Injury From An Unsafe Vehicle?

You’ve been injured in a car accident, but you can’t figure out why it happened. It wasn’t the fault of you or another driver. If you have been injured due to an unsafe vehicle, give the team of experienced lawyers at Hourigan, Kluger & Quinn a call.

Your accident may have been caused by driving a defective vehicle. When a vehicle causes an accident because of how it was made or maintained, it is known as “crashworthiness.” This could mean defective design or workmanship, poor maintenance by the corporate owner, or negligent conduct on the part of others who came into contact with the vehicle.

Hourigan, Kluger & Quinn represents victims, including passengers, who have suffered injuries or fatalities, caused by unsafe vehicles. Serious injury or death from a defective vehicle could include roll-overs from narrow wheel base vehicles, a collapsed roof that did not have adequate support, seat belt malfunction that caused injury or ejection during a crash.

Crashworthiness cases are extraordinarily technical and complex, and giant auto manufacturers spare no expense in defending them. That’s why these cases require tremendous experience and resources – the kind we have at Hourigan, Kluger & Quinn. Our firm has litigated dozens of Unsafe Vehicle Cases.
