Defect in trucks prompts recall of 250,00o vehicles

There are multiple reasons why a motor vehicle accident might occur. While the first thing that may come to mind when someone hears that a crash has occurred is negligence on the part of a driver, there are other factors that could be to blame, or be a factor. One of those factors is defects with the vehicles involved. When a vehicle does not work the way it is supposed to it is possible that the driver could lose control and be in an accident. Other times, while a defect in a vehicle might not be to blame for the accident itself, it could be what causes those involved to suffer injuries.

The fear of this happening recently prompted a truck recall in Canada.

Close to 250,000 vehicles were recalled by Fiat Chrysler. Included in those vehicles are model years 2012 through 2014, of Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks and 3500, 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cabs.

The reason for the recall is so that issues with steering and driver-side airbag deployment can be addressed. An airbag could deploy when the steering wheel harness becomes worn. Though there are at least two accidents that occurred because of the problem, thus far no one has been injured.

When someone is injured in a car accident that negligence on the part of another contributed to, legal action may be appropriate. These cases are often complex. As a result, most people contact a personal injury lawyer to help fully assert their rights.
