Product Liability Claims Against Vehicle Manufacturers

While automobiles are safer than they were a few decades ago, many safety and design features cause injury, or fail to protect vehicle occupants, due to manufacturing or design defects.

If you were injured because of an auto defect, Scarcella Law Offices of White Plains, New York is ready to represent you in a product liability claim for damages. Our skilled and experienced trial lawyers are prepared to demonstrate how the product caused your injury. We work closely with clients to determine the extent of medical expenses, lost earnings and the impact on your family and personal life.

Do You Have a Good Case? Call 1-800-722-7529

With offices in Manhattan and White Plains, Scarcella Law Offices represents auto defect victims throughout New York City and Westchester, Putnam, and Rockland counties. Our firm has secured significant financial recoveries through trial or settlement for:

  • Defective seat belts — injuries sustained when belt latches give way, or when lap belts or shoulder harnesses spool out without catching
  • Airbag defects — air bags fail to deploy, or deploy too early or too late, often leading to serious face, neck, head and chest injuries
  • Blown tires — certain tires are known to cause accidents because of their defective design, as with treads that separate from the tire and lead to rollovers

We Take On the Automakers

In an auto defect lawsuit, our attorneys aggressively investigate to show that the accident was caused by a design defect (the product is inherently unsafe) or a manufacturing defect (improperly assembled or made with defective components or materials). We scrutinize tire and airbag recall notices and similar claims against the carmaker, and examine the manufacturing processes. Proving product liability often requires us to retain experts such as accident reconstructionists, or automotive or mechanical engineers.

To protect our clients' rights and ensure that they are fully compensated for injuries and losses, we are not afraid to take on the largest auto manufacturers, their parts suppliers, and their distribution chains. If you suffered permanent, disabling injury, we consult with economists and medical experts to address your future financial and medical needs.
