Have you or a loved one been seriously injured because of a defectively manufactured car Contact an experienced product liability lawyer today to discuss your options.
Recalls of cars and trucks are actually quite common. The NHTSA has a website called safercar.goiv at which consumers can search for recalls on their vehicles. A search for recalls on a 2005 Honda Civic turn up 7 recalls. In most cases, recalls apply to aftermarket parts that may have been installed by a repair shop, or to very small parts such as bolts, washers and so on. Normally, the remedy is to take the vehicle to a repair shop and have the potentially defective part repaired or replaced at the manufacturer’s expense. A product liability attorney can help protect your rights. In some cases, however, the recall may be over a design defect that seriously hampers the safety of the vehicle, not only for those riding in it, but for anyone involved in an accident with the vehicle as well.
Speak with an experienced defective product attorney immediately if you or a loved one have been injured in an accident that you believe was caused by a defective car or truck. Even if the accident would have happened anyway but the defect made the damage worse, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the3 manufacturer for medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering that directly result from the defective vehicle. Many car accident attorneys work on a contingent fee basis, which means that you pay them a fee only after they successfully recover compensation for you.

The rise in the number of pedestrian accidents, and the accompanying rise in the number of pedestrian fatalities is certainly disturbingly high. Our car accident lawyers know that pedestrians and cyclists are much more vulnerable to serious injury in accidents than passengers in cars and trucks. As such, the injuries sustained are often much more severe. Serious injuries that cause permanent disability are sadly common, and victims may require ongoing medical care for the rest of their lives. This medical care become incredibly expensive, very quickly. There may even be Colorado criminal charges for the driver of the car.
