Defective Designs

When a door latch does not work properly on a motor vehicle, the vehicle's door may open while in motion, possibly ejecting the driver or passenger from the moving automobile. Faulty door latches may result in serious injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and head injuries in New York. As the victim of a defective door latch related injury, you have legal rights and should hire competent and aggressive legal representation right away. At Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP, our New York faulty door latch attorneys know that litigation can be used as a tool to persuade negligent auto product manufacturers to alter defective designs so that their products do not place consumers at risk for painful and devastating injuries.

Defective Ford Door Latches

The Ford Focus, four door and five door models manufactured from 2000 to 2002, may have door latch defects, and as many as 360,000 of these vehicles have been recalled by the Ford Motor Company. The defect occurs when the door latches become corroded and prevent the door from remaining closed. In some cases the door may not be able to open due to the buildup of corrosion. The following lists some of the other Ford vehicles that have been reported to have defective door latches:

  • 1997-2000 Ford F-150 trucks
  • 1997-2000 Ford Expeditions
