Harrisburg Defective Automobile Lawyer
Automobiles are both fantastically helpful and incredibly dangerous. They allow for swift travel across great distances while carrying more cargo than would otherwise be possible. But moving at those speeds while in close proximity to other vehicles that may weigh several tons is inherently hazardous. This has been largely masked by the remarkable safety technologies and design refinements of modern vehicles. What we regard as routine is separated by a thin line from being catastrophic, as anyone who has been in a car accident can attest.

Examples of Automobile Defects
Because automobiles are such complex machines, there is any number of systems and parts that may fail to perform their designated tasks. Not all of those failures are likely to cause substantial harm, but many can. The defective design or manufacture of the following parts, or their malfunction, may result in grave harm:
- Tires – Separation or blowouts may cause a driver to lose control or the vehicle to roll.
- Safety glass – Windshields that shard can cause life-threatening lacerations.
- Airbags – Failure to deploy or unnecessary deployment can both result in injury.
- Gas tanks – Faulty fuel lines or insufficient protection may result in fire or explosion.
Automobile makers know that the public depends on their product for much of modern life, and sometimes they allow design flaws to remain in place because the cost of correcting them is prohibitive. This greed needlessly endangers the safety and lives of all on the roadway.
