A: A Virginia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. I'm sorry about your terrible accident and injury. To answer your question, it could be a mechanical issue. That could mean that it involves a manufacturing or design defect. It could also be a maintenance issue, or an operational issue. It would be necessary to investigate what happened to make that call. I recommend you reach out to Virginia attorneys to try to arrange a free initial consult to learn if you might have the basis for a claim. I hope you're okay. Good luck
