Defective Auto Equipment
More than 6 million motor vehicle accidents occur on U.S. roadways each year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). While some of these auto accidents are caused by driver distraction, fatigue or intoxication, in other cases, vehicle equipment fails and causes serious crashes. In the event that an auto defect plays a role in causing a car accident, injured parties should speak with an attorney about seeking compensation.
