The 3 Parties in a Car Failure Accident | McKay Law

The 3 Parties Commonly Responsible for a Car Failure Accident

Table of Contents

When a car malfunction leads to a car failure accident, it might be challenging to determine who is to blame.

Drivers are responsible for maintaining the safety of their cars. However, even a motorist who is meticulous about maintenance can have a car failure accident if their mechanic makes a mistake or if the manufacturer sends a defective item to their repair. In this type of collision, determining and later establishing liability may necessitate extensive professional crash reconstruction and investigation.

If you were in a car failure accident and believe it was caused by a mechanical failure, you should contact an experienced automotive product defect attorney as soon as possible.

Which 3 Parties Are Most Often To Blame for a Car Failure Accident?

We might have avoided many accidents caused by vehicle component failure if everyone had exercised proper caution along the route. In most of these collisions, one of the three individuals made a reckless error that contributed to the crash. Your product liability lawyers may concentrate their inquiry on the following three individuals:

Driver

The driver (or the vehicle’s owner) is responsible for completing repairs and routine maintenance to keep the car safe. If a driver knows his vehicle is hazardous – for example, if he sees indicators of approaching brake failure – and continues to drive without making the necessary repairs, this is likely to be considered negligent behavior.

Mechanic

People go to mechanics and body shops because they want the job done correctly and professionally. Unfortunately, this can backfire at times. Not all auto shops take the necessary precautions. Sometimes the wrong part is installed, or the right part is placed wrongly. These examples can result in a critical breakdown at an inconvenient time, resulting in a collision.

Manufacturer

Even though the driver performed routine maintenance and his mechanic did everything right, a vehicle malfunction can occur if a vehicle component is incorrect. When it is unclear what went wrong in a car failure accident like this, it can be perplexing for everyone concerned.

It can be difficult to identify the defective part and demonstrate that it was not in working order when it arrived at the auto shop. Still, it is possible because the way this sort of claim is handled may change slightly according to product liability law.

A motorist aware that he has made a mistake may potentially attempt to blame the accident on mechanical failure. When this occurs, the cover story is likely to fall apart when investigated further.

Therefore, it is advisable to contact an attorney as quickly as possible following a collision involving mechanical breakdown to preserve every evidence as soon as feasible.
