Automobile Defects

Injured Due to Automobile Defects

Serious injury or death can result from a vehicle with defective components. While today’s cars are still the safest in history, the U.S. Transportation Department reported a total of 53.2 million vehicles were recalled in the United States in 2016.


Recalls And Safety Related Defects

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) enforces the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and may order recalls of vehicles that do not meet federal safety standards or that have safety-related defects. Safety-related defects are those that pose an unreasonable risk of harm in the operation of the motor vehicle. These defects may relate to steering or ignition systems, seats and seat belts, airbags, fuels systems and electrical components.


If You Suspect A Safety Related Issue

If you suspect there is a safety-related issue with your vehicle, make a complaint on NHTSA’s website SaferCar.gov. Before you buy that used car, look up the VIN online at SaferCar.gov to see if the vehicle has been recalled for any reason, and if so, whether it has been repaired.

I was involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, so I contacted the attorney that i had used in a previous case. I explained to them the situation and they advised me that there was no way that i would be able to recover anything so

In October 2010, my pregnant wife and I were in a horrendous accident in Charlotte, NC, caused by a drunk driver. We were struck head on by the driver travelling at nearly 100mph and sustained many life threatening injuries
