Turnbull Holcomb has vast experience in cases involving those catastrophically injured or killed in auto accidents as a result of defective vehicles. We have handled cases involving seatbelt defects, air bag defects, tire failure, and brake system failure.
Defective airbag cases often involve scenarios in which an airbag inflates prematurely (or with too much force) or too late after impact. These defects can injury people involved in crashes who otherwise would have been unscathed had the airbag inflated correctly. Our attorneys have handled some of the most high-profile airbag defect cases in the United States, including in California and Nevada.
Although seatbelts have been mandatory in vehicles for quite some time, there still exist defects that can cause serious injury and death. For example, a study by the Center for Auto Safety found that approximately 14 Million 1993 to 2002 Chrysler vehicles had faulty seatbelt buckles that needed to be recalled.
Brake system failure cases is an area where Turnbull Holcomb excels. In July 2017, TCH partner Brett Turnbull obtained a $25 million verdict in a brake failure case in the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles County. In that case, the plaintiffs alleged that the brakes in a 2004 Infiniti QX56 SUV caused an accident that killed three people and caused an elderly driver to be wrongfully charged with vehicular manslaughter. Specifically, the allegations focused on Nissan North America Inc., the manufacturer, and its knowledge that the delta stroke sensor component in the braking system was faulty and could cause accidents and so-called "near-misses."
