Cars are extremely complex pieces of machinery that are vital to the everyday lives of most Tennessee residents. We often take our vehicles for granted, simply getting behind the wheel and driving off to work without a care. We just trust that all of the different parts that make up a working car will do their jobs; parts likes tires, tranmissions, filters, engines and many more. Unfortunately, car parts do not always work as they are supposed to.
There are many reasons that failing car parts can pose a serious safety hazard. Obviously, if you are driving down the road and one of your tires pops, there is a strong chance that you will be involved in a car accident. But even if you are alone on an empty road, you could still suffer serious injuries because cars are loaded with highly flammable fuel. One unfortunate moment could cause your vehicle to explode.
It can be staggering to think of all the different ways that failing car parts can negatively affect your health. Imagine if you are involved in an accident, and miraculously you are relatively unharmed, but your vehicle is on fire. Suddenly, your door fails, and you are unable to escape from the burning vehicle. This's just another example of how a faulty car part could cause you harm.
Because of this, it is important to remember your rights when it comes to personal injuries and motor vehicle accidents. We often talk about other drivers being at fault in an accident, but there are times when your car might be responsible for an accident. In such instances, you are not necessarily at fault if you can prove that the car's designer or manufacturer was negligent in its assembly and that the failing part should have been noted or fixed.
