Defective Auto Parts Attorney
Have a Faulty Car Part? Our Longview Product Liability Lawyers Can Help!
A faulty or defective product can be unsafe in any circumstances, but when that product is part of a motor vehicle, it can be especially dangerous. Cars, trucks, and motorcycles drive at fast speeds, and if any part of those vehicles malfunctions while driving it could cause a serious crash that is likely to harm the driver, any passengers, as well as anyone else on or near the road. For this reason, those responsible for creating or selling malfunctioning auto parts should be held responsible for any resulting injuries or damage.
Our product liability lawyers at Erskine & McMahon, LLP understand how frightening and frustrating it can be to suffer an injury because of a defective auto part. We are passionate about advocating for the rights of the wrongfully injured, and we can use our ample resources to fight for compensation on your behalf.

Common Defective Part Issues
Defects involving motor vehicles may have to do with the vehicles themselves or specific parts made for the vehicle. The same applies for cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, and other means of transportation.
Product liability claims may be based on, but are not limited to, the following issues:
- Tire defects, including poor rubber quality
- Brake malfunctions or failure
- Faulty child safety seats
- Seat belt failures
- Air bag malfunctions or failure to deploy
- Defective door latches
- Seat back failures
- Malfunctioning electrical systems
- Faulty transmission or drivetrain
- Issues involving steering wheels or steering systems
Problems with any car part, including those mentioned above, could lead to serious injuries or fatal accidents. If you or someone you love was injured by a faulty auto part, contact our product liability attorneys today to discuss your options.
Who Could Be Liable?
When a product is faulty, there are typically two different explanations. It is likely the product was either improperly designed, or defectively manufactured. If a product is defectively designed, the company responsible for creating a safe design may not have followed safety guidelines or simply designed an unsafe product. Parts that are wrongly manufactured are accurate in design, but built or assembled incorrectly. A manufacturing error could result in missing parts or errors in shipping. If you were injured, our product liability lawyers can help you determine who was at fault and how.
