When your vehicle went out of control, there was nothing you could do to prevent it. You tried to correct your vehicle, but your wheel seemed like it had no control over the rest of the vehicle at all. Try as you might, there was just nothing you could do.

After crashing, you were glad that you didn’t involve anyone else in the collision. You hit a median at a moderate speed, and you suffered a head injury along with some other minor physical injuries. Now, you want to know why your vehicle went out of control. You’re a safe driver, and this doesn’t reflect that.

You may have a defective motor vehicle case

You could have a defective part in your vehicle that led to the collision. For example, damage or defects in the electrical system, braking system or steering systems could all lead to trouble controlling your vehicle. Trouble with the fuel system or transmission could also make it hard for you to control what your vehicle does, putting your life in danger.

Under the doctrine of strict liability, you’re able to file a strict liability claim if you can show that there is a motor vehicle defect that led to your crash. You don’t have to show that manufacturer or dealer was negligent or careless to bring a case, so long as:

  • There was a component of your vehicle that made it unreasonably dangerous
  • Your vehicle hadn’t been substantially altered since it was sold to you
  • The defect in the vehicle caused injuries while it was being used

You deserve to have a safe vehicle. If you’re hurt because of defects, you may want to learn more about making a claim.
