Springfield Motor Vehicle Recall Attorney
Recalls on defective motor vehicles and equipment are a large concern, and the cause of many catastrophic injuries every year. In 1966, the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act gave the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) authority to issue vehicle safety standards and require manufacturers to recall vehicles and safety equipment with defects or products that do not meet federal safety standards.
Since 1966, according to the NHTSA, more than 390 million cars, trucks, buses, recreational vehicles, motorcycles and mopeds have been recalled, and more than 46 million tires, 66 million pieces of motor vehicle equipment and 42 million child safety seats have been recalled to correct safety defects.
