Holding Auto Parts Manufacturers Liable For Dangerous Defects

Not all car accidents are caused by negligent driving. Some collisions are unavoidable due to hidden dangers in the form of design and automotive defects. Without warning, a tire could explode or an air bag can fail to deploy, resulting in serious injuries and death because of a collision.

Just like inattentive or impaired drivers who cause car accidents, defectively designed and manufactured vehicles present dangers on Missouri roads. Countless rear-end collisions, front-end crashes and rollovers are caused due to the negligence of motor vehicle manufacturers. Some cases reveal that the manufacturer was aware of the defects, but failed to comply with a recall of a specific item or the entire vehicle.

At Kelly, Symonds & Reed, LLC, our experienced personal injury lawyers have handled numerous personal injury cases involving defective auto parts and automotive designs for a variety of motor vehicles. We've seen the devastation manufacturer negligence can cause, which is why we fight to secure full and fair compensation for our clients and their families.

Our top priority is your well-being. We take on any and all opponents, regardless of their power, influence and resources.
