Auto Defects


Missouri Defective Products Attorneys

Cars and trucks are among the most highly engineered products on the market. Despite this fact, vehicle and component manufacturers sometimes fail to live up to their legal duty to produce products that are safe for general use, and an auto defect may occur.

Holding Car Manufacturers Accountable

It takes years and hundreds of millions of dollars to design a car and put it into distribution. Engineers at auto companies may recognize many defects in design and components. But the need to recover their investment drives auto manufacturers to ignore defects in design and to allow unsafe vehicles on the road. Auto manufacturers who recognize they have a problem with a car design will balance the cost of future litigation against the present cost of recalling and redesigning a vehicle. Sadly, they often make a business decision to deal with the repercussions of their defective vehicle down the road and not have it affect their current sales or profits. They are guided more by their short term profit incentives than their responsibility to the public.

Devereaux, Stokes, Fernandez & Leonard will work tirelessly to uncover the truth and hold car and vehicle component manufacturers accountable.
