaired.

When a defective automobile or auto part is at fault for your injuries, you may be entitled to additional compensation from the manufacturer, dealer or both. The most common defects include:

  • Defective or dangerous parts
  • Design flaws
  • Manufacturing mistakes
  • Damage during delivery to the auto dealer

A skilled Kansas City auto accident lawyer will help you determine if a defect is partly or wholly to blame for your injuries. If it is, you may be able to receive punitive damages — financial awards that punish manufacturers in order to force them to prevent or fix inherent dangerous defects.
