Car companies are often shown in advertisements talking about how safe their vehicles are. However, errors can be made and drivers can become hurt. Just by looking at the news you can see examples of recent recalls of cars because a defective part was shown to be dangerous.
Toyota was recently forced to recall more than 2 million cars and trucks because of a faulty gas pedal, which caused hundreds of accidents.
If you find that the car you drive has been issued a recall order, it is important to take it to the closest dealership and follow the instructions of the company. If you do not adhere to a recall order you may risk injuring yourself or a loved one by driving a potentially dangerous car.
If you believe that something went awry in your car causing you to be hurt in a car accident the first step you should take is to contact a legal professional. A car accident attorney can take a look at the details of your case and accident to see if you have a viable claim against the manufacturer.
