More defective airbags recalled

It seems like it wasn't long ago when millions of vehicles were recalled due to defective airbag inflators that were known to throw shrapnel throughout a vehicle, including into drivers and passengers. These Takata-made airbag inflators have caused 290 injuries worldwide, and 23 people have been killed by them, which is nothing short of tragic. As of recently, 37 million vehicles in America had been recalled to replace defective air inflators, but another recall has increased that total even more.

Walking along or across the street shouldn't be an activity that causes fear. After all, we expect motorists to act with a certain level of care that gives us a sense of protection.

Yet, the very grim reality is that pedestrian accidents are more common than many people think, which may make you think twice about crossing the street.

Understanding options in auto product liability cases

It seems like every week there is some type of recall related to cars and defective auto products. Since these recalls have become so common, it may seem like they're not a big deal. This isn't true. These dangerous products put innocent individuals in harm's way, threatening to cause serious car crashes that can leave people injured or killed. This is unacceptable, and those companies that are responsible for putting these products on the marketplace need to be held accountable.
