- Braun Corporation Conversion Van Recall Effects Many Models
Many people in the United States need the help of special conversion vehicles to get around. These conversion vehicles are almost always vans and usually contain lifts, ramps and other equipment designed to help passengers get into and out of a vehicle safely. The market for these types of vehicles is generally larger than most would suspect, which is why when some of these special vehicle models turn out to be defective, it can create a high degree of danger for those using them and necessitate help from an experienced defective products lawyer.
Unfortunately for many, one manufacturer of these conversion vans has recently released word of a recall of several models of its units, and the details appear below.
Braun Corporation Conversion Van Recall
The Braun Corporation is one of the leading manufacturers of conversion vans, specifically the add-on equipment that’s built into existing vans that allow for those with special needs to travel. The equipment they manufacture includes the ramps and lifts needed to get into and out of these vehicles, and the company recently initiated a recall of thousands of models because of a dangerous defect that’s been discovered. Overall, more than 5,000 units could be defective. Specifically, the recall affects Chevrolet Uplander Vans from models dated from 2005 to 2008.
The reason for the recall is that the side trailing arm on either side of the vehicle may not have been properly welded into place. As a result of this defect, it’s possible that a squeaking or clunking noise could develop. While this noise is not in itself a dangerous defect, it should serve as a warning sign that there is a more dangerous problem with the vehicle. The concern is that these noises may indicate that the trailing arm bushings may wear out prematurely. This could lead to the fracturing or even separation of the trailing arm, which could cause the rear axle of the vehicle to separate from the chassis. This is a dangerous condition that could dramatically increase the risk of a crash.

They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
