I was hit when a car rear-ended my vehicle because my brakes suddenly slowed my car down for no reason. Can I sue the manufacturer even if there isn’t a recall out about this issue?
You might be able to depending on an investigation of your vehicle or if there is a known issue with your car. For example, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is currently being investigated for a mysterious braking issue with its 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokees. There have been several consumers who have complained about their brakes slowing their vehicles down for no reason and almost causing them to be hit from behind or involved in crashes.
The mysterious braking is probably due to a problem with the technology that is used in these vehicles, which is supposed to help drivers avoid collisions and not cause them. If it is determined that there is a defect with the technology, you should be able to bring a lawsuit against the auto manufacturer for your damages and losses.
There are many other vehicles on the market that use the same or similar hazard detection technology, which means there are several vehicles that could potentially have technology problems that could also lead to mysterious braking and collisions.
