Injuries Caused By Car Defects

At Garmer & Prather, in Lexington, Kentucky, we are experienced personal injury attorneys with a record of success in serious product liability matters. We represent the victims of accidents caused by a variety of motor vehicle defects, including:

  • Defective air bags that fail to deploy safely, or that deploy unnecessarily
  • Roof crushes caused by structural deficiencies
  • Vehicle fires
  • Defective seat belts
  • Rollovers
  • Faulty brakes
  • Steering and transmission defects
  • Vehicle recalls and failure to recall

It is often difficult to tell when a defective component contributed to a motor vehicle accident. Fortunately, our attorneys have decades of combined experience handling complex cases. We are skilled at interpreting the evidence, investigating the cause of the action and advising you of the best possible strategy to succeed on your claim.

Our many successes in auto defect claims include victories on the behalf of:

  • A young child who died when he was struck in a highway rest area by a wheel which came off an 18-wheeler going down the highway

  • A heavy equipment operator who died when the end loader he was driving, which did not have a rollover protection structure, rolled over on him

  • A young man who died of his burns when his vehicle caught fire in a collision because of a defectively engineered fuel line

  • A man who suffers quadriplegia as a result of his seat belt spooling out in a low speed collision

Holding Manufacturers Accountable

No one deserves the physical pain, emotional trauma and financial stress that accompany a preventable accident involving a defective vehicle. Our attorneys are committed to helping you recover from serious vehicle accidents while doing everything possible to prevent the same thing from happening again to another victim.

Pursuing a claim in civil court can be vital in holding auto manufacturers accountable and improving vehicle safety in the future.
