Auto Defects Lawyers


With any product, consumers expect safety in addition to functionality. Because of the realities of modern life, cars are some of the most commonly used products. They are also some of the most dangerous, and when someone is injured due to an automobile or machinery failure, the consequences can be devastating. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a machinery defect, we are here for you.

Georgia Auto Defects Lawyers

At The Kaplan Firm, PC in Atlanta, we have extensive experience with some of the most complex automobile and machinery product liability cases in the state of Georgia. These have included cases against DePuy, Sulzer, Chrysler, Ford, Mitsubishi, Honda, Isuzu, Firestone, Michelin and General Motors.

Our auto defects lawyers are able to take our experience to work on motor vehicle crashes caused by:

  • Delamination of tires
  • Defective tires
  • Defective seat belts
  • Use of recall tires
  • Brake shift interlock
  • Ford rollover cases
  • Forklift defects
  • Cherry pickers
  • Seat belts and harnesses

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed due to one of the aforementioned faulty products, we may be able to pursue a case based on negligence, strict liability or implied warranties on issues involving but not limited to design negligence, testing/inspection failure, recall notice negligence and documentation negligence, including not providing adequate instructions, warnings and labels.

Some of our hallmark successes include:

  • $4.3 million for a defective minivan
  • $2.5 million for an SUV rollover
  • $4.25 million for injury sustained from defective seat belts
  • $5.6 million wrongful death suit from defective back door on a minivan

It is important to note that these cases can be unbelievably expensive. There is not a product defect case that is not a battle. The cases often settle, but they do not settle until huge amounts of money and time are spent. As auto defects lawyers, we understand this and are very selective so that we can devote the time and energy required to work toward the best possible resolution.Contact our lawyers for a free initial consultation with experienced auto defects lawyers.
