Auto Product Liability Claims


When a person buys a car, they expect that the vehicle was designed to provide safety for the driver and passengers. Vehicles that are not carefully constructed and designed can cause serious injury. As such, vehicle manufacturers have a responsibility to build vehicles that do not put occupants in danger, and that protect occupants during reasonably foreseeable crashes.

Our St. Louis product liability attorneys have secured more than half a billion dollars in verdicts and settlements in cases nationwide from our centrally-located St. Louis offices. Wherever your injury took place, you need nationally-recognized, premier litigators in your corner in order to take on the big car companies.

We Are Experienced in Handling Cases Involving Vehicle Defects

Bringing an action for injuries caused by a defective motor vehicle is complex and can require a great deal of time and resources. In order to successfully pursue a defective vehicle claim, a firm must have knowledgeable attorneys as well as an understanding of the technical principles involved in manufacturing and designing a motor vehicle. At The Simon Law Firm, P.C., we are one of the very few firms that have the experience and resources necessary to successfully handle a defective motor vehicle claim.

We handle a wide range of vehicle defect cases, including those involving:

  • ires / rims / wheels / tread separation
  • Roll-overs
  • Crashworthiness
  • Seatbelts
  • Airbags
  • Improperly mounted gas tanks
  • Defective fuel injectors
  • Crush injuries from automobile doors and seats
  • Defective power systems
  • Faulty brakes

What Does “Crashworthy” Mean?

Even when a crash occurs that was caused by driver error rather than a defective part, the resulting injuries may be greatly enhanced because a car is not “crashworthy.” For example, a vehicle may be struck in such a way that it begins to roll. This roll may not be the result of a defective part; however, if during the roll the doors fly open and the people in the car are injured more severely because the door latch was defective, the manufacturer of the car or the latch may be liable for the enhanced injuries, as the car was not crashworthy.

What Are Punitive Damages?

Punitive damages may be awarded above and beyond damages to compensate a plaintiff for his / her injuries. Punitive damages are intended to punish vehicle manufacturers and encourage them to fix inherent defects in vehicle designs that have resulted in injuries.
