Prioritize Vehicle Safety
March 1, 2024

March marks Vehicle Safety Recalls Week, a critical time to ensure that your vehicle is free from safety defects that could lead to accidents or injuries. At Averill & Reaney, we understand the importance of vehicle safety and are committed to helping those affected by accidents caused by recalls.

Vehicle recalls are issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) when safety defects are identified in vehicles. These defects pose risks to drivers, passengers, and others on the road. Fortunately, NHTSA directs car manufacturer dealerships to fix these defects at no cost to vehicle owners. However, vehicle owners need to take proactive steps to check for recalls and address any identified issues promptly.

Checking your vehicle for recalls is simple and can be done online using resources provided by NHTSA and other organizations:

  • Visit and enter your license plate number or Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to check for recalls.
  • Sign up for NHTSA Recall Alerts by email to receive notifications about future recalls affecting your vehicle.
  • Utilize the Check to Protect program by the National Safety Council, where you can look up your vehicle's status using a license plate number or VIN on their website,

At Averill & Reaney, we are dedicated to assisting individuals who have been involved in accidents caused by vehicle defects or recalls. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a defective vehicle, our experienced legal team is here to provide guidance and advocacy. Don't hesitate to reach out to us for a consultation, and let us help you pursue the justice and compensation you deserve.

Prioritize your safety on the road, take proactive steps to check for recalls, and address any safety issues promptly to ensure a safer driving experience for yourself and others on the road.
