    Defective Product Claims

    Carjacking victims may have legal rights to compensation. If an automatic door lock system caused a door to be unlocked and a carjacking occurred as a result, the auto maufacturer may be liable. Corporations and companies which design, make and sell products can be held liable for a defective product. Call us for a FREE CONSULTATION to discuss your case at (610) 825-0500.

    Automatic Door Locks & Carjacking

    Imagine the following scenario. A family is driving late at night in an unfamiliar area of town. The driver pulls over to the side of the road to look up directions and puts the car into park. The automatic door lock mechanism is triggered, and the car doors are now unlocked. As a result, a group of criminals gains access to the car. The family is robbed, and the driver is killed.

    Automatic door locks are common in thousands of cars being driven across the U.S. today. The problem is that these locks were designed so that the car doors would be unlocked whenever the car is put into park, like the example above. These kinds of door lock systems are fundamentally flawed. Essentially, drivers have no control over the security of their own cars in certain situations. Only drivers and the occupants of a car should control when the doors are locked or unlocked. It’s a security or safety concern. 

    Compensation for Carjacking Victims

    Car manufacturers can be held liable to victims and their families. They, and other parties, can be ordered to compensate an injured victim for injuries, medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. In the event of death, surviving family members may be able to make claims for compensation for the loss of their loved one.
