You’ve been injured in a car accident, but you can’t figure out why it happened. It wasn’t the fault of you or another driver. What you didn’t know is you were driving a defective vehicle. When a vehicle causes an accident because of how it was made or maintained, it is known as “crashworthiness.” This could mean defective design or workmanship, poor maintenance by the corporate owner, or negligent conduct on the part of others who came into contact with the vehicle.

HKQ represents victims, including passengers, who have suffered injuries or fatalities, caused by unsafe vehicles. Serious injury or death from a defective vehicle could include roll-overs from narrow wheel base vehicles, a collapsed roof that did not have adequate support, seat belt malfunction that caused serious injury or ejection during a crash.

Crashworthiness cases are extraordinarily technical and complex, and giant auto manufacturers spare no expense in defending them. That’s why these cases require tremendous experience and resources - the kind we have at HKQ. Our firm has litigated dozens of Unsafe Vehicle Cases.

We’re proud to have won the only jury verdict in Pennsylvania history against an auto manufacturer for failure to install an airbag in its vehicle.

We have an unparalleled track record in vehicle crashworthiness cases both in and out of the courtroom in Northeastern Pennsylvania.


Because of the complexity and cost of pursuing unsafe vehicle cases, you need a law firm like HKQ with the necessary experience and resources. Our team of lawyers will determine what caused the accident and who is responsible for the defect using our knowledge of vehicle design, manufacturing, and technology. If you or a loved one has been injured because of a defective or unsafe vehicle, contact our PA Personal Injury Lawyers or call today for a FREE consultation toll-free at (800) 760-1529. Call us now. Waiting can jeopardize your legal rights.

When we say, “No one will work harder for you.℠” It’s not just a slogan. It’s our promise.

Remember, if you have been involved in any type of accident, NEVER sign any type of document, or agree to any type of medical testing or you may waive important legal rights.
