Car manufacturers are required to run a very controlled set of engineering, computer and field tests to ensure their cars pass the toughest tests for crashworthiness. But just because a car model passes a test in the lab under controlled conditions, it doesn't mean the vehicle will be safe from the physical forces that occur during a real accident under highway conditions.
If you were involved in a car accident in Texas, your car's crashworthiness may have contributed to the extent of your injuries or the death of your loved one. Even if you have accepted an insurance settlement from the other driver's (or your own) insurance company for liability damages, you may still have a legitimate product liability case against the car manufacturer or contracted auto parts makers or installers.
Talk to an attorney on the auto defect litigation team at Tinsman & Sciano, Inc., in San Antonio. We understand the complex technical nature of litigation involving physical forces that result in an accident, and we work with leading independent experts to investigate and prepare the strongest case possible for maximum compensation.

- Tire defects, tread separation, blowouts
