If a defect in an automobile caused the accident or exacerbated the injuries, an otherwise minor accident can turn into a serious tragedy. A seat belted passenger whose seat was reclined at the time of an impact may sustain serious injuries whereas an upright occupant may walk away without a scratch. Consumers are not informed of the danger of seatbelts being ineffective when the seat back is reclined. Automakers must be held accountable in these instances. Winning a product liability claim against the world's automobile manufacturers and their armies of lawyers can take years of litigation and often involves extensive and expensive research and testing to prove a defect was to blame.
Michael Morgenstern and his team of attorneys have extensive experience in auto accident cases and always consider the possibility that a product defect was a contributing factor to the victim's injuries. Every case is evaluated for potential product defect claims to bring all responsible parties to justice and maximize recovery for the client.
