NHTSA Launches Vehicle Safety Recalls Week

NHTSA Launches Vehicle Safety Recalls Week

In order to help drivers, ensure that the vehicle they are driving is safe, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has launched their first-ever Vehicle Safety Recalls Week as of March 2. The purpose of the awareness week is to encourage drivers to check if the vehicle they are driving has had any recalls issued for it. The NHTSA suggests taking the following steps to ensure that your vehicle is safe:

Step 1: Check your 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), located on the lower left of your car’s windshield, the label inside your driver-side doorjamb or your insurance documents.

Step 2: Search using your VIN at NHTSA.gov/Recalls. Your search will tell you if there’s an open safety recall affecting your vehicle and what steps to take.

Step 3: Get your vehicle repaired for free immediately if you have an open recall. Follow the steps indicated by the response to your VIN search. Your vehicle’s manufacturer is required by law to address your recall—and again it’s a FREE repair. The NHTSA says that they administered almost 900 safety recalls affecting over 38 million vehicles in 2019. However, only about 75% of vehicles recalled in a given year get fixed.

Defective and dangerous products come in many forms. Product and vehicle malfunctions result from poor design, reliability, manufacturing or defects and can result in serious injury including death. It’s safe to say that pretty much any consumer product has the potential to cause injury if the product is defective in some way. Most consumers reasonably believe that the products being sold to them are safe to be used in their homes. Sadly, not all products live up to that standard.

When products cause injuries to victims due to poor design, poor quality, or a manufacturing or product defect, injured victims can seek compensation for their pain, medical expenses and lost wages with a product liability claim. An experienced Miami products liability attorney will be able to help you build your soundest possible case so that you can recover the maximum amount of damages that you are entitled to.
