Car Accidents, Vehicle Defects and Product Liability Claims in Ohio

PDF Print

Drivers are not the only causes of automotive accidents. Many vehicle accidents in Ohio are caused by vehicle defects, including faulty seat belts, brakes and other mechanical parts. If an accident is caused in full or in part by a vehicle defect, the automobile manufacturer may be liable under product liability laws for any injuries caused by the accident.

  • Common vehicle defects include:
  • Defective Airbags;
  • Defective Seatbelts;
  • Defective Tires;
  • Improper or Defective Child Restraint Systems;
  • Insufficient Structural Integrity; and
  • Top-Heavy Design with High Probability of Rollover.

In order to bring a product liability claim against an automobile or automotive part manufacturer, you must prove that the defective part caused physical injury to a consumer or user. Manufacturers need not be negligent to be liable for the injury associated with a defective product. If the product is shown to have been defective in design, manufacture or labeling, the manufacturer can be held liable for any injuries that result out of the product’s use.

Product liability claims require thorough documentation and investigation. If you believe you were injured in an automobile accident caused by a vehicle defect or defective automotive part, you should seek the assistance of a qualified personal injury attorney to ensure that the appropriate steps are followed to competently prepare your case.
