Many injuries care caused by defective or unsafe automobiles. Failing seatbacks, exploding gastanks, airbags that do not work – all of these are a result of companies putting profits before safety. In order to properly investigate these claims it is most important that the vehicle be preserved so do not let the insurance company junk the car.
