Fort Myers Defective Product Lawyer Holding Manufacturers Liable for Accidents Caused by Automobile Defects in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Port Charlotte and Naples
An automobile defect may cause a crash or exacerbate injuries resulting from a collision. In both these scenarios, the manufacturer of the faulty part is liable. In the immediate aftermath of a crash, you may not realize that an auto defect played a role in your injuries. Often, the defect is not obvious and the manufacturer has taken steps to conceal the problem from the public. This is why you should seek legal counsel with an experienced Fort Myers defective product lawyer as soon as practicable.

Recall of Defective Vehicles
Under our current system, manufacturers are responsible for producing safe vehicles, for notifying the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) about problems that they discover and for recalling unsafe vehicles and/or parts. However, this system is severely flawed. The costs of disclosing safety problems and issuing recalls are enormous. Therefore, auto manufacturers often weigh the risks of being caught with the costs of protecting the public. Furthermore, consumers may not know that their vehicle make and model is under recall and may not have access to repairs once they do learn of the auto defect.
Our attorneys scrutinize the recall process of the vehicle manufacturer. We review evidence to answer whether the automaker:
- Created the defect as a cost-saving measure, despite evidence of safety risks
- Discovered the dangerous condition caused by its product
- Immediately notified vehicle owners about the danger
- Recalled the vehicles in a timely manner and provided access to quick repairs
- Concealed information that would have disclosed the defect and risk of harm
Defects in Automobiles
Our law firm has the resources and experience to pursue complex litigation against multinational auto manufacturing corporations, including class actions or multi-district litigation.

- Ignition switch failure (General Motors)
- Defective airbags (Takata)
- Keyless fob carbon monoxide poisoning
- Tire failure
