Chicago Motor Vehicle Defects Attorneys

Illinois Auto Products Liability Lawyers

When a motor vehicle accident occurs, whether it is a car, truck or motorcycle, it is critical for the participants in the accident to determine the root cause of that accident. A number of collisions can be traced back to driver inattention or bad weather, but a surprising number of accidents may contain another component as well: motor vehicle defects. If you or someone in your family has been injured due to the poor manufacture, design or maintenance of a motor vehicle, it is essential to work with lawyers who understand how to litigate and win cases such as these.

How to Survive Motor Vehicle Defects

Here at Cavanagh Law Group, we are experts in the field of motor vehicle injury law, and that includes a strong understanding of the many complex details involved. Crashes such as these are often caused by issues such as faulty brakes, defective air bags, defective seat belts, roll bar failures or tire tread separation. It takes a keen forensic eye and considerable experience in this field to properly assign the role of each factor as you work to understand what happened, and that means you simply need personal injury attorneys who can do the kind of preparation involved.

We Get Motor Vehicle Cases Right

There are several things that can go wrong with an automobile. Some of the types of cases we handle include:

  • Seat belt failures — where the seat belt fails to hold passengers
  • Air bag failures — where the air bag fails to inflate
  • Tire failures — where the tires fail under normal driving conditions
  • Equipment defect — where the product design overlooked safety concerns

Some of our major motor vehicle defect settlements include:

  • Munoz v. Mack Trucks, et al.,
    Resulted in a total settlement of $3,000,000
    — A 32-year-old employee at Waste Management suffered amputation of his leg below the knee after his leg was caught in between the arm and cab of a dump truck. A products liability lawsuit was filed alleging that the truck was designed defectively because the pinch point was not protected.
