Defective Car Door Lawyers in Savannah
Choose the Fearless Advocates at Jamie Casino Injury Attorneys
Out of all the car parts that could malfunction and cause injury in an auto accident, car door latches are rarely considered to be a significant hazard. In reality, car door latches play a key role in passenger safety during a car crash.
A car door latch that locks properly is key to surviving front- or side-impact collisions and rollover accidents. If the latch were to unexpectedly disengage, a passenger in the vehicle could be forcefully ejected from the vehicle.
At the same time, if a car door latch fails to keep the door closed during a crash, the stability of the cabin may be jeopardized and could be at risk for caving in, further injuring those inside.
If you have an injury claim involving a faulty car door latch, Jamie Casino Injury Attorneys is the firm to call. Our seasoned advocacy can help you recover the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.

Proving a Car Door Defect
If you believe you may have been injured because of a malfunctioning car door latch, you’ll have to show proof will that the car manufacturer designed or built the door incorrectly.
You must be able to demonstrate that:
- The latch cannot remain secured during a collision.
- The latch fails to meet common safety standards set by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA).
- The door malfunction in your accident was caused by a faulty or insufficient latch.
- You or your passenger suffered severe injuries or death, which otherwise could have been prevented by a properly working door latch.
Injuries Caused by Defective Car Doors
If a door latch functions properly and the car door does not swing open in the event of an auto accident, the chances of a passenger being ejected from the vehicle and sustaining more serious injuries decrease significantly. Generally, the chances of surviving a car accident are higher if the person remains inside the cabin of the car, as that offers additional protection in a collision.
If someone is ejected from an open car door during a rollover or forceful head-on or side-impact collision, they may strike a tree, building, car, or another object.
We’re Not Afraid to Fight for You
Most defective car door claims result in an out-of-court settlement based on clear-cut evidence that the defective car door latch was responsible for the claimant’s injuries. However, many automakers prefer to take their chances with a trial, believing that it will be impossible to sufficiently prove the car door latches malfunctioned during an accident.
It is indeed difficult to prove that a car door malfunctioned – but the team at Jamie Casino Injury Attorneys is up to the challenge. Our car door defect attorneys are ready to investigate the incident, uncover evidence, and build an airtight case on your behalf. Our goal is to get you the maximum compensation possible.
