This Fire Hazard Poses A Risk To Your Well-Being
The fuel gauge retainer may collapse, causing fuel to leak, which poses a fire hazard. Burns, of different degrees, as well as other personal injuries, can occur, leaving you with expensive medical costs, time away from work, and the inability to pay necessities. If you sustain an injury from a defective part, product, or the negligent act of a manufacturer, feel free to contact our office for a free case review, to see if you are owed just compensation.
Kawasaki will contact all known owners, and repairs will be performed free of charge. However, this does not account for vehicles that have been sold to another proprietor. We must do our part, to spread the message, to keep our friends, families, and neighbors safe. Your health, well-being, and safety should always be the top priorities.
Things To Do
Discontinue using your off-road toy, immediately, to prevent injuries and stay safe. It will be tempting to play, especially if it rains, but you must remain disciplined. The company's customer service department should be contacted, referencing the recall number of 17-75 to get the most up-to-date information, and to find out how to proceed with the process.
It is of the utmost importance to check your model, and identification numbers, if you believe that your unit may be affected. The few, mere minutes that it takes you to check them, is better than the alternatives, which could be painful and life-altering consequences. Attempting to prove fault in these cases, is often easier said than done. We have the experience, a vast understanding of the law, and the ability to help you through this complicated process, from the beginning to the end.
