Defective automotive products / product liability cases
At the Orlando, Florida-based law firm of the Bodiford Law Group, our attorneys work tirelessly to obtain justice for
people injured in accidents that result from a wide variety of auto manufacturing and design defects, such as tire
blowouts, defective seat belts and door latches.
Most motor vehicles are safely designed and carefully manufactured. Some, however, are made with lower quality
parts and materials, or improperly designed. Poorly designed or defectively produced vehicles are dangerous and
can cause serious injury or death.
Automobile product liability cases are highly complex to litigate. A successful outcome usually requires an excellent
understanding of automotive engineering and the manufacturing industry, comprehensive knowledge of the laws
applying to the case, and a thorough understanding of past auto liability cases.
When investigating these cases, the victim's law firm must assemble a specialized team of design engineers,
investigators, doctors and specialists to thoroughly determine exactly what caused the crash, and just as
importantly, the injuries.
The most important concept in vehicle defect liability cases is "crashworthiness". Crashworthiness is the ability of a
vehicle to prevent injuries to the occupants in the event of a collision. During a collision, a vehicle's occupants are
subject to a number of forces that can result in injury, including rapid deceleration and rapid acceleration,
depending on the direction of impact in the collision. Crashworthiness deals primarily with the 'second collision' that
results from these forces, in which the driver and passengers collide against the interior of the vehicle. An vehicle
having effective 'crashworthy' design will distribute these injurious forces over as great a period of time and
distance as possible, as well as directing them to parts of the body that are more capable of withstanding them.
Understanding how the damages and injuries occurred is only the first step. The ability to apply the law and identify
who may be held liable for damages is the second step.
Lastly, the ability to successfully litigate the claim is crucial. This requires the ability to build a proper case and
defeat the manufacturer, who will vigorously defend any lawsuit which questions the safety of their products.
