Many cars have electronic systems that assist in steering, handling, and braking. These are usually controlled automatically in your car, whether you are aware of this help or not. However, if these systems malfunction, you may be suddenly faced with brakes or steering that are much more difficult to control. These defects can result in loss of control of the vehicle, serious personal injury, or even death. There have been many recalls related to steering assist and brakes over the last decade.

If you learn that you are driving with recalled power steering or brakes, it’s very important for your safety that you address these issues as soon as possible.

What do you charge for my product’s liability lawsuit?

We only take cases on a contingent fee basis, meaning we only get paid if we win or settle your case. If there is no recovery, you will owe no attorney’s fees. We advance all case expenses, so we will not ask you to pay any costs out of pocket.

Where will my case be filed?

Your case will typically be filed only if we are unable to settle your case. If your case is filed, it will likely be filed in the state the accident or injury occurred. Our auto defect attorneys may also be able to file your case where the defendant is headquartered, a registered agent or does business. We also can file where the original negligent design of the product occurred.

Can you settle my case before filing a lawsuit or trial?

If time permits and we think there is a good chance your case will be taken seriously by a defendant, we often will provide voluntary information and make a settlement demand to resolve your case without a trial. Of course, we only do this with the client’s permission and active involvement.
