Dedicated Auto Defect Attorneys

When someone is catastrophically injured or killed in a motor vehicle accident, never assume the injuries are just the fault of the driver who caused the accident. Focusing solely on driver negligence ignores the possibility that a vehicle defect caused the accident or made the injuries worse.

Unfortunately, it can be easy for attorneys to focus only on the negligence of the driver and quickly settle a case for the insurance policy limits, which can be as low as $15,000 and miss the real potential to pay for a client’s full recovery.
