When you go and buy a pre-owned, or a used, vehicle, the primary responsibility for that salesman is to sell you a car. And you know? What has gone on behind the scenes, that matters a bunch, because I will tell you this. Sometimes there are problem vehicles out there. This particular vehicle had a checkered safety history because the dealership that was servicing it kept having problems with the airbag light coming on. They could not repair it, so what did they do? They removed the airbag fuse that controls all of the airbags. They then disconnected the front airbag sensor, and they said they did a repair that they charged almost $1,000 for, but they didn’t do it. This is a problem not just with this dealership, but it happens nationwide, because there are millions of vehicles that are plagued with safety issues. So what happens? People get rid of them, they pass them on down the stream, and then the dealerships, so they can sell the vehicle for profit, they disable the airbags. It’s against the law in every state, it’s against federal law, and if you want to learn more, go to the link that we’ve set up at my website.

If you, a family member, or friend have suffered a traumatic car accident injury or they were killed in an auto accident, there may be grounds for a product liability lawsuit against the car maker. The victim’s or family members of the deceased person may be entitled to significantly more money in damages than just a negligence case about the cause of the accident.

The Tracy Law Firm focuses on “Who Caused The Traumatic Car Accident Injuries or Death” — not who caused the accident.

Whether you were at fault or not in the cause of the accident, car companies are required by federal motor vehicle safety standards to make vehicles that will protect the driver and passengers from catastrophic injuries or death.
