Recall! Can Driving A Chevy Bolt Be Dangerous For Your Health?

This is not the first time we have discussed Chevrolet Bolt Electric Vehicles around here. It probably won't be the last time either. One of our previous articles revealed a battery pack issue beneath the back seat. You know, the kind that can cause sparks and send a car up in flames. Well, luckily, that fire hazard is not what we are here to discuss. 

Instead, the vehicles are being recalled for an entirely different reason, which we will get to here in a bit. But first, you should know that if you get injured in an accident due to a defective part or manufacturer negligence, you might be entitled to fair compensation. These organizations and their lawyers don't like to play nice, though. They offer victims tiny settlements that aren't even close to being enough to cover their recovery expenses.

Contact Our Personal Injury Attorneys To Get The Representation That You Deserve

Sometimes, the parties even try to put some or all of the blame on the victim. Such scenarios can lead to them not getting any money at all. Don't go it alone against a manufacturer, as that could be a monumental mistake. Our personal injury lawyers have been serving people in Fort Myers, Sarasota, Port Charlotte, and surrounding areas for over 30 years. The team will be more than happy to do the same for you.

Whenever a recalled car, truck, or SUV is part of the equation, the injured party must prove they didn't know about the recall or that their injuries occurred before it was issued. That can be a tall order, but it doesn't have to be, not with us on your side. Free case evaluations are available from our firm, which is big. 

Who wants to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars just to see if they have a case or not? Nobody, that's who. Plus, we saved the best for last. Clients only pay when they win. So, please, do not delay any longer. Give us a call, and let's go on the offensive, taking the fight to the negligent manufacturer that got you hurt.

A Brake Caliper May Fracture

Anyone wanting to learn more about this particular issue can do some research through the NHTSA. Their campaign number for it is 20V808000. Meanwhile, GM's recall number is N202321400. The 464 Chevrolet Bolt vehicles involved may have had improperly cast front left brake calipers installed. During a high-pressure braking event, the caliper can fracture. GM is expected to begin this recall on February 5, 2020.

Owners can certainly put some miles on their cars between now and then. There is nothing wrong with that. After all, what are vehicles for? However, if the fractures occur on the open road, crashes will surely follow. A bad brake caliper can cause a car to pull hard to one side. Brake fluid may start to leak, too, making the brake pedal spongy or soft.

Imagine for a moment that you are driving along when traffic stops in front of you abruptly. You hit the brakes to stop, but instead, the car pulls to the right and strikes one vehicle in the side and another in the rear. You and the other people could be left with broken bones, burns, brain injuries, and more. Medical bills aren't cheap in the modern world, and why should you be responsible for them when you did nothing wrong? The answer is you shouldn't. Hold the negligent manufacturer accountable with a personal injury attorney and get what you deserve.
