A Consumer Alert For Dodge Ram Owners In Florida
Do you own and drive a Dodge Ram Heavy-Duty pickup in Florida? Under normal circumstances, we'd say good for you because these are powerful and dependable trucks. However, did you know that a little something is going on with them? It's true, and the issue could put you, your passengers, and others on the roadways in danger.
According to Car and Driver, almost 6,000 Dodge Ram HD pickups are being recalled in the United States. Why? Because these vehicles have steering linkage parts that might separate over time. If that happens, it would certainly be a rude awakening for the driver because he or she could lose steering control and crash. The models involved in this recall are as follows.
• 2013-2017 Ram 3500 Pickups
• 2014-2017 Ram 2500 Trucks
• 2014-2017 3500 Chasis-Cab Vehicles
Therefore, if you own one of these trucks, we recommend that you get the problem addressed sooner rather than later. Failing to do so could open up a whole can of worms involving you in an accident, although you did nothing wrong. Typically, nothing good comes from car crashes. Some participants die in the events, while others sustain severe wounds, like spinal injuries or loss of limbs.
Why You Should Hire An Attorney
Manufacturers are held liable for the harm their products cause. That means if you lost a spouse, child, or another family member because of a defective product, you might be entitled to fair compensation. No amount of money is ever enough when a wrongful death occurs, but still, seeking compensation can be worthwhile. Winning restitution can offset medical bills for services rendered, funeral costs, and other final expenses.
Those that become severely injured by defective products can fight for compensation too. The money can make up for lost wages, current and future medical bills, and much more. However, before jumping the gun and filing a lawsuit immediately, there are a couple of things you should know.
If a vehicle has been recalled, like the one mentioned earlier, you must be able to prove that you did not have prior knowledge of the recall. Meanwhile, the second item is this; you might have a strong case if your injuries occurred before the recall was issued.
