Improperly Installed Windshields
An automobile’s windshield serves a very important purpose. Aside from protecting drivers and passengers from the wind, the windshield provides an important structural and safety element for a vehicle. When a windshield is incorrectly installed, drivers and their passengers may suffer serious injuries in the event of a collision.

The Dangers of Improper Installation
Without a properly installed windshield, the safety and structural integrity of an automobile are compromised. Some of the potential dangers of an improperly installed windshield are:
- Roof collapses, especially in the case of a rollover
- Drivers and passengers being ejected from the automobile after an accident
- Windshield cracks and breaks, which result in limited visibility
Any of these defects may seriously injure drivers and their passengers. An improperly installed windshield is usually someone’s fault. This is a prime example of product liability.
In most cases, the guilty party is either the automobile’s manufacturer or a third party windshield repair service. To determine who is at fault, you must know whether your windshield has been replaced since it was manufactured.
