Automotive Defects Liability

Seat belts, airbags, door latches, and a number of other automotive parts are intended to enhance the safety of drivers and passengers.

When airbags malfunction, seatback failure occurs, or a roof crushes on impact, serious injuries and wrongful death often result from these automotive defects. At the Butler Law Group in Jacksonville, Florida we have handled numerous cases involving defective auto parts against most of the major automakers. Consulting with nationally recognized automotive design experts, engineers, and restraint system experts, we identify what led to a parts failure, why it occurred, and how it was causally related to the injuries suffered by our client.

Level the playing field

Contact Florida attorney Howard G. Butler, Esq. Whether you live in Jacksonville, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Lake City, Gainesville, Pensacola, Panama City, Tallahassee, or anywhere else in Florida, our Jacksonville car accident attorney is available to meet with you to discuss your motor vehicle defect case.

Uncovering Facts: How and why Parts Fail
Auto parts manufacturers often employ a team of attorneys who will argue driver error or that a part failed for some other reason than its being defective. Using computer technology and design testing experts, we conduct crash tests and computer simulations to analyze all relevant variables.

We investigate and uncover faulty products that failed or malfunctioned when they fail under foreseeable real-world conditions. In this way, our attorneys are prepared to take on manufacturers from a position of strength, utilizing forensic and simulation tools grounded in science and objectivity.

Taking Down Goliath

Auto manufacturers have plenty of legal and scientific resources – there’s no question about it. However, our former automotive industry design experts and computer and media-based tools level the playing field for our clients. We know how to take on Goliath – we’ve made a career of it, letting facts and evidence speak for themselves in a court of law. Read some of our case summaries.

Don’t be intimidated or discouraged from seeking justice from a negligent auto parts manufacturer – contact Jacksonville auto defects attorney Howard Butler today.
