Hyundai Tucson Recalled For Engine Compartment Fire Danger

People take risks every time they start up their cars, even if they don't realize it. Certain things can go wrong under the hood and turn into something dangerous in a matter of seconds. For instance, if a gas line begins spraying the engine block, flames might ignite, and the driver will have an engine compartment fire on their hands. Another possibility is that a bare wire may short out against the frame, but hopefully it only blows a fuse. However, if the conditions are just right, flames could erupt as well.

Hence, it is good practice for vehicle owners to keep fire extinguishers nearby. With that safety measure and a little luck, they can stop the flames in their tracks. Of course, sometimes, it is best to call 911 and let firefighters handle the situation. After all, they have the appropriate gear and equipment to tackle such endeavors safely.

The point is that engine compartment fires happen more often than most folks believe. Therefore, it can pay off for people to be prepared for when they do. Drivers must attempt to get themselves and passengers out of the vehicle.

Plus, they need to reach a safe distance as there is always the chance of explosions. If people are unable to escape burning vehicles before fires get to the cab, they can sustain severe injuries. Unfortunately, death is another possible outcome of such events.

Defective Parts Can Cause Engine Compartment Fires

Cars get recalled for all sorts of things these days, and some of them are more dangerous than others. Owners of 2019-2021 Hyundai Tucson vehicles should pay close attention to this section. These autos come equipped with Anti-Lock Brake Hydraulic Electronic Control Units, which may corrode internally. The corrosion can cause electrical shorts and engine compartment fires.

There are approximately 180,000 Tucson vehicles involved in recall number 195. That is quite a substantial number, and a lot of them could be right here in the Sunshine State. Owners are being urged to park the cars outside and away from structures until they have been repaired. For more information regarding this situation, don't hesitate to contact Hyundai's customer support team.

Reasons To Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer After Incidents Like These

The law holds manufacturers and sellers responsible for damages that their goods cause. Things get a bit tricky when it comes to recalls, though. An injured party must have sustained injuries before the recall came to fruition in order to file a lawsuit. All is not lost after recalls happen, but people must prove that they did not have any prior knowledge of the recall. It all sounds pretty confusing, doesn't it?

Don't fret if the information above threw you for a loop as you are likely not the only one. Luckily, Florida citizens don't have to face those matters alone. Instead, they can contact our firm to schedule a free case evaluation today. Doing so will allow them to see where their claim stands, and without having to spend a dime. We can help steer you in the right direction and figure out what steps to take next.

Manufacturers like to look out for themselves and their bottom lines. As such, they don't just cut checks for people claiming to be injured by their products. Rather, those organizations typically have legal teams on retainer. They go the extra distance to prevent their clients from paying out any compensation at all.

On other occasions, the professionals offer victims low settlements to make issues disappear. Don't let a manufacturer's legal team take advantage of you, especially when their product caused the damages. Put trustworthy, friendly, and reputable representation in your corner and take the fight to them.

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.
