Classes of Common Auto Product Liability Cases

SUV and 15 passenger van rollovers

It may surprise you to learn that large vehicles, such as big passenger vans and supersized SUVs, tend to be particularly at risk for rollover accidents and roof collapses. But statistics show that many of these big vehicles are high rollover risks. This is because large SUVs and vans may have what’s known as a high center of gravity. In other words, their center of mass is concentrated at a relatively high point above the ground. Thus, these vehicles are easier to tip over, despite their massiveness. Picture a set of a heavy golf clubs balanced on top of a T-ball stand. Since the weight is concentrated at the top, the system is unstable and “top heavy.”

Tire defects

Overinflated or underinflated tires, tires which rupture or lose their treading, or other tire defects can prove dangerous, if not fatal. Often, drivers have little to no warning of impending tire failure. In some Atlanta personal injury cases involving tire failure, plaintiffs may team up with one another to launch what’s known as a “class action” lawsuit against the manufacturer or designer of a defective tire or part.

Airbag and/or seatbelt failure

Airbags and seatbelts are safety features designed to protect drivers and passengers from impact and injury during crashes. Most of the time, these devices function properly. Statistics show that they do save lives. However, malfunctioning airbags and seatbelts can also cause catastrophic damage. For instance, if an airbag fails to go off when it should – or it goes off when it shouldn’t – drivers and passengers may get needlessly hurt.
