Takata Airbag Recall Lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania

Anapol Schwartz Personal injury lawyers filed a class action lawsuit in Pennsylvania against Takata Corporation, Honda Motor Co., and other auto makers impacted by the Takata airbag recall.  Eleven car makers have issued airbag recalls during the past year due to defective Takata airbags that may explode, shoot shrapnel and cause serious injuries. The Takata airbag lawsuit filed on November 18 alleges that Takata knew about the airbag defects as early as 2001 but failed to fully investigate the problem until recently. The reaction of manufacturers to this recall has been as grossly mismanaged as was the response to the original problem. The complaint alleges that the Takata airbag recall cheated class members because the vehicles they purchased were of lesser standard, grade and quality than was represented by automakers. Vehicle owners affected by the Takata airbag recall may be entitled to compensation for economic loss caused by the diminished value of cars with these dangerous airbags.  Contact an airbag defect lawyer to find out if you are eligible to join the Takata airbag class action... read more

Minimizing Spinal Cord Injuries Caused by Car Accidents

uto accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries, according to the Mayo Clinic. More than 40 percent of new spinal cord injuries each year occur during a car or motorcycle accident. Wearing a seatbelt can help minimize the risk of sustaining a spinal cord injury. Once the crash has occurred, there are additional precautions the Mayo clinic suggests accident victims can take to minimize the severity of spinal cord injuries including: Calling 911 immediately Avoiding moving the injured person. The wrong movement could exacerbate the injury or result in paralysis. Providing basic first aid such as stopping any bleeding and making the person comfortable without moving the head or neck Keeping the person still and place heavy towels on both sides of the neck or hold the head and neck to prevent them from moving. Car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye and change life at the same speed. No matter how careful drivers are, sometimes accidents and injuries cannot be prevented. No one should be left to deal with the aftermath of a paralyzing auto accident alone. Spinal cord injury lawyers can help victims get their life back. If it happened to you or a loved one, contact a Pennsylvania personal Injury lawyer to find out if you are eligible for compensation. View original article... read more

“Drive to Save Lives” aims to cut fatalities by 15 percent

In 2013, 33,561 people lost their lives on the roads of the United States, following a trend of more than 33,000 deaths occurring each year on the nations’ roadways. This year, the multi-state “Drive to Save Lives” program is aiming to reduce that figure by 15 percent. The most recent phase of the program was the “I-95 Columbus Day Drive to Save Lives.” Running from Friday, Oct. 10 through Monday, Oct. 13, the drive partnered state troopers from 15 states, including North Carolina, to achieve the goal of zero traffic fatalities on the Interstate 95 corridor over the four-day weekend. The corridor runs from the Canadian border in Maine to Miami, Florida, passing through more states than any other Interstate Highway. A long way – more than 1,920 miles – 181 miles of which travel through North Carolina. The Columbus Day goal of zero fatalities is certainly an ambitious one, as is the overall goal of Drive to Save Lives. Whether they are attainable is a good question. But the point of the campaigns is that so many of the deaths are preventable, commented said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “Many of them (are) because of drunk driving and from people not wearing seatbelts, speeding, and driving distracted.” During the autumn season, October has consistently been the highest month for fatal crashes. It’s the second highest month of the entire year for fatalities involving large trucks or buses. Another major element of the Drive to Save Lives Campaign is officer safety. In 2013, traffic-related incidents caused 46 officer deaths – the leading cause of line-of-duty deaths of law enforcement officers. ▪    31 officers were... read more
