Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Vans Recalled For Hood Opening While Driving Risk

It seems like Mercedez-Benz Sprinter vans are everywhere you look these days. Plumbers, electricians, and carpenters are switching over to them. They also appear to be the vehicle of choice for delivery drivers. There is certainly nothing wrong with people going this route. The brand offers consumers a touch of sophistication and class. Their cars, vans, and SUVs are also known to be dependable and reliable.

People are comfortable purchasing them because they don't believe they will leave them stranded on the side of the road. Owners also appreciate that Mercedez-Benz vehicles have plenty of power. They can tow heavy loads and haul just about anything a person needs them to. This isn't an advertisement, though. Much like other things human-made, these units can have problems too.

That is actually what brings us here today. Beginning January 18, 2021, Daimler Vans USA is expected to recall one 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 vehicle. Yes, you read that right, one. However, it could be just a matter of time before more get added to the list. The company's recall number for this issue is VS3SCHAUBE, but information can also be found via the NHSTA, through campaign number 20V772000.

Apparently, the hood of this vehicle may not have been installed correctly. If a hood opens while a car is in motion, the driver won't be able to see. The lack of sight could cause them to strike a vehicle, bicyclist, or pedestrian. Meanwhile, if a hood flies off a van while in operation, it can hit someone or something and create a road hazard. Although this issue may not seem too big at the moment, how many times have we seen small problems turn into major headaches? The answer is too many to count.

People Sustain Severe Injuries In Auto Accidents


Have you ever heard anyone say, "I can't wait to get into a car crash today!" Probably not, why would they? Folks don't want to be involved in accidents because they can leave them severely hurt. Broken bones, whiplash, and paralysis could come to fruition. Brain damage, loss of limbs, and burns are other potential outcomes. The list can go on and on. However, as much as people try to avoid accidents, sometimes there is no stopping them, like when manufacturer defects are present.

Vehicles are supposed to be safe and ready for consumers to use when they hit the open market. Unfortunately, that isn't always how things go, though. Victims who sustain injuries in recalled vehicles can file lawsuits against the manufacturers. They can seek compensation for their damages, but getting them to pay up is easier said than done. These corporations have lawyers that make victims feel like they are on trial.

When they do offer settlements, they are typically way too small. People that accept them often find they won't cover their medical expenses, lost wages, or much of anything else. Floridians can combat these issues by putting top-notch legal representation in their corner. Our partners have recovered over $500 million for accident victims. They have also successfully resolved more than 10,000 injury cases.

Don't let a manufacturer get away with highway robbery following your crash. Instead, make them pay by contacting us. We offer free case reviews because victims shouldn't have to break the bank to see where their claims stand. Also, our clients only pay when compensation is recovered. It is a win-win situation. So, please, don't hesitate to contact us if the need arises. Courteous, respectful, and trustworthy representation is only a phone call away.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
