Understanding New York Defective Vehicle Lawsuits

Whether you buy new or used, cars and other motor vehicles cost a lot of money. In exchange for your money, you are expecting a vehicle that can get you from Point A to Point B safely. Yet, not every vehicle performs according to that expectation. If you have been hurt in a defective vehicle accident, you may be entitled to damages, and a New York defective vehicle attorney may be able to help you recover those damages.

How Can a Vehicle be Defective?

Generally, there are four ways that a vehicle may be defective. There could've been a problem with the:
  • Design of the Vehicle: sometimes the actual design of the vehicle is flawed and will not result in the manufacturing of a safe car.
  • Manufacturing of the Vehicle: other times the design of the vehicle is fine but there is a deviation from the design in the manufacturing process that makes the vehicle defective and dangerous.
  • Warnings Provided with the Vehicle: lack of warnings about potential dangers that are known to the car manufacturers but not the general public can also result in a defective vehicle.
  • Maintenance on the Vehicle: even if the design, manufacturing and warnings on the vehicle are done without any defects, a defect may arise when maintenance or work is done on your car.

Any of these problems can cause a serious accident that results in injuries or fatalities.
