Be Wary Of Taking These Trailers On Trips This Summer

Lots of folks remain shuttered inside their homes because of the novel coronavirus. However, many people are glad that summertime has finally arrived, and they are starting to plan trips. In many cases, their ventures will take place in the great outdoors. Family and friends get together to go camping at lakes, national forests, and state parks. Not to mention, July 4th is right around the corner too. That means tons of people will want to take in some fresh air on that occasion as well.

Regardless of where a person is going or what they are doing, if it involves a Springdale trailer from Keystone RV, they should pay close attention to this post. Sure, the units can provide them with all the luxuries of home while they are out in the woods exploring. However, if the owners of the trailers aren’t careful, they could have an accident on the way to their destination. In addition, something could go wrong all of a sudden, leaving them stranded at their respective campsites.

Stay Safe By Knowing About This Consumer Alert

Keystone RV is expected to begin recalling forty-one 2020 Springdale trailers on July 27. The camper vans in question have the model number 335BHWE. During the manufacturing process, the trailers received 4,400-pound axles. They were also fitted with ST255/75R15D tires and rims. However, the federal identification tag reveals that the units were supposed to get 5,200-pound axles with ST255/75R15E tires and rims.

The trailers can become overloaded because of the issues, increasing the risk to drivers towing them of getting into a crash. Keystone RV is supposed to replace the axles, rims, and tires to remedy the problem. Floridians need to be aware of this situation to avoid catastrophes.

Injuries And Passenger Vehicle Accidents

The last thing anybody wants is to get into an accident when they are heading out to a remote location in the woods. Yet, that kind of incident happens from time to time. Unfortunately, the trips most likely have to be postponed as skin and bones are no match for metal. When auto accidents—or in this case, trailer accidents—occur, vehicle occupants can be left with severe and lasting injuries. These often include the following:

  • Whiplash
  • Broken Bones
  • Internal Organ Damage
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Paralysis

Products are supposed to be safe for consumers to use once they hit the open market. It is not uncommon for items with defects to slip through the cracks every once in a while, though. If individuals sustain injuries from recalled autos or trailers, they may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligent manufacturer and recover compensation for lost wages, current and future medical expenses, property damage, and pain and suffering.

Injured Parties Don’t Have To Face These Situations Alone

Going up against a manufacturing company is no easy task. The organizations usually have lawyers standing by, just waiting for their chance to discredit claims. The legal teams twist the truth to make it look like victims are to blame. They offer low-ball settlements that don’t cover much of anything and are simply not fair.

Luckily, Floridians do not have to face these legal battles on their own. Instead, they can contact our firm and put top-notch representation in their corner. The initial case evaluation is free, and personal injury claims are paid on a contingency fee basis. In other words, there are no upfront costs, and our clients only pay if compensation is recovered. So please do not delay any longer. Give our team a call and discover what lies in store for you.
