Potential Brake Defect Prompts Toyota Tacoma Recall

Each day there seems to be a new consumer alert that people must grow familiar with. Today is no different. Therefore, our office is sharing this information with you hoping that it will keep you and your family safe. Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing is expected to issue a recall for 44,121 vehicles on January 21, 2019. The autos involved are 2018-2019 Toyota Tacomas. During the production process, improper machining may have occurred to the ADVICS brake master cylinders.

In turn, internal seals might have become damaged. If so, the braking performance of the vehicle will be affected. Thus, the operator’s risk of crash increases. The organization is supposed to notify owners directly, but concerned individuals can contact the Toyota customer service department as well. The number is 1-888-270-9371. Be sure to mention the recall number of J16/J06 to get the most up-to-date and accurate data. However, if you receive injuries caused by the defective part, don’t hesitate to contact our attorneys.

Vehicle Defects Contribute To Auto Accidents

People have plenty of choices when it comes to vehicles in the United States. They can buy foreign or domestic models, luxury cars, SUVs, and trucks. Whatever selection they make, one thing is for sure, they expect the mode of transportation to get them from point A to point B safely. After all, nobody wants to become involved in a wreck. However, from time to time, accidents happen.

Perhaps a driver isn’t paying enough attention, or maybe the operator is just going a little too fast. He or she can swerve to avoid something in the roadway, fail to apply the brakes when the traffic in front of them stops, or veer into another lane and hit another vehicle, a pedestrian, or something else like a guardrail. As you can see, anything is possible while behind the wheel, and a collision can change people’s lives in the blink of an eye. Common injuries after car crashes include but are not limited to…

• Burns, Lacerations, Contusions
• Broken And Fractured Bones
• Organ Damage And Internal Bleeding
• Partial Or Full Paralysis
• Traumatic Brain Injuries

The physical ailments can leave an individual in the hospital for days, weeks, and sometimes even months. There is also the mental aspect to consider. Some folks may need counseling after a car crash because of anxiety. It might take years of therapy for them to be able to drive again, that is providing that they can overcome the fear. The price tags for these services can add up in a hurry, especially if the person is having to miss work.

Luckily, there is a solution. If an individual is injured in a crash, they may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. However, proving fault in such cases is easier said than done. The insurance company, as well as the defendant’s attorney, will pull out all the stops to avoid paying out a fair settlement. Hence, it is a good idea to hire a reputable and proven firm.

Our lawyers will fight with your best interests in mind. The team will obtain witness testimonies, collect evidence, and have the accident scene recreated as necessary to build the strongest case possible. Plus, the case review is free and you only pay if compensation is recovered. So, don’t delay any longer as legal help is a mere phone call away.

The Firm Can Assist With Automotive Recalls Too

When car companies and manufacturers are involved in the process, proving fault becomes even more difficult. They often have legal teams on retainer waiting for such dilemmas to arise. These individuals will even go as far as shift blame to the victim. However, the vehicles, as well as the parts used to create them, are supposed to be safe when they hit the open market. So, don’t let these big corporations take advantage of you. Instead, contact us to see where your claim stands.
