TAKE ACTION ON YOUR RECALL NOW Are You a Victim of Negligence?

Hundreds of thousands of vehicles have been recalled already this year, leaving many Americans wondering if it is safe to drive their cars. Horror stories of airbags spontaneously exploding, cars randomly turning off while operating, and even coolant leaks causing vehicles to catch fire have been hitting the news for months. It’s important to know that if you’ve run into issues with a recall recently, you are not helpless. When an automaker puts an unsafe vehicle on the streets, they are responsible for manufacturing defects. When a faulty part comes to their attention, it is their obligation to issue a recall. If they don’t, they may be liable for accidents caused by the defective parts. One important point is that manufacturers don’t always actively advertise their recalls. The publicity revolving around a recall is harmful for many automakers, so they will attempt to fly under the radar by not announcing it. This leaves the onus on you to find out if your vehicle

has a recall on it or not. If a manufacturing defect causes an accident and there was a recall already in place for the part that caused the accident, then the owner may hold some liability if he or she is aware of the recall and ignores it. Recalls have become more an unfortunate reality recently, and it is not uncommon for the same vehicle to have multiple recalls in a year. The reality of taking cars back to the dealership this often is such a burden on some car owners that they eventually elect to ignore the recall completely. Not only does this riddle our streets with unsafe cars but it also leaves the owner at risk. Our team at the Law Offices of Paul Levin takes all automotive defect cases seriously. There are laws in place to protect you from both manufacturer and owner negligence. Sometimes manufacturers aren’t even aware of defects until a lawsuit is filed. This means by simply starting the process, you could be saving other people from potential harm. Contact us today because serious injuries deserve exactly what we provide: serious experience.
