In a news statement, the Morgan Olson Corporation, in accordance with the guidelines and standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), announced the recall of certain walk-in van type vehicles, manufactured from September 1, 2009, to February 2, 2012, with sliding front side doors. These vehicles have door latch systems that fail to meet the strength requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Vehicle latches that fail to comply with these requirements increase the risk of partial or full occupant ejection, especially in the event of an accident. The potential amount of vehicles affected by this recall is 8,316. Owners will be notified and the vehicles will be repaired, by way of a new latch being installed, free of cost.
As a York car accident attorney, I’ve seen this sort of vehicle safety recall several times before and fully appreciate the injuries that occupants of these vehicles can suffer should the defective part fail during a crash. I know that vehicle manufacturers do a lot to ensure the safety of their vehicles for their customers, however, occasionally mistakes can be made. If you’ve been injured in an accident that you think was the result of a defective auto part, it may be in your best interests to speak with a car accident lawyer experienced in these matters to learn more about your rights as a consumer.Tweet
