Collision Avoidance Technology Defects

In today's world, cars have not only taken on new sleeker looks but also come equipped with advanced technology that is meant to keep its drivers safe and, in some instances, even take over driving to avoid an accident. With the onslaught of new car systems to make the driving experience easier and safer, many automakers have made it a point to focus on pushing out a new and improved technology to appeal to the modern consumer: automatic collision avoidance systems. However, these new features seem to be doing anything but keeping their drivers safe from harm. Riddled with safety defects and system malfunctions, these collision avoidance technologies have actually caused many accidents and road injuries.

  • What Is Collision Avoidance Technology?

    Collision Avoidance Technology or CAT systems were installed in vehicles to provide drivers with safety alerts of potential collisions on the road. In more recent years, the newer systems are now designed to have the option to react autonomously to help the driver avoid road collisions. CAT systems may include but are not limited to sensors, cameras, radar, and computers that collect and interpret data in real time. The collision avoidance tech is designed to save lives, but unfortunately, these safety features can malfunction, causing severe or even life-threatening situations for drivers who rely on them to work correctly.

  • What Are the Most Common Defects?

    When drivers rely on car safety systems and faulty collision avoidance systems, they could risk severe road injury. However, collision avoidance is not the only technology being brought into question. In recent years the most common defects found with CAT-like systems have been the following:

    • Emergency Breaks
    • Automated Breaks
    • Power Steering
    • Airbags
    • Ignition
    • Windshield wipers
    • GPS navigation
    • Engine control
    • Acceleration
    • Automatic transmission
    • Alarm system
    • Cruise Control
    • Electronic Stability Control
    • Communication system
    • Tire pressure monitor

    If you have recently been involved in a car accident and believe it was caused by any one of the previously mentioned items, you may be entitled to receive financial compensation. Complete our free case evaluation form today to learn more about how we can help your accident case.

  • Who Is Responsible for the Defective Technology?

    When it comes to defective CAT systems, auto manufacturers and car makers are most commonly held liable for any damages sustained. However, in some cases, the automakers will outsource parts of their production and are not always aware of the dangers or defects some of these products may present. In other cases, some defective auto parts cases may place the blame on dealerships or auto repair shops whose "negligence" may have altered the car parts or systems in question or have failed to properly repair cars, leaving a severe safety risk for the drivers.

  • Has My Car Been Recalled?

    If you believe your car may have been recalled due to defective collision avoidance technology, we highly recommend you head to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website to follow recall news or search for current and past recalls. To see if your car has been recalled, you'll need to find the car's 17-character Vehicle Identification Number VIN, which is located on your car's windshield or registration card. For more information on whether your car was recalled for a defective CAT, contact our defective product attorneys today. 

  • How Can an Attorney Help My Case?

    Defective collision avoidance systems have become a significant source of stress for car companies that promise better car safety components and more tech-heavy automobiles to their consumers. However, the more advanced technology has come at a high cost when it fails them. Hiring an attorney will significantly improve your odds of getting the justice you deserve when you're injured after relying on CAT.

    Computer-driven cars and crash avoidance technology may sound like the safer way to get behind the wheel, but until car companies can guarantee secure technology, consumers are at risk of auto defects and severe and even life-threatening injuries. Have you or someone you know been involved in a car accident or has sustained injuries due to failing collision avoidance technology? In that case, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.
Georgia J.
General Injury
It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.
Antonia C.
Slip and Fall
I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.
Todd E.
Homeowners Insurance
I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
