Motor Vehicle Defect Attorney in Columbus
Injured because your car had a defect? Call us.
The Columbus vehicle defect attorneys of Rourke and Blumenthal have successfully
obtained compensation through jury trial and settlement negotiations for
injuries relating to vehicle defects. Our attorneys represent clients
in Columbus, Franklin County, and all of Ohio in the pursuit of damages
for injuries sustained from the failure of seat belts, air bags, blown
tires, and other automobile features.
Motor Vehicle Defects
Product liability in car accidents involves a flaw in the design, a manufacturing
defect, or insufficient warnings. Rourke and Blumenthal has handled
all types of vehicle defect cases:
- Airbags failing to deploy (resulting in serious injury or death)
- Airbags deploying when they shouldn’t (one client lost an eye)
- Seat belt configurations (severed arms, broken ribs, fatalities)
- Rollover accidents in top-heavy vehicles (i.e., SUV, van, or bus)
- Tire blowouts due to defective design (tread separation)
- Child or infant car seats (improper restraint systems)
- Defective parts subject to auto recall
Mike Rourke and
Ken Blumenthal have nearly 50 years of combined experience in personal injury litigation,
including prior work representing insurance companies. This experience
proves invaluable in litigation against major car, truck and SUV manufacturers.
We have obtained major compensation for victims of auto defect accidents,
including a $3.1 million wrongful death award to the family of a woman
who died as a result of motor vehicle defect.
These cases require a major investment of time and resources. Our lawyers
gather only the best expert witnesses to testify in negotiations or at
trial. Our attorneys obtain corporate records of how the product was designed
and what knowledge the company had of the dangers when they took it to market.
