It was your car that failed to stop, swerved into another lane or otherwise caused a serious Missouri car crash. Even you agree that the accident was not caused by the driver of the car that you hit. However, you also do not believe that the accident was caused by you. Instead, your car was operating outside of your control. It could possibly have been defective. Whatever the specific problem, the result was your car causing a crash as well as property damages with injuries or fatalities.
If this has happened to you, then you may not be responsible for the accident and resulting damages. Instead, it could be the car manufacturer or repair shop that is responsible because the vehicle was defective. It is important to have evidence of your car’s malfunction. The first things you should do to prove your defective vehicle claim include:
- Do not get your car fixed yet. Instead, a qualified auto mechanic will need to examine the car and determine what was wrong with the car.
- Call an experienced Missouri defective products lawyer. Talk to a potential lawyer about his or her experience. Does the lawyer know how to represent clients who have been hurt in defective product cases, or just your typical car accident cases?
You should not have to pay for the mistakes of an auto manufacturer or mechanic. You too were a victim in this accident.
