Automotive Products Liability

Automotive products liability cases require complex, specialized investigations and the ability to manage extensive document and deposition discovery. Goldberg Segalla attorneys have broad experience in these matters.  Our attorneys have defended manufacturers and component suppliers of automobiles, heavy trucks, buses, motorcycles, ATVs and recreational vehicles in lawsuits involving allegations of design and manufacturing defects, inadequate warnings, breach of warranty, and consumer fraud.     

Such cases often involve sophisticated engineering and medical issues.  We have the experience to effectively address those issues and to present them in a manner that a jury can understand.  We have litigated cases involving all aspects of automotive design.  We have served as national counsel to automotive manufacturers on such issues as sudden acceleration, inadvertent movement, and vehicle fires.  And we have tried to verdict cases involving defect allegations related to fuel systems, stability and handling, roof structures, cruise control systems, transmissions, starter and shift interlocks, seats, brakes, seatbelts, and airbags.  It is our practice to keep informed of technical developments in the industry and we use our experience gained through litigation to efficiently and effectively represent our clients.
