Auto Defects Lawyers

Leaders in the Field of Automobile Crashworthiness

Thomas P. Willingham began his career as a defense attorney for the automobile manufacturing industry. After seeing firsthand the damage done to people when the cars they believed were safe, failed them, he changed his position. He now puts his knowledge of manufacturer defense to work, assisting people who have been injured or lost a loved one as a result of a defective automobile design.

It is an unfortunate fact that many vehicles come out of the factory with defective parts. These vehicles can cause serious accidents when they are on the road, or they can cause further injury to driver and passengers when components of that vehicle malfunctions in an accident. Commonly defective parts or causes of accident and injury are:

  • Defective seat backs
  • Defective air bags
  • Lack of air bags
  • Defective door latch
  • Roofs of cars crushing
  • Defective steering system
  • Defective seat belts
  • Lack of safety equipment
  • Defective tires
  • Lack of electronic stability control
  • Defective brakes
  • Sudden uncontrolled acceleration
  • After-market vehicle parts
  • Defective fuel tanks
  • Fires caused by bad engines or defective car parts
  • Post-collision fuel-fed fires
