Although car accidents are often caused by other drivers, sometimes a defect is to blame. For example, these vehicle parts and features have been the subject of past defective auto lawsuits:
- Electrical systems
- Ignition switches
On a related note, defective roadways are sometimes the cause of accidents.
When you purchase a vehicle, you rely on it to be reasonably safe. Human error causes more than 90 percent of all crashes, and as drivers we don't really expect flaws in our vehicles to lead to an accident.
