Connecticut Auto Defect Lawyers
Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve
At RisCassi & Davis, P.C., we have handled claims against manufacturers and sellers of automobiles and trucks for defects that have injured or killed the occupants.
In particular, our auto defect lawyers in Connecticut have been involved in claims involving sudden acceleration, braking failures, and transmission systems, absence of a gear shift interlock, vehicle rollover, and injuries from airbag deployment.
*Although airbags have saved lives, some may be unreasonably dangerous to certain people and when they deploy in certain types of accidents. In some instances, airbags have injured occupants when they deployed in low-speed collisions, accidents in which the occupants would have been far safer had there been no airbags.
Holding Manufacturers Accountable
Some of our claims against vehicle manufacturers have been based upon a lack of proper and adequate warnings and instruction, whether on the vehicle or in the owner’s manual. Under Section 52-572q of the Connecticut General Statutes, this is an additional basis on which a vehicle may be found defective.
We have also handled litigation involving negligent maintenance or repair of vehicles, resulting in injury. These claims differ somewhat in that they are not based upon strict liability for a defective product, but upon carelessness in the servicing or repair of the vehicle.
To get started, we invite you to call us at (860) 245-2412 or fill out our online contact form. Remember that our Connecticut auto defect lawyers will never charge any legal fees unless we are successful on your behalf.
