VEHICLE RECALLS AND PERSONAL INJURY

Vehicle recalls can happen to a number of products in a car at anytime: airbags, seat belts, windshields, etc. Usually a company will make a public announcement of what product is being recalled. Those who own a recalled product should check with their dealer or car manufacturer. If you end up being injured by a recalled product, this is product liability. You have a limited amount of time to file a claim specified by the company or manufacturer. More common things that can be recalled in cars are: 

  • Accelerator pedals that break or stick

  • Seats that fall back and don't stay in the place they belong when you are driving

  • Windshield wipers that break and fall apart

  • Airbags that deploy when they are not supposed to

  • Wiring issues that can cause fires or lighting to go out

  • Steering elements that can cause loss of control of the car.

Remember, if you do have a car that has anything recalled on or in it DO NOT drive it. Arrange for a rental (usually companies that recall will provide a rental) and let the company fix it. Your life is worth more than a defaulty airbag.
