Accidents Involving Defective Vehicles

You can count on a lawyer from our firm

Auto manufacturers are required by law to produce safe, reliable cars. When they don't meet those responsibilities, drivers and passengers get hurt. Some vehicle defects, such as faulty brakes, cause accidents to happen in the first place. Others, such as malfunctioning seat belts and airbags, turn minor collisions into tragedies.

If you were hurt in an auto accident where a defective vehicle was to blame, you're not alone. Recht Law Offices has been helping injured people throughout the Weirton area since 1952. We're not afraid to stand up to auto manufacturers, and we won't rest until you have the compensation you need to move forward.

An accident involving a defective vehicle can lead to an exceptionally complicated legal case. Depending on the circumstances, the manufacturer may be partially or entirely liable for your accident. Another motorist may also be at fault. Every party involved will have their own insurance and their own legal representation. You need Recht Law on your side to level the playing field.

Our family has deep roots in Weirton, and we're passionate about making our community safer by getting defective vehicles and dangerous drivers off the road. When reckless drivers and negligent companies cause people to get hurt, we hold them accountable.

Child Seat Injuries

Auto accidents are the leading cause of childhood death nationwide. That's why manufacturers of child car seats are held to such rigorous standards. Unfortunately, some manufacturers don't meet those guidelines, putting children in danger. Child car seat injuries have been found to be caused by defects in the clips, buckles, detach mechanisms and other factors in their design.

There's nothing worse for a family to endure than an injury to a child. Let our family help yours. We'll help you pursue compensation from the car seat manufacturer as well as the driver who caused your accident. A settlement or verdict can help pay for the treatment and other services your child may need to recover fully from the accident.

Seat Belt and Airbag Injuries

Seat belts and airbags are meant to prevent injuries, and when they function properly, that's exactly what they do. However, design defects in these safety devices can put drivers and passengers in serious danger. Seat belts that fail to restrain properly, whether due to manufacturing defect or poor workmanship by a mechanic, can cause serious injuries such as damage to the internal organs. An airbag that deploys improperly can cause eye damage, broken facial bones or other injuries.

Depending on the circumstances of your accident, fault for your injuries may lie with the original manufacturer or a service technician who made an error while working on or near the seat belt or airbag - as well as the driver who caused the actual collision. That's why you need a thorough attorney on your side. Contact us right away.
