A History of Negligence
Vehicle manufacturers have a long history of ignoring obvious safety issues in order to save money in production. Early cases include the Ford Pinto, which went into production despite a defect in the fuel system that caused the gas tank to leak — and explode — in rear-end collisions. The company was aware of the design flaw and still released the car for sale.
Litigation Saves Lives
Because of these early cases, vehicles have become safer. Changes brought about by litigation help save lives and prevent injuries. Still, all too often vehicle manufacturers ignore safety issues and provide dangerous vehicles to the public. Some of our more recent cases have included:
- Ford Explorer and other SUV rollovers
- Chevrolet Pick Up gas tank cases
- Firestone and other tires
- Four Wheelers and ATVs
