When Bad Products Hurt Good People - Your Case is Our Cause
Which Law Firm Handles Injuries Caused by Defective Vehicles?
Almost every day we will use a car, truck, SUV, or any other type of automobile as a form of transportation. Motor vehicles have become a fixture of our everyday lives, however, they can be a product that causes catastrophic personal injury or wrongful death to innocent drivers and passengers if a manufacturer or dealer defect exists.
When an automobile manufacturer or car dealer provides a car that has a manufacturer defect or uses a defective component, it is strictly liable in the state of Pennsylvania for the injuries and damages that the automobile causes.
However, proving that an automobile is defective and determining product liability is a process that requires expertise and skill.
The attorneys at Schiffman Firm have the knowledge and experience and have been delivering results to victims that were injured in accidents due to defects found in a car, truck, or SUV from the manufacturer or car dealership. Our team has been able to secure multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts for victims injured by automobiles that have been proven to have a defect.

What is "crashworthiness"?

Crashworthiness 1 means that a motor vehicle must be safe to withstand predictable and common real-world accidents without causing additional injury.
Schiffman Firm has successfully represented clients in thousands of personal injury cases, including those that were injured due to defects found in cars, trucks, SUVs, and other types of motor vehicles.

Tires and Tire Treads
A defective tire can cause treads to separate and create unsafe and hazardous driving conditions
Vehicle Rollover and Car Roofs
A car, truck, or SUV that was engineered improperly resulting in a poor center of gravity will be more susceptible to rolling over during a car accident which can cause additional injury to the victims involved.
Additionally, a poorly constructed vehicle roof may not be able to withstand the impact involved in a rollover accident.
A car, truck, or SUV that accelerates suddenly and without notice can potentially cause massive amounts of damage and injuries to the victims involved
Brakes and Braking Systems
Improperly designed or defective brakes, brake pads, braking systems can cause vehicles to stop irregularly or not at all – creating a potentially dangerous scenario while on the road
