Steering Wheel Malfunctions
When purchasing a vehicle, a consumer must expect that it has been well designed. There is a kind of trust that exists between product makers and consumers. A new car, or one under a warrantee, should be reliable to drive. Vehicles with defects break that trust and put drivers and passengers in physical danger.

We can help you better understand your options and take a stand against this injustice. Contact our offices at 800-242-874 for more information.
What You Need to Know
One of the most common vehicle defects is a dysfunctional steering column. Many makes and models have had inherent design flaws in this essential component. A steering wheel that malfunctions can render the driver literally incapable of maneuvering the vehicle while it is in motion.
The following are some signs that your steering wheel may be malfunctioning:
- The wheel is too difficult to turn while vehicle is at rest and in motion.
- The vehicle does not respond to a turning steering wheel
- You turn the wheel one way and the vehicle turns another way
- Groaning, hissing, or whining noises occur when you turn the wheel
- The wheel locks while the car is in motion and cannot be turned
Victims of defective automobile accidents may be eligible for financial compensation for physical damages and other losses.
