A Daytona Beach car accident can leave you seriously injured and unable to earn a living. The ramifications can be life-altering. However, an automobile defect can increase those risks substantially.

The crashworthiness of your vehicle

“Crashworthiness” is a term used to determine your vehicle’s ability to protect you and your occupants in the event you are involved in a Florida car accident. Automobile manufacturers are required to take into account that their product may be involved in a crash.

Common auto defects

When the structure of your vehicle is compromised, you are at greater risk of being injured in an accident. Whether at the design and/or assembly phase, common auto defects may include:
  • Tire defects
  • seat belt malfunctions
  • Brake malfunctions

Proving your case

No matter who caused your accident, if the structure of your vehicle was compromised and a defect existed, you might be able to hold your manufacture liable for your damages. However, you must prove that the defect contributed to your injury.
