Automotive Product Defects

Auto Product Defect Litigation in Southern California

At Callahan & Blaine, our attorneys go beyond the basics in the investigation of motor vehicle accident claims. We don't consider it sufficient to evaluate the negligence of the other driver from police reports, witness statements or property damage evidence. While we work with accident reconstruction experts for insight into liability and damages issues, we go even further to make sure that our clients' access to the compensation they need is protected as fully as possible.

As a matter of routine, Callahan & Blaine considers every plausible scenario in the search for defendants who can be held legally accountable for their role in a serious or fatal car or truck accident. In some cases, this will lead to a lawsuit against a county or city responsible for safe highway design and maintenance. In other situations, our attention will focus on the manufacturer that produced a defective tire or cruise control system, or on the repair shop that installed a sound component in a negligent manner.

Contact our office in Santa Ana to learn how experienced and successful trial attorneys can add genuine value to an accident victim's negligence claims when they involve highly technical issues of fact and law. Our ability to commit the professional and financial resources necessary to develop automotive product defect claims can represent an important advantage for people who can't look to auto liability coverage to meet the full extent of their losses.

Our lawyers can investigate and assess product defect claims related to such auto components as:

  • Tires and wheels
  • Brake systems
  • Child seats
  • Airbags and seatbelts
  • Body, door and roof structure
  • Fuel systems
  • Cruise control systems

Accidents resulting in death, severe brain trauma or permanent spinal cord injury will usually generate losses far in excess of any available car insurance coverage. Our ability to pursue product defect claims against auto and component manufacturers can help expand your options for full compensation.
