Maserati, a luxury car manufacturer from Italy, issued a recall to its North American division. Maserati is known for designing luxury cars with the sport-car bent in function, design, and output. Maserati issued the recall after it discovered two separate defects that could result in fires. This post will go over the recall and how it may affect you.
Auto manufacturer recalls fairly common. Cars are in constant use and undergo millions of tests every month. There is an endless possibility of factors that no company, no matter how committed to safety, can anticipate. That is why the recall system was devised, to allow manufacturers to identify and respond to defects quickly.
Maserati issued the recall after it discovered two defects that could cause fires. The recall affects three lines: the Quattroporte, the Levante, and the Ghibli. Maserati discovered that adjusting the front seat in these models caused the seat wiring to rub against metal points. Eventually, that could lead to a suit malfunction. Additionally, in rare circumstances, it could short out the vehicles' electrical systems and cause a fire.
Were you injured due to a negligent manufacturer selling a defective product? If you were, then you may want to contact an attorney to review your options for compensation. Products liability suits are more straightforward than before, but they are still complex. Depending on the resolve of the manufacturer, they may force you to try and prove which part of their manufacturing process was defective. Additionally, some companies are protected from their admissions if it is connected with a valid recall. A lawyer can help you navigate these issues to ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries.
