Defective Trailer Hitches Cited by National Highway Safety Administration

According to the National Highway Safety Administration, the Keystone RV Company has recently released a recall on some of its 2013 Bullet and Passport trailers.

The presumed defect in these trailers is in the mounting fasteners for the stabilizing jacks. The mounting system attaches and secures the trailer to the vehicle which is towing it. An estimated 2,336 trailers will be affected by this hazardous defect.

As you can probably imagine, when driving through city traffic or while driving down the open highway, if a trailer suddenly becomes detached from the vehicle that is pulling it, this can cause serious danger to other drivers on the road who are following behind the defective trailer.

If you or someone you know has been in an accident where something like this has occurred, where one vehicle became unhinged from another vehicle and causes a wreck or serious injury, you should contact a lawyer who specializes in product defects and personal injury. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney can look at the vehicles and products involved; and your attorney can, through in-depth research into the issue and consultation with proper expert witnesses, determine whether a defective product is to blame for the accident.
