Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyers Note Upsurge of Recalls

Sacramento Wrongful Death lawyer

SACRAMENTO – Personal injury attorneys are paying close attention news about recalls of GM cars as an increasing number of defects are identified. Although focus has been on deaths and injuries due to faulty airbags in some GM models, Sacramento car accident lawyers at Sette Law point out that other auto firms have also launched recalls. In July, the upscale Range Rover maker revealed defects in airbags in the 2012-2013 model, forcing a recall. Our Sacramento car accident lawyers are also tracking the July recall of Volkswagen Routan models with ignition switch problems that affect power steering, airbags and brakes.

Although car manufacturers publish data on injuries and deaths due to such failures, safety advocates suspect the numbers may be substantially higher than reported. Our Sacramento personal injury attorneys encounter cases in which people harmed in auto accidents are unaware their vehicles were subject to a recall. Consequently, a mechanical or electrical failure may never be identified as a factor in an accident in Sacramento. A car accident lawyer stays abreast of news about pending recalls and automobile defects. There is, of course, no reason a driver or passenger should shoulder the financial burden of defect-caused crash in Sacramento. A personal injury attorney with Sette Law can expertly navigate the complicated legal system to protects victims of such accidents and help them recover financial losses. As personal injury specialists we are in a unique position to represent car accident victims in Sacramento. Your car accident lawyer brings legal expertise as well as personal advocacy to Sacramento car accident cases.

Lawyers Look to Past Accidents
At Sette Law our Sacramento personal injury attorneys believe car makers need to step-up their vigilance and reporting of potential defects. That GM’s issues with faulty ignition switches began more than 10 years ago (at least to 2003) and only received serious public attention in 2013-2014, shows a serious lack of accountability. To date, 303 accidents have been attributed to GM’s reticence to disclose failures when first identified. When representing Sette clients in Sacramento, their car accident lawyer knows that there are many car crashes yet to be linked to defects in auto design.

And, although our Sacramento injury lawyers fight for financial justice for victims, we also know the personal toll of defect-related deaths is incalculable. Imagine the emotional toll on the family of the pregnant 26-year-old woman who, in 2006, was driving a Chevy Cobalt. The lawsuit alleges the brakes failed at an intersection causing the small car to crash into a tractor-trailer rig. The airbags did not deploy and the young woman and unborn child were killed.

Sacramento Car Accident Lawyers Question the Numbers
Also disturbing to Sette professionals is what is still unknown to drivers in the U.S. and Sacramento. Personal injury attorneys and investigative reporters cannot be confident about the data provided by the auto industry. Reuters News Service looked deeper into GM’s claims of 16 deaths and 61 collisions due to the faulty switch. The Reuters study found that 74 people had died in analogous accidents in GM cars. Our Sacramento car accident lawyers are monitoring the developments of such disparities. We also look closely at the circumstances of any serious automobile accident in Sacramento. Personal injury attorneys at Sette continue to follow the course of the GM saga and other car companies whose manufacturing defects cause harm and even death.
