With the recent spate of auto product recalls due to defective vehicle parts, many consumers are exploring the potential benefits of filing lemon law claims in order to receive a full refund or vehicle replacement. Although these claims are indeed helpful, they unfortunately cannot turn back time when an individual or group suffers injury or even death from a defective vehicle or unsafe auto part. No one can. However, a Pennsylvania auto accident lawyer may be able to help injury victims or surviving family members of auto accident victims obtain financial restitution from negligent auto manufacturers responsible for a defective or unsafe vehicle’s effects.
Ever since the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act was enacted in 1966 (it is now coded as 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301) by the Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 390 million cars, buses, trucks, motorcycles, mopeds, recreational vehicles, and 46 million tires, 42 million child safety seats, and 66 million pieces of motor vehicle equipment have been recalled in order to fix safety defects. One can only imagine just how many incidents of serious injury and wrongful death have been caused by auto parts that were recalled far too late.
The aftermath of an auto accident may be an overwhelming experience for those involved or injured. In determining an auto accident’s cause, auto defects or unsafe auto parts may be fully responsible, thus placing auto manufacturers in a position of legal accountability. If you believe that a safety defect or dangerous auto part contributed to your auto accident injuries, or the loss of a loved one, then claims may be filed against auto manufacturers to assist with financial hardships as well as pain and suffering brought on by the accident or wrongful death.
