Some are the direct result of a vehicle defect that can disable the car, truck, SUV, or motorcycle without notice, causing catastrophic crashes.
In these cases, the process of recovering compensation may involve filing a personal injury claim against multiple parties, including the vehicle’s manufacturer, component’s provider, or another third party.
Our skilled attorneys can help you uncover the defect and how it caused the collision, outline your complete injuries and damages, and pursue the liable party for your full financial recovery.
What Types of Vehicle Defects Lead to Accidents, Injuries, and Fatalities in Texas & New Mexico?
Vehicle defects can affect a single part in a car, truck, or SUV, or an entire system. Both may compromise the vehicle’s functionality, leaving the driver helpless to correct the issue.
When the driver or occupants have no control over their safety, people are going to get hurt or even killed because of the defect itself, or from the injuries or deaths that result from a crash.
Some of the common types of vehicle defects that could lead to an injury accident include, but are not limited to:
- Design Flaws
- Door latch systems
- Electrical components or wiring systems
- Fuel systems
- Hoses and lines
- Reclining seats
- Steering components
- Windows or windshield

Frequently Asked Questions of Defective Vehicle Injuries
How Seriously Do My Injuries Have to Be to Pursue a Defective Vehicle Injury Claim?
The severity of your injuries is gauged by how they impact your daily activities, and your overall quality of life. That is different for everyone. For instance, if you are a server in a restaurant, and suffer a broken arm, your ability to work is going to be in jeopardy. That means your expenses are going to far outweigh your income — at least until you can fully heal. Although a broken arm may not be considered catastrophic, it is to your livelihood. We understand that and can help you pursue damages from the liable party.
Will I Have to Join a Class Action Lawsuit to Pursue Compensation from the Liable Party?
Currently, the Ruhmann Law Firm manages personal injury claims on a case-by-case basis. That means we will review your defective vehicle injuries, medical requirements, and overall damages and pursue the liable party for your financial outcome. If your case rises to the level of a class action lawsuit, our skilled Mass Torts attorneys in El Paso can help there, too.
What Happens If I Suffer Permanent Injuries Because of a Defective Vehicle?
There are multiple circumstances that can lead to permanent injuries when our clients are injured because of a defective vehicle. For instance, defective vehicle fires can cause severe burns and scarring to the face, neck, and head. Defective headrests can lead to traumatic brain, neck, and spine injuries that can cause permanent damage. These cases are pursued by our experienced defective vehicle injury attorneys in El Paso with the same determination as our other cases. The difference is, we will adjust your compensation needs to span a lifetime — instead of our temporary needs.
What Happens if My Defective Vehicle is Involved in Recall by the Manufacturer?
Vehicle manufacturers often issue recalls on defective parts, but only after someone — or multiple people — has been seriously injured because of the problem. If you have suffered injuries in a defective vehicle before the recall was issued, we want to hear your story. If you have not been injured, but your vehicle has a manufacturer recall in place, take it to your local dealership and have the issue repaired as quickly as possible.
How Long Will It Take to Resolve My Defective Vehicle Injury Case?
All personal injury cases, including defective vehicle injury cases, are unique. The time it takes to review your claim, assess your injuries, develop the proper evidence, and build your case takes time. Once we have all the necessary details, we will begin negotiating with the insurance company to pursue the best outcome for your case. We will keep you informed during each step of the legal process, so you can make informed decisions about your case, and so you know where your claim stands at each turn. When we take your case, we are in this together.
