We hold manufacturers responsible in product liability cases

Last week, we wrote about the massive recall of certain Graco car seat models earlier this month. As we explained, the recall is primarily due to an allegedly defective buckle that could make it difficult to remove the child from the seat in an emergency situation.

While Graco fiercely fought allegations that the buckle was defective, it finally gave-in and recalled certain car seat models after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration declared that failing to do so would pose an “unreasonable risk.”

Focus: Graco's unprecedented recall of defective child car seats

Seeing a picture in an article published earlier this month by the Los Angeles Times that shows a safety inspector checking child safety seats while two infants peer out from behind their safety harnesses is admittedly cute.

It also serves as a stark reminder of the preciousness and fragility of toddlers and the need to ensure that there are no question marks regarding the safety equipment manufactured to protect them.

Been injured in a commercial vehicle crash? We can help

California sees a lot of commercial vehicle traffic. As a result, accidents involving commercial vehicles are very common in the state.

Even though commercial vehicle drivers are governed by strict rules and regulations, negligence is still a common cause of these accidents.

In some cases, commercial drivers are over-tired and doze off behind the wheel. In other cases, drivers exceed the speed limit in order to make better time. In others yet, drivers fail to keep a proper lookout for other cars when turning or changing lanes.

California city considers ordinance to reduce dog attacks

A California city is deciding whether to combat serious and fatal dog bite attacks by implementing an ordinance that would require all dog and cat owners to spay or neuter their animals over the age of six months. The measure is also aimed at reducing overpopulation of unwanted or stray animals.

The Pasadena City Council will consider the measure at a meeting tonight. Violators of the ordinance would face a fine. There would be an exception for pets that are service animals, too sick for surgery as well as law enforcement dogs.

Lawmakers considering ignition interlock mandate

Family members who have lost loved ones in drunk driving accidents know that there is no amount of money that can ever make them whole again. Unfortunately, this is a reality suffered by the families of thousands of Americans each year.

In effort to help put a stop to repeat drunk drivers, a bill has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives that would require all states to implement an ignition interlock law requiring all DUI/DWI offenders to install the devices in their vehicles for at least six months.

Electric motorcycles: how do they stack up in safety terms

In the automobile industry, there has been a lot of hype in recent years about hybrids and plug-in electric cars.

To a degree this is entirely understandable, given concerns about limiting the carbon impact of humans on a planet that is experiencing significant climate change.

But what about motorcycles?

In this post, we will consider take note of recent efforts to roll out electronic motorcycles. We will also discuss safety considerations involved with this new type of bike.

California coaster hits tree branch, derails

Visiting one of California’s amusement parks is the highlight of the summer for many young people. However, the fun times can quickly come to a screeching halt when unsafe rides put park-goers in danger.

Unfortunately, that appears to be what happened on Monday at the Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park in Santa Clarita. According to reports, four riders were injured when the “Ninja” rollercoaster struck a tree branch and the front car of the coaster derailed.

Chrysler slow to fix recalled Jeeps

Last summer, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration asked the automaker Chrysler to recall 2.7 million Jeeps over concerns that the vehicles were involved in many fires after rear-end crashes. In a rare response to a request from the nation’s auto safety agency, Chrysler refused.

Instead, the automaker published a paper showing data suggesting that its Jeeps were not involved in a significantly higher number of rear-crash fires compared to other similar vehicles during the same time period. However, Chrysler and the NHTSA eventually agreed to a recall of a fewer number of Jeeps.

Why hire a personal injury lawyer? (2 of 2)

Welcome back. In our last post, we began discussing why it's important to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer after being injured in a car accident with a negligent driver.

As we said, the other driver's insurance company -- and maybe even your own insurance company -- might try to lead you to believe that you will be offered a fair settlement or that you don't need a personal injury lawyer, but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Why hire a personal injury lawyer? (1 of 2)

If you were injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver, you may be wondering if you should hire a personal injury lawyer. The answer to that question is most certainly yes.

Following a car accident, people assume that they will be treated fairly by the insurance companies involved, but this is almost never the case.

Insurance companies aren't on your side and they have an interest in saving themselves money, which is why they provide accident victims with low-ball settlement offers while making them think that it is the highest settlement they can get.
