Many car accidents occur as a result of reckless or negligent driving. Nearly half of all serious injuries such as traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury take place during motor vehicle accidents. If this has happened to you, contact the car and truck crash lawyers at Ross Feller Casey, today, for a free consultation.
However, negligent driving is not the only underlying cause of serious car accidents or truck crash lawsuits.
Manufacturing defects also can produce unsafe vehicles. SUVs and vans that are top heavy are subject to rollovers. Car roofs sometimes fail to withstand a rollover without crushing. Some air bags don’t operate effectively and open unexpectedly, fail to open, or deploy with too much force. Seat belts, such as lap belts, have been known to cause abdominal injuries and have resulted in severe injuries for children. Problems like this are the leading factor behind many truck accident lawsuits.
Ross Feller Casey’s truck accident attorneys are actively investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of motorists who have suffered serious injuries as a result of recalled General Motors, Ford and Audi vehicles, as well as defective Takata airbags.
The firm is also the leader in train accident litigation and is currently handling several high-profile cases, including one involving the May 2015 Amtrak 188 accident in Philadelphia. To learn more, go to Train Accident Lawsuits.
