Chris Dixon

Founder and Managing Attorney

I pride myself on tirelessly fighting for the injury victims who continuously trust me with their cases. It is an honor to serve and a passion which drives my existence.

Car Defects are often known by the manufacturer before the car leaves the factory. The reason these defective parts aren’t recalled is because the manufacturer doesn’t want to pay for the costs of the replacement, nor the costs of the lawsuits that may follow because the defective parts were knowingly installed. Dealing with large car manufacturers, however, can be extremely difficult if you attempt to do it alone. To best receive the compensation and recovery you are owed, you need to contact our car defect accident lawyers in St. Louis immediately. We will use our knowledge of Missouri and Illinois laws as well as court precedents to fight for your rights. When you are ready to begin your car defects claim in St. Louis, call or contact our car accident lawyers immediately.

What are the Most Common Car Defects?

Some car defects are more common than others. Whether it’s the difficulty in making the piece, the materials that are used to make it, or another reason, here are several of the most common car defects:

  • Defective Seabelts – Improperly working seatbelts can lead to severe injuries and even death in the event of a car accident.
  • Defective Airbags – If an airbag fails to deploy during a crash, the cars occupants can become seriously injured as a result of the defective airbag.
  • Door Latch Mechanisms – When a door fails to properly latch and remain closed, the door can come open and cause the driver or passenger to fall out, or it can fail to open and leave someone trapped inside the car.
  • Fuel Pump – Without a working fuel pump, a car won’t work properly. When a car suddenly runs out of fuel, it can cause the driver to take evasive maneuvers that may put themselves and other drivers at risk.
  • Steering Components – Defective Steering components can lead to accidents that are often serious and sometimes fatal. When a steering component is defective, the driver can lose control of their vehicle and crash into others or drive off the road.
  • Braking Systems – Defective braking systems are extremely dangerous. Cars need to be able to come to a full and complete stop, and when that doesn’t happen because of defective brake systems, the ensuing accidents are often catastrophic or deadly.

No vehicle or vehicle part should ever leave the factory if it has defects that can cause an accident. When a vehicle or part defect is found, the manufacturers are supposed to immediately recall the part so that they can be replaced with correctly working parts. If your accident was caused by a known car defect, you have rights that allow you to recover from any injuries you may have sustained. If you need experienced legal representation for an accident that was caused by a car defect, Christopher R. Dixon and the Car Defect Accident Lawyers of Dixon Law are prepared to fight no your behalf.
