Miami Auto Product Liability Lawyers
Premier Advocacy for Injury Victims Since 1988
Not every auto accident is caused solely through the fault of a driver. In some cases, injuries are caused or worsened by auto defects. These defects can occur in any part or system of the vehicle, in the entire vehicle itself, or in the way it was designed. When you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident in which your injuries resulted or were aggravated due to a defective part or design, you may have grounds to bring a civil suit. This suit would be made against the manufacturer or other entities who were part of the supply chain to the public. This is called auto product liability.
It is devastating enough to be involved in an accident with a negligent driver. When this is intensified due to a negligent manufacturer or design, it can become deadly. At Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, we have dealt with such issues for clients throughout South Florida since 1988. When you come to us with your personal injury claim, you get the benefit of the multiple legal minds of our respected team working on your case. Our attorneys are deeply experienced, trial-tested, and supremely professional. We bring an array of dedicated resources to the table including medical and other investigators, former law enforcement, and more.

More About Auto Product Liability
Auto product liability falls under the general legal principle of product liability. This is based on the concept that manufacturers of consumer products and their components can be held liable for damages when these products are found to be defective and lead to or contribute to the injuries of the public. These defects have occurred in the manufacturing of the product or in how the product was designed. Many examples of auto defects have occurred in the U.S. in the past including the exploding gas tank of Ford Pintos in the 1970s and stuck accelerator pedals in various Toyota models in 2009-2011.
Other examples of auto defects include (but are not limited to):
- Faulty brakes
- Faulty airbags
- Faulty seat belts
- Defects in fuel lines and systems
- Defects in door latches
- Poor design resulting in rollovers
- Roof “crush” due to inadequate design or manufacture
Those who may be held liable in a defective auto or auto part case can include the vehicle manufacturer, parts manufacturer, the vehicle dealership or car parts supplier, and the distributor or shipper of the part or vehicle. Damages awarded to victims can include those that may be part of any personal injury claim, including compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages or earning capacity, and more.
