Accidents Caused by Auto Defects in Southeast Texas

Beaumont Auto Defect Litigation Attorneys

There are three things that lawyers for the insurance companies and automakers do not want to see on the other side of the table: Attorneys who are experienced; attorneys who are not afraid to take cases to trial; and attorneys who have the financial and professional resources required to withstand their stalling tactics.

At Clay Dugas & Associates, we have the experience and resources required to take on major manufacturers and have proven our willingness on numerous occasions to take these Goliaths to court and hold them responsible. As a firm, we handle auto defect injury and wrongful death claims on behalf of clients from throughout Southeast Texas.

Such cases may involve:

  • Vehicles prone to rollovers
  • Rollover roof crush injuries
  • Crashworthiness issues
  • Seatback collapse injuries
  • Seatbelt defect cases
  • Airbag safety
  • Tire tread defects (de-beading)
  • Improperly laminated glass
  • Post-collision fuel-fed fires

    Call Now so We Can Get to Work on Your Case

    Aside from contacting and hiring a Beaumont car accident lawyer as soon after the accident as possible, the most important action to take in an auto defect case is to preserve the vehicle. Once that important step has been taken, we will begin searching for product or vehicle recall information and similar accidents involving cars that share the same characteristics.

    Because of the way automobiles and automobile components are manufactured today, many different models may have to be carefully examined. This may take some time. However, we do not cut corners. We are thorough in our preparation, strong in our advocacy, and determined to handle your auto defect case not just quickly, but correctly as well.

    Contact Clay Dugas and Associates online or call us at (409) 226-0990 to schedule your complimentary consultation. We offer legal services in English and Spanish.
