Car defect could lead to higher risk for a car accident

Pennsylvania readers will note that Ford has initiated a recall that affects the 2009 and 2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX. These vehicles have problems with fuel leaks, which could place drivers at a higher risk for a car accident or other issues. This recall affects vehicles that are driven in areas where salt is frequently used to clear the roads of snow and ice. 

The salt from the roads can cause rust on the fuel tanks. Eventually, this can cause the tanks to crack, which could eventually lead to a fire. Ford has stated that it does not believe any accidents or injuries have resulted from this issue but is offering to fix the issue for free. Pennsylvania drivers will note that this recall affects 129,000 vehicles. 

Car manufacturers have a responsibility to produce vehicles that are safe for all consumers, no matter their geographical location. If a car is unsafe to drive in certain weather conditions, innocent motorists and passengers could be at risk for injuries, expensive car repairs or worse. After an accident, it may be important to consider the possibility that a defective car part may have played a role in the incident. 

Those in Pennsylvania who suffer serious injury because of the actions or negligence of another party may take legal action. A car accident can leave a person with many expenses, but it is often possible to obtain a full recovery through a successfully presented civil claim. A complete case evaluation can determine if a car manufacturer or other parties may be liable for damages.
