Impala Door Latch Failure Lawsuits

When a door latch is defective, it can cause serious injuries or make an injury accident more dangerous. Door latches are intended to be easy to use, yet secure the door closed, unless the handle is used to open the door. When a door latch fails, it can cause a door to swing open during an accident or trap an occupant inside when they need to escape in a fire or water submersion situation. When a Chevrolet Impala door latch fails, it can reduce the safety for the passengers and driver.

Chevrolet Impalas have been a popular make and model for many decades, with a reputation as a quality vehicle. However, even a vehicle with a long history of safety can have bad components. Issues with any part that improves safety can be detrimental. When a door latch does not work correctly, a door can open while driving or during a crash, risking a partial or complete ejection of a passenger or driver from the vehicle. This can cause serious limb and head injuries, as well as fatal injuries if the person is completely thrown from the vehicle.

Defective Chevrolet Door Latches

Both the design and manufacturing aspects of vehicle components are vital for safety. Some door latches have been poorly designed, resulting in a recall of all the makes and models with that particular part. In other circumstances, the door latch is designed correctly, but mistakes in the manufacturing process can cause one or an entire batch to be poorly made, resulting in failure during use.

Whether a door latch fails due to design or creation, it is the manufacturer’s responsibility to catch these errors. If you or a loved one were injured due to a Chevy Impala door latch failure, contact the experienced legal team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP.
