A New App for Smartphones that Alert Drivers of Vehicle Recalls.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is set to offer a free app for smartphones that can alert drivers if their vehicle is involved in a recall.
The redesigned smartphone app, SaferCar, will notify users when their vehicle is under recall. The free app, available on Android and iOS devices, was made available on August 27th.
The app allows users to register one or more cars and any related equipment in a virtual garage. Car seats and trailers are just a few of the items you can add.
It will then check those items for recalls from that point forward. If your car or equipment goes under recall, the app will notify you.
A recall is issued when a manufacturer or the NHTSA determines that a vehicle, equipment, car seat or tire creates a safety risk or has failed to meet minimum safety standards.
Knowing if your car or equipment has been recalled is crucial to keeping you and your family safe on the road.

Recovering compensation after an injury from a defective product
It is a manufacturer’s responsibility to make sure their products are safe for consumers. If someone is injured or dies due to a defective product, a product liability claim may exist. A claim may be pursued to pay for damages caused by the defective product such as medical bills, missed time from work and pain and suffering.
If you or someone you know has been seriously injured by a defective product, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney to review your rights. Call 412-661-1400 to schedule a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer in Pittsburgh at Berger and Green today.
