Each year in the United States, there are an estimated six and a half million auto accidents, all of which have the potential of yielding serious personal injury.
Automobile accidents can often result in a number of serious personal injuries, some of which include: brain injuries, burn injuries, spinal cord injuries and paralysis.
While a great many auto accidents are caused as a result of driver negligence, a significant portion are caused as a result of defective automobiles. Defective brakes and defective tires are two of the more common automobile defects capable of causing serious accidents.
Even when an auto accident itself is not caused as a result of a manufacturer defect, the injuries sustained in the aftermath may in fact be tied to such negligence. Most serious personal injuries are caused by roof crush, defective air bags, defective seat belts, rollovers, etc. Such defects often result in physical trauma to the head, neck and spinal cord, with long term and serious consequences.
