If you have suffered injuries as a result of Ford Paint Bucket Damage or other automotive accident, it is important that you contact a qualified car accident attorney who handles such cases. These lawsuits allow victims to collect damages for their pain and suffering, loss of earnings, and more. A Ford paint class action lawsuit instructs you on how to file a complaint against Ford. The class action form is provided to guide you through the legal process.
Ford Paint Class Action Lawsuit
In general, there are two Ford paint products used by drivers: the paint bucket and the sprayer. The paint buckets, or wheel wells as they are called, are placed under the hood of the vehicle. The sprayer, which is attached behind the vehicle’s hood, dispenses liquid paint when it is squeezed. When this happens repeatedly, paint builds up in the bucket causing it to rust. The rust eventually causes the paint to chip away from the surface of the hood. In addition to the traditional product problems, rust can also create leaks and hydrocarbon deposits beneath the hood.
There are many potential causes of paint damage or exposure.
They include f-series pickups, an aluminum hood corrosion repair, factory overproduction, or improper installation. In order to successfully bring a Ford paint class action lawsuit, you must prove three things: that your Ford was involved in an accident, that damage resulted from the accident, and that you were injured as a result of the accident. All of these require photographic documentation and accurate information about the accident and its surroundings. You may also want to retain an expert who has experience with Ford vehicles to evaluate the condition of your vehicle and repair any problems you discover.
According to the complaint, one Ford pickup truck driver alleged that he was driving west when another vehicle was boxed by a large, silver-colored cargo van.
The alleged accident occurred at a high rate of speed and the truck allegedly traveled over a bridge that connected Whitsunday Island in England to a large storage facility in Britain. While the truck allegedly continued on to the final destination, it allegedly crashed into the cargo van which was carrying an estimated worth of $300 million dollars. When it came time for the Ford truck to be repaired following the accident, it allegedly had a massive hole in its engine compartment that required extensive repairs and resulted in the truck needing replacement body panels.
A second lawsuit, this time brought against Ford, is the Explorer case.
This suit, which involves all models of the Ford Explorer, was brought on behalf of the plaintiffs (a group of children) who were killed in a car accident in 2021. The complaint alleged that the Ford truck manufacturer, Sterling Motors, failed to properly install airbags and other safety features in the Explorer and caused those features to be insufficient in order to protect the plaintiffs.
Additionally, the complaint says that the Ford motor company manufactured and sold the Explorer with improper coloring and design, and the interior of the vehicle was filled with excessive factory residue and mold. The complaint further states that the lead paint used in the Explorer also contributed to the lawsuit because it was unfit for use and toxic to the plaintiff’s child and family.
In both of these cases, the complaint is that Ford caused harm to the plaintiffs by either producing or selling a defective product, or by failing to act in a way that would have prevented harm from occurring.
If you are one of the people who have been injured in a Ford accident and are seeking compensation for your injuries, the best advice you can get is to contact an experienced car accident attorney. An experienced car accident attorney will not only find the right filing in your case, but will also aggressively pursue your claim.
Ford is known to regularly put out recalls and rebates for vehicles and accessories every few years, so it’s very easy to find replacement parts for any of your Ford Explorer’s that may have been affected by the aforementioned accidents. So don’t let the seemingly small number of Ford cars on the road get you down; you may just have a case that could be worth millions.
