When you are injured in an accident caused by a vehicle defect, you may be entitled to take legal action against the manufacturer. Automobile manufacturers have a duty to craft and assemble vehicles with the highest safety standards in mind. When they fail to do so and injury follows, it is a good idea to discuss your options with an experienced lawyer to learn if you may have cause to file suit.
Many manufacturers issue recalls when a run of vehicles is found to have a potential defect. These can help owners avoid injury by taking their vehicles in for necessary repairs. It is important to note, however, that a recall is not a shield against liability. You may be entitled to seek compensation for injuries sustained in a defective vehicle accident even if a recall has been issued. Discuss your options with a lawyer before you accept an offer from insurance to make sure you are not waiving your rights.
