    Determining if a car accident is fault of the car manufacturer


    When you are in a road traffic accident, it can be all too easy to look to place blame on a third party driver, or an issue with the road. Yet, there are times when another party may be at fault – could your car accident be the fault of the car manufacturer?

    Is my road accident the fault of the car manufacturer?

    Generally speaking, when we are involved in a road accident, we look to place blame with irresponsible drivers, or authorities who have poorly maintained their roads. Yet, sometimes it makes sense to look at whether the car accident could have been the fault of the car manufacturer.

    Think about it in simple terms. The car manufacturer is responsible for building your car, putting together the mechanics, ensuring that the aesthetic quality is exceeded by the mechanical structure. An oversight, or a simple error in manufacturing, can cause problems with your car that could lead to road traffic accidents.

    In this case your car manufacturer could be held liable for the road accident you experienced.

    Some common car issues at the fault of the car manufacturer, include, but are not limited to:
