550,000 Hyundai & Kia Vehicles May Have Dangerous Opposite Turn Signal Defect

Today’s consumers have what feels like a million different cars to choose from. Some of the top options include Ford, Chevrolet, and Chrysler. Then again, Toyota, Honda, and Mitsubishi are near the top too. That’s not even close to being all, though. But, we still haven’t mentioned the brands we are here to discuss, Hyundai and Kia.

Many people are fans of these vehicles, and they stand behind them through thick and thin. They like them because they have upscale and luxurious appearances. That’s not all, though. Lots of folks like these rides because of past experiences. For example, perhaps they owned certain models before that rarely or never broke down. The point is that there are plenty of Hyundai and Kia owners all over the place and even right here in Bradenton. 

There’s certainly nothing wrong with that.

However, we have discovered that particular Hyundai and Kia vehicles may have problems that put people in danger. Hence, we’re going to discuss the issue right here. Then, if you operate one of the machines in Bradenton, hopefully, you’ll be able to avoid getting seriously hurt by it.

A Turn Signal Dilemma

According to ABC NEWS, approximately 550,000 Hyundai and Kia vehicles are on the roadways with turn signals that flash in the opposite direction of what the driver indicates. Can you even imagine? You push the blinker lever to show you’re making a right turn when in reality, it reveals that you’re going left.

Then, once you make your move, the car behind you slams into your car’s rear or side. Nothing good would come of that more than likely. 

Your vehicle would probably sustain damage. Plus, you and your passengers could get severely injured. Car collisions tend to produce horrific injuries. They often include but are not limited to:

• Brain damage
• Fractures and broken bones
• Slices, gashes, rips, punctures, and tears
• Partial or full paralysis

Should You Hire An Attorney?

More often than not, when a motorist hits a car from behind, they are held at fault for the accident. That means if a wreck like this occurs, their insurance should take care of any property damages and bodily injuries on your end.

However, what if the amount you receive isn’t enough? Well, if something else is to blame, like manufacturer negligence, you might be entitled to compensation from the company that made your vehicle.

That doesn’t mean the said organization is just going to hand over a load of cash, though. Instead, these businesses usually have legal teams standing by to discredit such claims. They stop at nothing to prevent their clients from paying up.

That’s why you need a top-notch Bradenton personal injury attorney in your corner. 

You’ll need to prove that manufacturer negligence occurred, and that is where the professional comes into play. First, the lawyer and his/her team will build a case using the evidence they collect. Then, they will prepare the claim for trial.

However, it is notable to mention that these cases often don’t make it that far. Manufacturers/sellers/insurance companies would rather settle out of court than let an attorney from our firm get in front of a judge and jury with an injured client.

The bottom line is this: manufacturers and sellers are responsible for any harm their products cause. Hence, if an issue like the one mentioned here leaves you seriously hurt, don’t take the matter lying down.
