There are tons of different cars, trucks, and SUVs traveling on Sarasota’s streets each day. So, it should come as no surprise if you see what people consider typical brands such as Ford, Chevrolet, and Chrysler. However, the area is also full of vehicles thought of as high-end models like BMW, Mercedes, and Land Rover. Speaking of the latter, that is what we are here to discuss today.

BMW has become a status symbol over the years. Consumers choose these vehicles because they’re reliable and have handsome/elegant appearances. Of course, there are many other reasons in-between, but why people buy the cars isn’t really the focus. The last thing anybody wants, whether they drive a BMW or not, is to get into a wreck.

Yet, that’s exactly what can happen in Sarasota and surrounding areas if people aren’t careful. Even if you’re the safest driver on the roadways, that might not save you grief. After all, you aren’t the only person driving these streets. If a negligent motorist is in your vicinity, that could be all it takes. Then, the next thing you know, you’re in the hospital with severe ailments like:

  • • Fractures and broken bones
  • • Whiplash
  • • Traumatic brain injury
  • • Spinal cord issues
  • • Internal organ damages

Obviously, there are probably a million other things that could be listed here, but the point is that you can become severely injured in such a crash. If that happens, you’ll have expenses for car repairs, medical care, and more. So, it might be in your best interest to seek compensation from the liable party. Providing that the case wins, the funds will ensure you can afford everything and your recovery won’t be hindered. But what if there isn’t someone else to blame?

What Is Manufacturer’s Liability?

Manufacturer’s liability is a doctrine that holds, as the name implies, manufacturers/sellers liable for products sold on the markets place. Typically, this concept is determined by breach of contract, strict liability, or negligence. All of these things probably sound pretty complex to you, and why wouldn’t they? Don’t fret if you fall into that category. Instead, hire a personal injury attorney to take care of the legal matter. Stay tuned and read on to the next section. Then, you’ll understand why we’re telling you this.

BMW Of North America, LLC

It has come to our firm’s attention that there may be some BMW vehicles in Sarasota and elsewhere that could be dangerous to their owners and others. Presently, there are only two units potentially affected, but that figure may increase quickly. The models in question are 2022 X3 xDrive30i cars. Now, the question is, “What’s wrong with them?”.

These vehicles have high-pressure fuel rails, like many others on the market today. However, the particular parts on the BMW vehicles may crack. That increases the risk of a fire. These pieces are located within the engine compartment, where an ignition source could easily be found for flames to ignite. Hence, if you have a X3 xDrive30i vehicle in your driveway, it’s probably a good idea to contact a local Sarasota dealership. They should be able to tell you if your car is involved and if there is a remedy.
