If you cause an accident because of a defective part, you may still be responsible. You should contact your insurance company as soon as the accident happened and tell them about it, and your insurance company will protect you from the accident.
You may also have a claim against the body shop where your car was repaired, or the manufacturer where your car was manufactured, for the defective auto part. But it’s important if you were in an accident and you believe the accident was caused by a defective auto part to contact your insurance company to make sure your insurance company does what you pay them to do, which is to protect you from any type of liability or at fault from an accident.
