There is nothing more frightening for a driver than to have something mechanical go wrong with their vehicle that is the fault of the manufacturer. Occasionally an auto manufacturer will recall a vehicle part due to malfunction and the consumer must present the vehicle to the dealership for repair of the malfunctioning part. This is of no cost to the consumer as the producer pays for the replacement and cost of vehicle repair. The vehicle manufacturer is wholly responsible for recall of vehicles with mechanical malfunction, but the consumer driving the recalled vehicle carries some element of responsibility to get their vehicle into the dealership for repairs as soon as possible. When consumers receive a recall notice, they must follow through with a visit to the dealership to repair the mechanical failure.
Unfortunately, repairs won’t help with medical treatment or income lost when a malfunction results in a serious injury. Springer & Lyle, personal injury attorneys can help consumers injured by vehicular defects and malfunctions. Consumers injured by a product defect must recognize the importance of contacting Springer & Lyle or another qualified law firm as soon as possible regarding any injuries received due to vehicular defects or malfunctions.
