At least two people were injured in a New Jersey car accident after an out-of-control car struck a vehicle parked in a driveway. According to a news report in The Record, the driver of a car lost control going west on West Central Boulevard in Palisades Park, New Jersey. The car then drove onto a lawn, over a wall, and, eventually struck another vehicle parked in front of a home.
When such an unusual and unexpected car accident occurs, there are often many questions that need to be answered relating to how, and, why a motorist lost control of their vehicle. Could an auto product defect be the cause of this accident? In car accident cases where a vehicle defect is suspected, it would be beneficial to the victims to preserve the vehicle in its “time of the accident” condition. This means not getting any repairs done, and, not altering the vehicle. It is important for an accident reconstruction expert to carefully examine the vehicle in its “time of the accident” condition for any evidence of auto defect, or, malfunction.
If it is determined through careful investigation, and, analysis that an accident was caused by a product defect, the victim, or, victims injured in the accident may have an auto products liability claim. If you or a loved one have been injured in an auto accident caused by a defective auto part or vehicle malfunction, it is important that you retain the services of an experienced New Jersey auto product liability attorney, familiar with cases pertaining to car defects, who has a successful track record in litigating car accident, and, auto product liability claims.
