Sometimes cars themselves cause accidents

Most car accidents are caused by drivers. Studies have shown that human error factors into at least 90 percent of the daily accident totals from around the United States. This is one of the arguments for the implementation of self-driving cars. The statistics show that, no matter what they may believe about their abilities, many people are not very good drivers.

It's easier than many think to see if a vehicle has been recalled

In 2015, about 51 million vehicles were recalled. Often, these recalls occur because of defective auto parts, which may result in injury or death. In a tragic example of a defective auto part, young actor, Anton Yelchin, lost his life when his Jeep Grand Cherokee pinned him against a brick structure.

Help with identifying causation in defective auto part claims

Anything that can be constructed can contain defects. Sometimes defects are easy to spot and to correct, but other times defects are not recognized until after they cause an injury. Defective auto parts can be especially dangerous as they may fail when vehicles are moving at fast speeds resulting in a serious motor vehicle accident.

Could you be sold a flood damaged car?

The flooding due to Hurricane Irma, as well as in Houston due to Hurricane Harvey has affected hundreds of auto dealerships. While insurance coverage may cover dealers, some used car brokers will undoubtedly buy flood damaged cars at a fraction of the cost, clean them out to mask any evidence of flood damage, and sell them to unsuspecting drivers who believe they are getting a great bargain.
