Who should I hire to sue a car manufacturer that gave no notice of a dangerous product defect, resulting in an accident?

Issaquah, WA |

The defective part (driver side mirror) had been recalled and we were not told. This led to an accident that did not cause any personal injury; only financial and emotional damage.

  1. Best answer

    Auto defect claims are very specialized products liability actions which require different things that the typical personal injury action. It is often takes a tremendous amount of resources to prosecute that type of claim.

    There are only a few attorneys in our area that I would consider competent to handle those claims. Happy to pass their names along if you want them. Feel free to email me and I will send you their contact information: steve@pearsonlawfirm.com

  3. Emotional damage may not be a bodily injury but it is a personal injury that you may collect damages for.. Talk with products liability lawyer.

  5. You sound understandably upset. However, no product defect attorney would take your case. These cases are extremely expensive and time consuming. I have handled them, and they typically cost a minimum of $100 to 200,000 minimum in expenses. This is because car manufacturers have armies of lawyers and experts who will fight these claims. Unless a person has been killed or catastrophically injured, we cannot afford to fight these battles.
