What are the most dangerous automobile defects?

| Apr 20, 2016 | Products Liability |

Any Georgian driver such as yourself may one day have to deal with defective automobiles or auto parts. These broken or damaged products can even lead to accidents, depending on their severity.

One of the most common defects involves tires. Whether the rubber is too thin, or the tire is not formed properly, tire defects can often lead to uneven tread wear. This can cause your braking to be less effective than it should be. Some tires may even be more susceptible to bursting, which can cause its own slew of problems.

However, while tire issues are dangerous, some of the most fatal defects are the ones involving seat belt failure. As the seat belt is in place to protect the passengers, a faulty one could result in injury or even death. For example, a defective seat belt may release upon impact, causing you to collide with the dashboard or windshield. In some cases, the seat belt has even been known to strangle drivers or passengers by not releasing after a crash.

Finally, some cars are built defectively in a way that makes them more likely to roll over in an accident. The rate of rollover fatalities is high compared to other types of accidents, making them even more dangerous.

Many defective auto parts or automobiles are recalled after their dangers have been reported. If you have a vehicle with parts that have been recalled, do not wait to replace them.
