Automotive Product Alerts

The professional team of lawyers at Carabin & Shaw are diligent in their efforts to provide San Antonio consumers the most current information related to automotive product alerts. When manufacturers of consumer products are negligent in allowing defective products to reach the marketplace, or fail to provide proper safety instructions, those manufacturers may be held liable for injuries sustained by consumers.

Automotive product alerts are only one area of concern—as consumers we interact with numerous products in our daily lives, and the attorneys at Carabin & Shaw are experts in litigating cases related to product liability . We are committed to seeking just compensation for anyone in the San Antonio area and beyond that has been harmed by a dangerous or defective product.

The following issues are a few that our law firm has been following closely and wants to make sure that consumers are aware of:

Tire blowout and defective tires

San Antonio drivers rely on manufacturers to provide safe tires, so that we can travel on roadways without placing our loved ones in harm’s way. However, certain brands of tires have been proven to be defective, resulting in millions of tires being recalled, and manufacturers being held responsible for hundreds of crashes that could have otherwise been avoided. If you experience a tire blowout that causes an injury to anyone in your vehicle, be aware that your tire may be defective. The attorneys at Carabin & Shaw will make sure that you have all the relevant information to help you determine all the factors involved in your accident.

Crashworthiness

Auto manufacturers are responsible for designing vehicle features that anticipate the possibility of high-speed collisions and minimize the risk of injury to passengers.

A vehicle that is crashworthy has been designed and manufactured to successfully reduce the risk of passengers being ejected from the vehicle, the risk of fires, and the risk of death or serious injury. A vehicle that is not crashworthy fails to meet reasonable expectations that all component parts of the vehicle have been designed

to protect passengers as much as possible in the event of a collision.

The dangers of 15-passenger vans

In the expert opinion of the lawyers at Carabin & Shaw, 15-passengers are too dangerous to be on San Antonio roadways, or any other roads for that matter. However, federal statistics show that are more than 500,000 of these vehicles in operation today. Due to their design and their high center of gravity, these vehicles are highly prone to rollover accidents, which have resulted in documented cases of serious bodily injury and even death. Federal law does not allow the use of 15-passenger vans for transporting school students and for good reason; the evidence clearly shows that these vehicles put their passengers at a much greater risk for rollover accidents. The link above provides more information on this subject as well as some very important safety precautions that can help consumers stay as safe as possible when driving 15-passenger vans.

For the sake of safety, it is important for San Antonio drivers to stay informed about the latest automotive product alerts. If you have sustained injuries in a collision and you believe that a defective automotive product may be partly or wholly responsibly, it will be in your best interest to speak with a San Antonio recall lawyer at Carabin & Shaw.
