Despite an overall improvement in vehicle safety, car manufacturers will still try to take shortcuts in the manufacturing process in an attempt to save money any way they can. Often times these shortcuts will lead to injuries and, when they do, these companies must be held accountable for their actions. Attorney Gibson Vance hosts the Beasley Allen Report and this episode features fellow Beasley Allen attorney Mike Andrews. Together they discuss vehicle safety, specifically seat belt malfunctions. Mike outlines a case he worked on that, after investigation, revealed a defective seat belt.
Very often, when investigating a case where an automobile crash results in injuries or death that seem out of proportion to the severity of the crash, our lawyers discover a defective auto product is to blame. In addition to seat belts, defective products may include weak roofs, inadequate firewalls, defective tires, and airbags.
