  • Briggs Winston This is just a small sampling of the types of products that may cause harm because they are negligently designed or defectively built. Even if the product or device that caused your injury is not listed, we would be happy to talk with you about your case. We have the experience and the resources to get your case on the right track and get you the recovery you deserve.

Auto Product Defect

Investigations of motor vehicle accidents must be thorough. The possibility that an auto product defect played a role should always be taken into consideration. While a defect may not have caused an accident outright, it is possible that the defect added to the damage. For example, a truck accident may be caused by a truck driver rear-ending the victim, but a defective airbag not deploying may have meant additional harm that could have been prevented. At the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm, we take all possibilities into consideration.

Our aggressive Atlanta attorneys have more than 30 years of experience conducting thorough investigations of car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents. We know what to look for to determine if an auto defect played a role in the collision.

What Type of Auto Defect Does Your Case Involve?

These cases tend to involve a defect in one or more of the vehicle’s parts such as:

  • Defective airbags
  • Defective brakes
  • Defective tires
  • Defective seat belts
  • Defective seats

Briggs Winston We will look for these types of defects in the victim’s vehicle. We will also determine if a defect in the negligent driver’s vehicle played a role in the accident.

Even if we are unable to discover evidence of a defect, we will take great care to determine who was at fault and to find all opportunities to get full compensation for the victim. We want to see that all costs incurred because of the motor vehicle accident are covered.

Representing Georgia Accident Injury Victims

The Briggs Law Firm specializes in representing people and the families of people injured or killed due to the carelessness and recklessness of others. Our founder, W. Winston Briggs, has tried more than 200 jury trials in his 30 year career. Mr. Briggs is a skilled trial lawyer well known for his ability and willingness to try cases. That results in higher settlements to our clients because insurance companies recognize that Mr. Briggs is a seasoned and fearless litigator who will try cases if they don’t pay the full value of the claim. If the case must be tried, there is no better firm to have on your side.

Winston and his team were the best I’ve ever dealt with. Honestly, I’ve hired many law firms in the past 10 years and no other law firm made me feel as important as Winston Briggs. To them I wasn’t just another case, I was family and for that I’m forever grateful. They got me a settlement that I deserved and they fought tooth and nails to make sure I wasn’t being taken advantage of. Nicole, kept me updated with my case’s progress and anytime I had a question she was on it! I felt like I was the only client because of how personalized they made it feel. Best of the best hands down. Thank you once again for everything you did for my family and I!
EM Watson, Former Client
After interviewing attorneys recommended by other cyclists, I engaged W. Winston Briggs as my attorney because he seemed to have the best grasp of my situation and because, of the attorneys I interviewed, Winston had the most litigation experience. Six months after the collision, we have received a policy limit settlement from the driver’s insurance company, and Mr. Briggs has addressed the subrogation claim of my health insurance company, resulting in a substantial reduction of their claim.
Tom Erdmanczyk, Former Client
The case required Mr. Briggs to make numerous trips to Virginia to take on the responsible parties on their home turf. Although it required significant effort, at the end of the day, Mr. Briggs successfully forced the responsible companies to accept responsibility for my husband’s death and to pay a settlement that will take care of my son and me over the course of our lives. The event was tragic but I am very pleased that I hired Winston to represent me and my son in the case.”
Mary Ann Garrard, Former Client
I injured myself requiring surgery when I fell at a hotel in New Orleans while on business. The insurance company for the hotel initially denied responsibility for my injury and then later offered me only a modest sum to settle the case, claiming there were multiple problems with my claim. I retained Winston Briggs to handle my claim and he did the rest. Without having to go through a lawsuit, Mr. Briggs convinced the hotel’s insurance company to pay more than six times the amount they had offered me to settle the claim before I hired Mr. Briggs. I hope I never need his services again but, if I do, I wouldn’t think of hiring any other attorney to represent me.
Ed Dietzel, Former Client
I am extremely pleased I hired The Briggs Law Firm and would highly recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in the position of needing a personal injury lawyer, and particularly, one who has been injured in a bicycle accident. Once the insurance carriers learned Mr. Briggs was my lawyer, they accepted responsibility for the accident and compensated me for my injuries.
Bruce Fernald, Former Client
To those injured; I’m writing to show everyone out there that Mr.Winston Briggs is here to help you. As he listened to my story I realized that he sincerely cared and knew that, even though the injury occurred, he was able to see forward and find ways to help. Winston through the years has demonstrated that he is on the cutting edge of injury recovery. He makes a painful process turn into a more profitable and emotional reward...
Brandon Johnson, Former Client
Attorney Briggs accepted my case, within a month the defendant was served, and less than a year my case was settled. To him I am indebted for his enthusiastic, encouragement and support he and his staff offered throughout the handling of my case. Unlike any other law firm, they continue to keep me in the loop on how my case progressed. I highly recommend Winston Briggs Law Firm to anyone looking for an attorney in Atlanta who cares and have integrity in his work getting the case settled, without a doubt, he’s the Best!
