Motor Vehicle Defects
After an accident case, victims of an accident often delay making decisions because they don’t know what to do. Waiting to seek help will often have an impact on your case, because insurance companies and/or manufactures will commence their investigation immediately and allow evidence to be destroyed. Motor vehicles are often taken to storage lots or removed to salvage yards where the vehicles are sold for scrap and destroyed. If the person responsible for the accident allows his/her vehicle to be destroyed, you may lose your cause of action against the manufacturer because the motor vehicle and the manufacturing defect that caused it has been destroyed. Most insurance companies will purchase the vehicle that caused the accident and sell it to a scrap yard were it is destroyed and/ or the evidence disappears. It is important to send a spoliation letter to the responsible party, their insurance company and the scrap yard or storage facility immediately after the accident or to go to court to get a temporary injunction to preserve the evidence of the motor vehicle defect.
