A Stalled Out Vehicle On The Highway Is An Accident Waiting To Happen

A Stalled Out Vehicle On The Highway Is An Accident Waiting To HappenAnyone that has ever experienced a flat tire knows that the side of the road is not a safe place to be hanging out. For that matter, just walking along the side of the highway can prove to be a dangerous task. We live in an age where we expect our products, vehicles, and everything else between to be reliable, safe, and convenient. Why shouldn't we? Breakthroughs in technology, science, and various other areas of society are supposed to make our lives better, but what happens when they have the opposite effect?

The world is dangerous enough without vehicle recalls being added to the equation, but unfortunately, it appears as if they are here to stay. We must make every effort to remain safe, keep our children and other passengers, as well as people in other vehicles free of harm. Keep reading information like this, and pass the info along, to contribute to the efforts. Have you, or another person that you know, been injured in an accident that is related to an auto recall? If so, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, loss of wages, and various other elements. Give our office a call if you believe a negligent act of a company or a malfunctioning part is to blame for your injuries, to discover if you have a case.

Recall Expected To Begin On August 24, 2017

Chrysler is issuing recall number T36, which involves some of their most popular models. An electrical short can occur, resulting in an increased risk of fire, as well as, your vehicle stalling out. It was brought, to the company's attention, that a sudden failure to the alternator is a possibility. This stoppage increases your risks of becoming involved in an accident, as a vehicle can crash into your rear end, or you may even lose control and wreck into another car, pedestrian, or immovable object. Severe injuries may happen, and that is not even mentioning anything about the fire hazards posed to you by the alternator failure.

A potential 442,214 affected units are involved in this recall, but since the models are prominent in our region, they could be parked, right in our backyard. Chrysler will notify owners, but individuals should also feel free to call their customer service department at 1-800-853-1403 to get the most relevant and up-to-date information. The models included in this particular recall are...

  • 2011-2014 Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger, Chrysler 300, Dodge Durango

  • 2012-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles

Now hold on a minute before you get too riled up, as not every one of these vehicles is involved. The units must come equipped with electro-hydraulic power steering (EHPS), a 3.6 or 5.7L engine, and 160, 180 or 220 amp alternator. If you drive one of these models or know someone that does, take the necessary precautions, contact the proper people, and get the issue resolved quickly, which will hopefully keep you and others safe and sound.

Certified dealers will inspect the alternator, and if the numbers match, replace them free of charge. However, that does not help you if you become injured before this action takes place, and we want you to know that we are here if you should need our services. Our team will set up a personal plan of action, just for your case. We help the individual and do not only treat people as a paycheck, or a number. If you are owed compensation, we will do everything in our power to get you a fair and just settlement.
