Our auto accident lawyers represent clients who have suffered significant injuries in a Michigan auto or truck accident. While driver error is often the cause of an auto accident, there are many circumstances in which a vehicle engages in sudden acceleration and causes a serious injury accident. Sudden acceleration accidents were reported previously with Toyota and Lexus vehicles, but have been known to occur with other vehicle manufacturers as well. When serious injury or death results from sudden acceleration in a car or truck, it can give rise to a products liability lawsuit against the car maker or manufacturer of the auto component.
Common Injuries Caused By Sudden Acceleration and Defective Gas Pedals
When sudden acceleration of a motor vehicle occurs, the driver has difficulty controlling the vehicle and can often not even stop. This can lead to high speed crashes and result in significant injury and harm. Common injuries from sudden acceleration include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Facial fractures
- Eye injuries
- Burn injuries
What To Do if Injured in A Michigan Car Accident Due To Sudden Acceleration
If you or someone you know was injured or died in a car accident due to sudden acceleration or a defective gas pedal, it is important that you know what to do. First, it is essential that the car is stored in the same condition as it was at the time of the accident. This means that the vehicle should be stored in a secure facility and that no repairs should be made to the car. It also means that no parts should be removed or replaced after the accident. It is necessary to preserve the vehicle so that an automotive engineer and crash analysis expert can inspect the car to see if the car was defective.
It is also important to take photographs and video of the car so that the condition of the vehicle after the accident can be best understood. This provides very valuable evidence to automotive experts and accident reconstruction experts. Photographs of a defective automobile are also very compelling to show to a jury at trial.
Finally, it is essential that you contact an experienced sudden acceleration attorney as soon as possible after the accident to investigate your case and the cause of the injuries suffered in the accident. Our experienced Michigan law firm will immediately begin our investigation, assist you with your claims process, and determine if there is a valid products liability lawsuit that can be filed for your accident. If there is a potential defective automobile case, we will preserve your vehicle and hire an automotive engineering expert to inspect the vehicle for defects.
