Safety Links and Recall Resources

Today we’re driving some of the safest cars ever made, (Buckle Seat belts, Air Bags, Anti-lock brakes, Traction control, Back-up cameras, etc.), yet crash fatalities remain the leading cause of death in the United States for persons 3-34 years of age.   In an effort to save lives, many organizations work together to educate the public, train drivers, and do what they can to make our roads safer. In our effort to extend the education and awareness, we hope you find this information below useful.

Safety Links and Recall Resources

There are several places you can go to ensure that you’re driving, or purchasing a vehicle, which can withstand the impact of a crash.

Car Seats to Car Keys

Your car, seats and traveled roads are only part of the big picture.  Each driver has an obligation and responsibility to drive safely and to remain watchful and proactive.  Wisconsin weather and heavy travel due to the holidays, adds more risk and hazards.  If you are injured due to the negligence of another driver, contact Action Law Offices for a free consultation.   The personal injury attorneys begin working immediately to gather key information about the accident, evaluate the case, and explain the next steps.
