Vehicle Recalls

Millions of Americans rely on their cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles every day. Drivers and passengers depend on their vehicles to give them safe passage to their schools, their jobs and their homes. Some vehicles on the road carry serious defects before they leave the factory. These defects can cause accidents that can lead to serious injuries or deaths. When manufacturers discover these defects, they issue vehicle recalls. People who have been injured in accidents due to defective vehicles may also be eligible to file vehicle recall lawsuits.
