Kia and Hyundai vehicles may have dangerous auto defects

There are numerous components that make a motor vehicle function effectively. A defect in any one of these component parts can pose a serious safety risk. As a result, unsuspecting motorists can be injured in accidents or fires. It is for the protection of consumers that the law allows individuals to pursue an auto product liability lawsuit when their injuries are directly linked to a defective auto product.

Encinitas pedestrian accident leaves one dead

Those who find themselves walking near roadways or in crosswalks can be put in danger when motorists drive negligently. Negligent drivers who fail to yield, swerve off the road or fail to properly share the road can strike a pedestrian, leaving him or her with injuries. Since pedestrians don't have the protections afforded by those driving some sort of vehicle, they often wind up with injuries that are quite severe. In the worst cases, death results.

Poor truck maintenance can cause serious car accidents

Semi-trucks, when driven improperly, can be extremely dangerous. A fatigued, intoxicated or distracted trucker can swerve into oncoming traffic or fail to stop at a traffic light, slamming into another vehicle. Because of their sheer size, these vehicles can cause an enormous amount of damage, leaving other motorists in California with serious injuries. In the worst cases, when semi trucks collide with other motorists it can result in loss of life.

Californians expect the vehicles they drive to be safe. In order to ensure this safety, a motor vehicle needs to be well-thought out and executed, starting with its initial design. Unfortunately, many times there are design or manufacturing defects that cause vehicles to pose a risk to unsuspecting motorists. This can lead to an auto product recall, but sometimes those recalls come far too late.

This pain, called neuropathic pain, is not useful.
