Manufacturer Liability

"My car accelerated into a building and I was injured. I believe the problem was part of a recall, but I'm the second owner of the car. Is the manufacturer liable?"

We are sorry to hear about your injuries. However, the answer to your question is that it depends. This type of accident is complicated. First, we would need to find out if your vehicle's VIN was involved in a recall that is related to the gas pedal. Unintended acceleration cases have been known to be caused by sticky gas pedals and floor mat obstructions. They also have been caused by human error, as drivers push the gas pedal instead of the brake.

In order to determine what exactly happened in your case, you would need to have investigators, software engineers, and a good accident attorney on your side to determine if the manufacturer could be held liable for your Atlanta auto accident.
