Faulty Door Latches
Often the most important safety provisions on an automobile are also the most basic. Like the tires or even the windshield, door latches are an elemental part of the vehicle yet are vital for the safety of a driver and passengers because they keep the doors shut and secure. This protects those in the car from debris and other surrounding objects. Safely latched doors also keep drivers and passengers from getting ejected from the vehicle during a rollover accident.
Flaws with an automobile’s door-locking mechanism can result in devastating injuries and even death. If you or a loved one has suffered severe injuries in a car accident due to faulty door latches, you may be able to hold the car manufacturer responsible.

Why Door Latches are Important
Faulty door latches are especially dangerous because the automobile owner typically has no idea about the defect until it is too late. The force of an accident can cause the doors to swing open, which can allow unwanted objects or debris inside the vehicle while also leaving the passengers vulnerable to ejection. When doors unwontedly fly open, there is an increased risk of the following injuries:
- Blunt force trauma
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Road rash
Faulty locking mechanisms are serious flaws that can result in life-altering injuries as you are ejected from the vehicle as well as possibly entrapped or crushed by the car.
