This defect in some vehicles often causes severe injuries for the driver, any passengers in the vehicle and anyone in the near vicinity.GM’s recalls are said to be caused by a problem with the power steering in some of their vehicles.I have had the power steering go out on my old vehicle one time many years ago and it was extremely frightening because I was trying to get off the road but I could hardly move the steering wheel and almost hit a car and a gas station sign because of it.
With the recent developments of the Toyota and GM vehicle recalls, I thought it would be a good idea to address these issues and how our law firm can help.
Toyota’s recalls are because of a “sudden acceleration” problem with the vehicle.
The “sudden acceleration” syndrome is explained by vehicle owners as “the car taking on a life of its own”.
In other words, the vehicle will suddenly accelerate extremely fast without the driver pushing the pedal and in almost all instances of this traumatic experience, the vehicle won’t stop accelerating until it has collided with something that would stop it, such as a building for example.
Minor mistakes made by doctors are too expensive to litigate to get the client any decent settlement for their time.
Not only does the mistake need to be something a reasonably prudent doctor in his/her situation would not have done, but there needs to be a serious/catastrophic injury.
However, if there is a major mistake that has resulted in a serious injury to you or a loved one, call Salvi & Maher.
If you were injured in an accident because of a defect in your vehicle or the vehicle of someone who hit you, SALVI & MAHER can help you.
We are one of the only law firms in the Chicagoland area that have been successful in cases against auto makers for defects in their vehicles.
In fact, we settled and were successful in a “sudden acceleration” case in 2009. In order for there to be a medical malpractice case, there needs to be a major mistake usually resulting in a catastrophic injury.
