Door Latch Failures Lawsuit Injury Lawyer

When a vehicle door latch fails due to a defect in design or manufacturing, it can pose a serious risk to occupants while driving. Not only can passengers or drivers be in danger during regular use, a door latch failure during an accident can create a higher risk for injury. Those injured due to a vehicle door latch failure may be able to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer to pursue compensation for their injuries.

Door latch failures have occurred in many different vehicles, especially those manufactured by General Motors or Chevrolet. When a door latch releases without warning, especially during an accident, there is a higher risk of occupants being thrown from the vehicle. An accident that may have only caused minor injuries can result in serious injuries if a person is crushed during a rollover or is thrown into another object.

Defective Vehicle Door Latch Recalls

Vehicles are tested for crashworthiness and are expected to withstand some impact with components failing. When a product like a door latch is defective and fails during an accident and if someone is injured due to this failure, it is possible to hold the manufacturer responsible. There have been documented instances of injuries caused by defective vehicle door latch problems, including those involving known recalls on these components. Some recent issues involve:

Door latch failures can increase the severity of injuries during an accident. Since the injuries are a result of a manufacturer defect, victims have an opportunity to seek monetary compensation from the manufacturer. While the initial accident may have been caused by the at-fault driver, if the injuries are attributed to a door latch failure, it may be possible to pursue a product defect lawsuit.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
