It seems like car companies are constantly offering new safety features. We are told to relax knowing these devices will keep us protected in the event of a major accident. Of course, promises made in advertisements are not always kept. When a car is poorly designed or haphazardly built, it can be very dangerous for its passengers and anyone else nearby.

Unseen Dangers

Our country’s legal regulations about manufacturing vehicle inspections cannot always ensure that every car is safe. What they can do is weed out obvious defects, leaving the ones that are much harder for even a trained expert to spot. As a result, defects like the ones below are often not spotted until after they have caused major accidents:

  • Seat Belt Defects
  • Brake Malfunctions
  • Tire Defects
  • Air Bag Defects
  • Child Car Seat Defects

Filing a legal claim with the assistance of a Tampa Bay car defect lawyer can do more than help you win compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and so on. Doing so will also send a message that companies need to carefully test products or otherwise face consequences for causing injuries to consumers.
