VEHICLE DEFECTS

Commonly, drivers or other individuals involved in a traffic accident may claim or suspect that a defect or failure in a vehicle component caused the incident or contributed to it or the resulting injuries. We use our knowledge of and experience with vehicle systems to analyze the claims, in order to determine whether they have merit. This commonly involves investigations in one or more of the following areas:

        Hydraulic Brake Systems, Including ABS

        Air Brake Systems

        Steering and Suspension Systems

        Unintended Acceleration Incidents

        Seat Belt Evaluations

        Air Bag Systems

        Engine Failures

        Vehicle Crashworthiness

        Motorcycle Controls

        Axle and Wheel Failures

        Vehicle Mounted Powered Devices
