When you drive a car, you are putting your trust in the car companies and mechanics whose products and services are meant to keep your vehicle in working order. When a manufacturer or mechanic fails in this obligation, accidents can happen.
Defective equipment, poor maintenance, and other mechanical issues can put you, your family, and the other drivers around you in danger. If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident caused by the negligence of a business or manufacturer, you may be entitled to seek compensation. You could seek a recovery for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
A Plano deadly and defective vehicles accident lawyer from Loncar Lyon Jenkins will fight for you. Your first consultation is free.
How Do You Hold a Negligent Party Accountable for Their Defective Vehicle?
We can help you move forward in pursuing compensation after you have been injured or lost a loved one to a defective vehicle. From reimbursing your medical bills, recovering your lost wages, to addressing your pain and suffering, you could seek more compensation than you realize.
What about Shared Responsibility for the Accident?
Even if you believe that you may be partially at fault for the accident, that does not preclude you from pursuing compensation for your losses. According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §33.001, we only have to help you prove that the other party was more responsible for the accident than you.
This means that even if you contributed to the accident in some way, you can still hold the makers of the defective vehicle responsible for their negligence.
A lawyer can help you figure out who is responsible for your accident.

You Can Pursue Compensation Through a Claim or Lawsuit
You could be facing high medical bills, lost wages, and other significant impacts to your life after an accident caused by a deadly or defective vehicle. If you lost a loved one to an accident, you could be facing expensive funeral and burial costs at the same time you are grieving. You may be able to seek a financial recovery for these and other losses.
We can help you file a lawsuit against the at-fault parties. If the negligence of the car manufacturer, parts manufacturer, or mechanic led to your accident and injuries, you may be able to bring an insurance claim or lawsuit against the liable business, their employees, or both. We will investigate all aspects of your case to get to the root of what happened, what caused the crash, and who could be responsible.
We can help you with the following steps in the process:
- Showing that the product or parts manufacturer owed you a duty of care
- Gathering evidence to show that you were injured by the negligent party
- Demonstrating that you suffered costs and losses
- Assigning a value to your case
- Handing negotiations with the insurance company
- Taking your case to court, if necessary
- Ensuring your case meets any important deadlines
A case like this can be complicated, as it requires showing that someone else’s negligence was the direct cause of your injuries. We can help you build this evidence using a variety of methods to create a compelling case. We could gather expert testimony and work with accident reconstructionists to determine how your accident was caused, among other techniques.

Vehicle Defects You Can Sue for
Defective vehicle lawsuits fall under the category of “product liability.” According to the Legal Information Institute (LII), product liability can involve any entity along the entire supply chain of a defective part or product. This includes the manufacturers of the car parts, the assemblers of those parts, the wholesaler, and the retail seller.
When a defective vehicle is on the road, an otherwise safe driver may lose control of their vehicle. We can help show that your accident was directly caused by a defective product.
Here are some ways in which vehicles may be shown to be defective according to the LII:
The defect in the vehicle may lie in the design itself. This can be an unsafe design for certain components, multiple components when operating in conjunction with one another, or the vehicle as a whole. If the design is flawed, then no amount of care in manufacturing, assembly, or maintenance can make up for it.
These are flaws in the manufacturing process or assembly process. We will investigate the circumstances of your accident to determine whether manufacturing defects may have played a role in your accident.
If the instructions or marketing for your vehicle are unclear or misleading, this can lead to accidents even if the vehicle is functioning as intended.
Your accident and injuries may have been caused by these or other forms of defects or product misinformation. We can build evidence to show that you were harmed by these defects or errors—and we can seek just compensation on your behalf.
