Automotive Defect Attorneys in Charlotte
Fighting to Hold Negligent Automotive Manufacturers Accountable
Serious injury or death can result from a vehicle with defective components. While today’s cars are still the safest in history, the U.S. Transportation Department reported a total of 53.2 million vehicles were recalled in the United States in 2016.
Even if a vehicle is recalled, defective automobiles and auto parts should never make it onto the consumer market. At Charles G. Monnett III & Associates, we represent victims of car accidents and other types of motor vehicle collisions when such collisions are caused by defective auto/auto parts design or manufacturing. Our Charlotte automotive defect attorneys can help you seek fair compensation for your injuries and other damages.
Recalls & Safety-Related Auto Defects
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) enforces the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and may order recalls of vehicles that do not meet federal safety standards or that have safety-related defects. Safety-related defects are those that pose an unreasonable risk of harm in the operation of the motor vehicle.
These defects may relate to:
- Steering or ignition systems
- Seats and seatbelts
- Fuel systems
- Electrical components
What to Do If You Suspect a Safety-Related Issue
If you suspect there is a safety-related issue with your vehicle, make a complaint on NHTSA’s website SaferCar.gov. Before you buy a used car, look up the VIN online at SaferCar.gov to see if the vehicle has been recalled for any reason and, if so, whether it has been repaired.
