Americans, including Missouri residents, rely heavily on their cars to get them from one place to another. Missouri is a large state and without personal motor vehicles, people couldn't get to their work or to their homes. In order to travel safely by cars, people rely on other drivers. They trust that other drivers are paying attention to the roadways and are not engaging in dangerous behavior behind the wheel.
However, people also place their trust in car manufacturers. They trust that safety mechanisms in the car are in place and working. This includes important safety features like seatbelts and airbags. These safety features are supposed to help keep people safe should a serious car accident occur. Sadly, auto product makers cannot be trusted any more than other drivers can. Auto part defects are common and often cause serious injuries. In these cases, an auto product liability suit might be necessary to hold these companies responsible.
