It's a literal nightmare come to life: you're driving at a high speed down a busy road or highway when you lose the ability to steer your car. For all too many auto consumers and their families, loss of steering during driving is an all-too-real situation, and automotive defects related to issues with steering have caused hundreds of injuries and deaths. If your automobile is exhibiting signs of steering issues, it is important for you to take action before your automotive defect means injury or death for you or someone else.
At Herrington Law in Jackson, Mississippi, our attorneys have decades of experiencing in championing the cause of auto consumers in Mississippi and nationwide, and we have taken on the nation's largest automakers in pursuit of justice on behalf of our clients. If you have a steering issue that you believe is the result of an automotive defect, our legal team can work with you to assess whether you have a potential lemon law claim or class action claim and fight for the financial recovery you deserve.
Get Help With Steering Issues Before It's Too Late
Even with advances in automotive engineering, many thousands of cars have been recalled in recent years for dangerous issues related to steering, including:
- Loss of power steering on Ford automobiles while driving leading to at least 124 reports of injury and death
- The recall of 1.2 million Chrysler Dodge Ram trucks for defective steering rods in connection with the so-called “death wobble”
- Power steering defects in 1.3 million cars manufactured by General Motors for its Chevrolet, Saturn, and Pontiac brands
By working with our team, we can assess your steering issues and determine whether you are eligible to pursue a Mississippi lemon law claim against the manufacturer (assuming you have had the car less than one year, the car is under warranty, and you have made a reasonable number of attempts to have the manufacturer service the car) for the full purchase price, or whether you can join an automotive defect class action to maximize your leverage against the manufacturer.
