Defective Vehicle Lawyer in Florida

Aggressive Legal Representation

An increasing number of motor vehicle accidents are caused by vehicle defects, including defective tires, airbags, seat belts, and fuel system failure. If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective vehicle, you need a lawyer who will take action to represent your case and help you obtain fair compensation.

Often, cases involving defective vehicles are difficult to win, since the lawsuit is typically against a multi-million dollar manufacturing company with the resources to defend itself, even against legitimate charges. However, at The Law Offices of Richard B. Troutman in Florida, we have successfully represented many complex defective product and SUV rollover cases. Contact a lawyer from our Florida personal injury law firm today to help you assert your rights and obtain the compensation you deserve.

  • Gas Tank Explosions

Defective Tires

Defective tires are a hazard on the road and can lead to serious injury, especially if the driver is traveling at high speeds. Tire blowouts are particularly common and are often caused by tire tread separation. When a tire blowout occurs, the driver may lose control and collide with another vehicle or object, or, especially in the case of an SUV, the blowout may lead to a rollover accident. Any of these situations can lead to a serious injury, not to mention property damage. If you have been injured in Florida due to a defective tire, contact a product liability or SUV rollover lawyer at the Law Offices of Richard B. Troutman today. We will help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

SUV rollover

Sport utility vehicles (SUVs), originally designed as off-road vehicles, have become popular family cars in recent years. Due to their high center of gravity, SUVs are more prone to rollover accidents than smaller vehicles. When drivers swerve to avoid accidents, it is easy for them to lose control of the SUV, often resulting in a rollover as the top-heavy vehicle is set off-balance.

While you would think the vehicle would be manufactured with more safety features in mind to appeal to their major marketing audience, many of the original safety features have actually been removed from the vehicle. Roll bars that once protected the driver and passengers from a roof crush in a rollover situation are no longer a feature of the modern SUVs.

If you have been injured in Florida as the result of an SUV rollover, or lost a loved one due to a rollover accident, contact a lawyer at The Troutman Law Firm for effective legal representation.

Gas Tank Explosions

Gas tank explosions can lead to serious injury or even wrongful death in the event of an accident. Newer cars and trucks often have the gas tank positioned inside the vehicle’s frame where they are protected. However, vehicles that are not properly designed, particularly older models, have gas tanks mounted on the outside of the frame where they can be easily damaged in the event of a collision.

If a gas tank is punctured during a high-speed collision, it is possible for the tank to rupture and explode, engulfing the vehicle in flames. Victims of gas tank explosions may experience severe burns, disfigurement, permanent scars, or even death.

If you have suffered an injury as the result of a gas tank explosion, or have lost a loved one in a tragic accident resulting from a defective vehicle, contact The Troutman Law Firm for a consultation today.
