Handling Complex Cases With Unparalleled Expertise
Motor Vehicle Defect Attorneys in Columbus
Put 150+ Combined Years of Experience in Your Corner
The Columbus vehicle defect attorneys at Rourke & Blumenthal have successfully obtained compensation through jury trials 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 & Blumenthal has handled all types of vehicle defect cases, including:
- 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 a 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.
