Even Small Product Defects Can Cause Motorcycle Accidents
When many people think of motorcycle accidents, they imagine a distracted driver accidentally hitting a motorcyclist. While this happens too often, this is not the only cause of motorcycle accidents. Sometimes, defective parts in a motorcycle can cause the whole vehicle to fail, injuring or even killing the driver. The personal injury lawyers at the Los Angeles offices of the Law Offices of Burg and Brock, Inc. understand all types of personal injury litigation, from distracted drivers to product malfunctions.
Our global economy allows vehicle manufacturers to source parts from special makers all over the world. Many manufacturers focus on one piece of a motorcycle, such as an engine part, brake system, or even radio. Sometimes, a flaw in this piece can cause the whole motorcycle to crash. This flaw could be caused by a problem in manufacturing, or a design defect at the drawing board. Regardless, manufacturers must be held accountable for the quality of their products. They should have quality inspections that uncover these flaws before they reach consumers. When a manufacturers fails to properly quality-test a product, or intentionally ignores a dangerous defect, this is called negligence. The personal injury and wrongful death attorneys at the Law Offices of Burg and Brock, Inc. help victims of defective products.
Injuries after a motorcycle accident may not appear immediately. Concussions can lead to traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries or cracked vertebrae can, days or even weeks later, limit mobility and cause a great deal of pain.
