Accurately determining the cause of a motor vehicle accident is a consequential process. Once the cause(s) of a car accident has been investigated and accurately discerned, fault and liability can be clarified. At that point, anyone who has suffered harm due to the collision can start exploring their options to pursue rightful compensation.

The challenge is that accurately determining the cause(s) of any car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, pedestrian, scooter, or mass transit accident is not always a straightforward process. Often, vehicle defects that cannot be perceived at a glance play a critical role in why an accident happens and who should be held responsible for resulting harm.

Vehicle Defects Can Lead to Avoidable Accidents

Skilled legal professionals know that one of the first things that need to be done in the wake of an accident involves researching the makes, models, and vehicle identification numbers (VINs) of the vehicles in question. All too often, it turns out that some auto part defect has been reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and is the subject of either a recall effort or an initial investigation.

Understanding that a defective part may have played a role in a crash will help those affected construct their legal strategies accordingly. The manufacturer, designer, or distributor of the vehicle part may be liable for the harm caused by the accident.

If no known issues have been identified with the vehicles involved in the crash, it still may be prudent to have a skilled mechanic and crash reconstruction experts evaluate the situation. The collision in question is either the first or one of the first accidents that will inspire an investigation or recall effort on behalf of the NHTSA related to a new concern.
