TOP NEW YORK MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT LAWYERS
It’s not just bad drivers who can cause auto, truck or motorcycle accidents. Every year, thousands of motor vehicles with critical defects are introduced into the nation’s roadways because manufacturers failed to recognize a problem or design defect, or worse yet, chose to save money and not redesign the vehicle even if they were aware of a potentially deadly problem with the vehicle.
Defects in older vehicles are constantly being identified and related back to numerous accidents and malfunctions. It was recently discovered that for more than 10 years General Motors knowingly sold cars with a faulty ignition switch and kept the danger hidden from regulators and from the public.
“If you have been in a motor vehicle accident,” Jay W. Dankner, partner in the New York products liability law firm of Dankner Milstein, P.C. said, “and you’re not sure if your injuries might have been caused by a vehicle defect, you can quickly look up all recent vehicle recalls and defect notices online and see for yourself.
“Just visit the website of The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,” he added, “at www.nhsta.gov/. This very informative website lists all active auto, truck and motorcycle defects and recalls.”
