2020 Is Here, And 2019 Recalls Are Still A Problem

Florida’s streets, roads, and highways can be pretty dangerous. Research from the state’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles indicates that there were 686,590 drivers involved in 402,385 crashes in 2017. Those are some staggering figures. Hence, it is easy to see why getting on the Sunshine State’s roadways seem risky at times. Auto collisions often lead to injuries such as…

• Broken Bones, Fractures, Contusions
• Severe Lacerations And Puncture Wounds
• Internal Bleeding/Organ Damage
• Partial Or Full Paralysis
• Traumatic Brain Injury

As if those things weren’t enough, there is still something else that can come from an auto accident. Vehicle occupants can lose their lives in the events. Then, family members are left grieving for one or more loved ones that were taken before their time. In either case, injuries or death, there are usually expenses too. For one, a person with wounds must pay for hospital bills, medications, surgeries, and more. Meanwhile, families have medical and funeral expenses to deal with, when the only thing they should be worried about is mourning.

Anybody that has been to the doctor recently knows that it is expensive to receive any kind of treatment. However, it is not every day that a person plans a funeral. Therefore, we are going to share some stats to ensure that everybody understands the significance of the issue. Let’s put it this way; family members can’t simply find the funds under couch cushions.

Keep in mind that prices will vary from state to state and organization to organization. The Cremation Institute reports that a basic cremation in the U.S. runs between $800 and $3,000. As for a viewing, funeral, and burial, the National Funeral Directors Association, or NFDA for short, states that in 2017 the average cost for such services was $7,360. Thus, it is no wonder that folks run into financial hardships after a loved one’s passing.

You May Be Entitled To Compensation

If it can be proven that another driver’s negligence caused the accident and injuries, you, or your family, may be able to recover compensation. Heck, even if a manufacturer is to blame, the same can be said. It is never a good idea to go up against a large corporation alone, though. They usually have legal teams on retainer, chomping at the bit, to discredit any and all claims. If the vehicle in question was recalled, the victim must prove that they did not have any prior knowledge of the recall or that their injuries were sustained before the notice was issued.

Our accident attorneys have successfully represented many clients from southwest Florida, and they will gladly do the same for you. The lawyers have recovered over $500 million in verdicts and settlements. Plus, combined, they have more than 150 years of experience. So, don’t delay any longer. Instead, pick up the phone and schedule your free case review today.

A Recall From Subaru Of America

Subaru began recall number WUL-97 back on October 1, 2019. There were approximately 3,467 2020 Outback models included in the notification. Apparently, there might be a loose or missing bolt on the brake pedal mounting bracket. As such, the mounting area may deform over time. When that happens, braking performance will become decreased, which increases the risk of a crash. The last thing anybody wants is for their vehicle to fail to slow down or stop when they push the brakes.

If you got injured in a wreck in a 2020 Subaru Outback, before the recall was issued, or had no idea a recall had been released, don’t hesitate to give one of our offices a call. One of our representatives will be more than happy to discuss your legal options with you. Then, if everything checks out, you will gain top-notch representation in your corner.
