4 Things Personal Injury Attorneys Need To Know About Car Wreck Cases

Auto Safety Expert and Personal Injury Lawyer Todd Tracy lists the four critical steps that personal injury lawyers need to do in order to bring a Vehicle Crashworthiness or Product Liability lawsuit against an automaker or car dealer.

Hello I am Todd Tracy with today’s Todd Talks. A lot of times I have lawyers ask me, “What are the tips I need to do if I want to evaluate a potential crash worthiness or vehicle defect case?” Well I think there is really four that need to start the evaluation. Number one, you need to secure the vehicle, you need to make certain the vehicle is safe, is secure and is preserved. Without the vehicle, there is no case. You want to make certain that you do not settle the property damage case because once the insurance company, whoever, has paid for that vehicle, once you have lost the vehicle, then we have to go try to track it down at an auction facility and a lot of times if we lose the vehicle and it goes to a salvage yard, we will never be able to get the vehicle the way we need it to pursue the case against a vehicle manufacturer. Number three, do not remove anything from the vehicle because everything in that vehicle is potentially a target for us to evaluate what caused the injury, when did the injury occur and we need to see every aspect of every component in the vehicle. I don’t care if it is a jacket, I don’t care if it is groceries, I don’t care if it is luggage, I don’t care if it is a radio, we need everything in the vehicle. And lastly, you do not need to settle the underlying case just yet. We need to evaluate all aspects of the case before determination is made about settling the underlying case. This is Todd Tracy with today’s Todd Talks.

If your client suffered a traumatic car accident injury or they were killed in an auto accident, there may be grounds for a product liability lawsuit against the car maker. The victim’s or family members of the deceased person may be entitled to significantly more money in damages than just a negligence case about the cause of the accident.

Even if your client may be at fault in the cause of the accident such loosing control on an icy or wet surface, you still may have a case if your client’s vehicle’s safety systems failed to protect them.  Car companies are required by federal motor vehicle safety standards to make vehicles that will protect the driver and passengers from catastrophic injuries or death.

The Tracy Law Firm focuses on “Who Caused The Traumatic Car Accident Injuries or Death” — not who caused the accident.
