A Consumer Alert About Jeep Cherokee Vehicles

Jeep has used the name Cherokee since 1974. Between 1973 and 1983, the models were full-size SUVs. In 1984, the cars were reimagined and turned into mid-size SUVs, which lasted until 2012. Then, in 2013, the Cherokee was transformed into a compact crossover SUV, and that is where it is at today.

Plenty of people invest in that vehicle because of its four-wheel-drive capabilities. They enjoy going mudding in them, slipping and sloshing about, without the fear of getting stuck. Of course, not all consumers choose the vehicle for that reason. Some do so simply because it is dependable. Nobody wants to purchase a car only for it to break down and leave them stranded on the side of the road.

A lot of folks also opt for those vehicles because of their safety ratings. They like knowing that their families might escape with only minor bumps and bruises if a crash occurs. The word “might” is used in the previous statement as it is anybody's guess as to what the future holds when auto accidents arise.

Even with today's modern safety features, drivers and passengers can still get hurt in a collision. Broken bones, fractures, brain injuries, and more can come to fruition. Such an event can also cost people their lives. When driver negligence, such as speeding or drinking and driving, comes into play, victims can employ the services of personal injury lawyers. Those professionals can build strong cases to recover the compensation their clients deserve.

All About Negligent Manufacturers


Sometimes, accidents happen where negligent drivers or vehicle owners are not to blame. Rather, manufacturer negligence leads to wrecks. Trying to get money from them can prove to be quite a feat. They usually have legal teams standing by to discredit injury claims when they occur. The attorneys do whatever it takes to prevent their clients from owing restitution. Floridians should not let those individuals take advantage of them in their time of need.

Instead, they can contact our firm to schedule a free case review. Victims may even be entitled to compensation if their vehicles have been recalled. The personal injury lawyer must prove that their client did not have prior knowledge of the recall or the injuries occurred before the recall was issued. Whatever the case may be, we have you covered. So if your accident and injuries were no fault of your own, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

We will now take a look at a consumer alert. Hence, Jeep Cherokee owners should pay close attention, stick around, and read on to learn more.

This Problem Increases Crash Risks


On October 30, 2020, Chrysler issued recall number W81 on 2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude and Jeep Cherokee Limited vehicles. There are potentially 698 units affected. These SUVs' lower front control arms may fracture or break during operation, which can spell big trouble for drivers. It will hinder their ability to steer and possibly even cause them to lose control.

They could hit concrete barriers, other cars, pedestrians, and more if the issue comes up while they are driving. A person's vehicle might even flip, causing a one-car rollover accident. Severe and lasting injuries can be sustained by those involved in such incidents. Chrysler is advising owners to stop driving these vehicles and have them inspected. If repairs are needed, dealerships will complete them for free.

Readers should check out the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website for more information regarding this problem.

The NHTSA's campaign number for this recall is 20V657000. Just know that if an issue such as this one leaves you injured, top-notch legal representation is only a phone call away.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
