Pursuing Compensation from an Accident Resulting from a Defective Vehicle
It can be difficult to tell whether a car collision was caused by a vehicle defect. Car collisions are chaotic, and liability can be confusing. Federal law 89.563 contains detailed safety standards required for suppliers of automobiles. If your car crash was caused by a manufacturer defect, you may be able to sue your car’s manufacturer for:
- Doctor bills
- Ambulance invoices
- Therapy costs
- Mechanic bills
- Prescription medicine
- Missed historically verifiable income
- Pain and suffering
There are various ways Dallas-area courts have approached calculating pain and suffering. Pain and suffering damages are typically correlated to your medical costs incurred but may go higher in cases of permanent scarring or disfigurement.
Manufacturer defects can cause any type of crash and can stem from just about any part in the car. For example, a failed brake line part could cause a rear-end crash. Our team can help you discern whether such a defect may have played a part in causing your accident.
If you have been paying for medical costs relating to a traffic injury, our team may be able to provide financial relief through the legal system. If your accident was caused by a parts malfunction or design defect you may be entitled to financial compensation. A member of our legal team can help you get the process started with no cost out of your pocket – call us today at 800-777-7777.

How A Manufacturer Defect Attorney Can Help You After an Accident
When we accept a new client at our law firm, we take a risk of our time and resources in working on a contingency basis. This limits your risk in not having to pay anything out of pocket to retain legal counsel who fully pursues your rights and interests.
If we are able to enter into an attorney-client relationship with you, then our communication will be confidential and protected by Texas law, specifically Rule 503. Given the information you share with us, we initiate an urgent discovery process, aggressively collecting evidence that police officers may have missed around the scene of a crime. For example, we may be able to find camera footage relating to your traffic accident. Police officers do not need to make note of a design defect for it to be proven in court, but we are ready to work to amend a police report if we find it contains errors about our clients’ case.
Our law office routinely manages expert testimony to support our clients’ cases for manufacturer defect accidents. A Dallas accident caused by manufacturer defect lawyer with Loncar Lyon Jenkins will know which experts to use and how to present their testimony in court to fulfill the statutory requirements in proving your case.

Determining Liability for Your Accident Can Be Complex
In cases where a defective part caused a roadway crash, there are a few different entities that the legally responsible party could be, such as:
- Mechanic shop that installed a part poorly
- Vehicle dealership that misrepresented a feature
- Automaker who made a defective part
- The designer of the vehicle
- Defendant in pre-existing class action lawsuit
The facts of your case will determine whether one or multiple parties above would be appropriate for you to sue for your injuries. A Dallas accident caused by manufacturer defect lawyer with our team can explain in full detail who may be at fault in your case.

Contact Us Today if You Were Injured in an Accident Caused by a Manufacturers Defect
There are several reasons to act sooner rather than later if you were hurt in Texas by a vehicle manufacturer defect.
Texas Civil Code Section 16.003 limits the amount of time that injured people can pursue damages to two years. No lawsuits are allowed if the damage occurred more than two years before the present date. However, there could be evidence in the field that supports your case that authorities neglected to retrieve.
Police reports for traffic collisions are public knowledge. Thus, if you do not amend an erroneous police report as soon as possible, courts may assume you approved of the initial draft of the police report. An attorney from our team can help you ensure in a timely manner that your police report is accurate, while you focus on healing from your injuries. In this way, some victims of a Texas manufacturer defect accident need a full two years in which to start gathering necessary information and taking legal action. The sooner you act, the more evidence we may be able to gather for you in the field.
Cases with more evidence tend to do better in court than cases with less evidence. To do well in court, a plaintiff must prove the facts of their situation match the letter of the statutory law in question, as well as convey relatability to a jury, and follow all procedural rules. Some victims choose to seek formal medical attention, some do not. Those who do not thus do not have a valid legal claim in court for any related injuries. Some victims choose to hire professional legal help as well to pursue their full legal rights while being able to focus entirely on the healing process and getting back into the lifestyle they knew before the accident.
