If you purchased a vehicle that has serious defects, or that has been recalled by the manufacturer and sustained substantial injuries, the Stephens Law Firm can help you evaluate your options for legal recourse.

Proving Liability or Breach of Warranty

The first step in pursuing a defective auto part claim is to demonstrate that personal injuries and losses were a result of a defect in manufacturing, design, or there was a failure to warn of potential issues. A product is considered "defective" if it fails to perform as ordinarily expected when used for the purpose it was designed. Defect car part claims come down to three issues: strict liability, breach of express warranty, and breach of implied warranty
