You may hear of a high number of accidents that involve a certain make or model of automobile. If you have that make or model of automobile, it is understandable for you to become apprehensive about driving your car. When there is a widespread problem with a particular automobile, though, the manufacturer usually issues a recall. It is important for the safety and wellbeing of you, your passengers, and fellow motorists that you keep up with recalls.
Unfortunately, some automotive problems either are not widespread or have not gained the attention of the manufacturer yet, and you may be involved in an accident in which you are injured. If that is the case, contact the Milwaukee car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874.
How Recalls Work
When your make or model of car is found to have a safety defect, your auto manufacturer will issue a safety recall. While the manufacturer will try to contact the owners of the affected vehicles through mail and telephone, some owners may not receive notification. Fortunately, recalls are easily found on the Internet and, many times, in the news.
When you receive a recall notice, the auto manufacturer will usually fix the defect free of charge. You will usually have to take your car the closest dealer of your car’s make. Most of the time, your local dealer will be able to handle your case. Should special circumstances arise, contact the manufacturer of your automobile.
While recalls can help keep you safe, they are not always issued in time to prevent you from being injured as a result of the defect. If you or your loved one has been injured in a car accident that was caused by an auto defect, the Milwaukee auto defect attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® may be able to help you.
