Seeking Repairs For An Automotive Recall

Seeking Repairs for an Automotive RecallEvery once in awhile you may be faced with a safety recall that affects your vehicle. If you find this to be true of your vehicle, it is important that you contact the manufacturer immediately in order to receive the proper repairs to maintain the safety of your vehicle.

Even if you are not the original owner of the vehicle, you will still qualify for the recall repairs. The statute of limitations regarding no-charge recalls is eight years from the original sale date. Recalls are considered safety issues, and if not addressed they can cause personal injury or other accidents to occur. Therefore, the recall repairs are free of charge.


The Basics of Auto Recalls




To find out if there are any recalls on your vehicle, you should visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s recall portal to receive updates and valuable information regarding current vehicle recalls.

A recall is placed on a vehicle when the manufacturer has determined that a defective component may potentially cause harm and injury to the occupants. Some common auto recalls include the tires and the airbags of the vehicle.

Other recalls include broken or stuck accelerator controls, defective windshield wiper assemblies, collapsed car ramps or jacks, broken steering components, and wiring system problems, just to name a few. All of these issues can cause harm, and some may even cause the driver to lose control of their vehicle which may result in a serious accident.

Once you have determined there is a recall for something on your vehicle, the manufacturer must remedy the situation by making the necessary repairs to ensure safety, replace the defective parts, or offer a refund. If you have been injured already due to the recall, then you may be in the process of pursuing a defect claim which means you will need to find a product liability attorney or a personal injury attorney to help you seek compensation for the damages and injury that occurred due to the defective parts.


Personal Injury and Product Liability




Personal injury cases cover a wide range of injuries, and when it comes to product liability, the cases can become very challenging and complex. Companies and manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that their products are safe and will not cause harm to consumers. However, sometimes accidents happen, and you will want to seek compensation for your injuries.

Hiring a competent and knowledgeable attorney to help you with your case is the best first step to put you in the right direction. They will be able to help guide you through the process and make you aware of your rights as a consumer as you file your claim.

They can also help if you are finding it challenging to receive the repairs that are necessary due to the recall.
