Older Ford cars recalled due to auto defects

Vehicle purchasers in West Virginia naturally anticipate that the manufacturers will produce safe vehicles for consumers to use. Sometimes, vehicles do not function properly due to serious auto defects, which can cause an injury or even a fatality. One recent auto recall that may impact some people in the state involves Ford cars.

Ford has decided to recall more than 300,000 older big cars in North America. This is because the cars' headlights have the potential to go dark, and this can cause a crash. The vehicle recall covers certain Mercury Grand Marquis cars and Ford Crown Victoria cars from the model years of 2003 to 2005.

According to Ford, a recalled vehicle's lighting control module has solder joints that may crack. This can end up cutting off power to the vehicle's headlights. Ford said it received word of a total of 11 collisions as well as one minor injury in connection with this auto issue. Dealers can replace the vehicles' lighting control modules for free.

Consumers in West Virginia who are injured due to using vehicles with auto defects have the right to file liability claims against the vehicle manufacturers. In the same way, the surviving families of those who have lost their lives due to defective vehicles have the right to file wrongful death claims against the manufacturers, pursuing the reimbursement of monetary damages incurred. Appropriate proof of negligence and/or breach of warranty is required to establish liability in a manner acceptable to the court; once that is accomplished, monetary damage claims be adjudicated by the court.
