Graco faces major fines for delaying car seat recall

You may remember Graco’s massive recall last year of nearly 2 million car seats because of a potentially defective buckle that could make it difficult for a child to be removed from his or her seat in an emergency situation. If not, we discussed it in this post.

At first, the global child-products maker fought regulators on the issue, claiming that the buckles didn’t need to be recalled. But Graco finally gave in to regulators’ demands to remedy the situation and what resulted was the largest ever recall of car seats.

Cellphones not the only cause of distracted driving

A new study suggests that while teen drivers understand the dangerous distraction that using a cellphone to talk or text while driving poses, they might need more reminders about other forms of distractions while driving.

The study was discussed at the recent Pacific Northwest Transportation Consortium, which included both educators and transportation professionals from five universities.

The truth about food poisoning: Most common culprits

Food poisoning is the topic of the week on our blog, and if you have read our past two posts, you know that food-borne illnesses can wreak havoc on a person’s life for a lot longer than a week.

In fact, bacteria such as E. coli can end up causing life-threatening problems years after a person has seemingly recovered from the infection.

The truth about food poisoning: Holding the food industry liable

Welcome back. As we began discussing in the previous post, food poisoning can mean a lot more than feeling violently ill for a few days. Food-borne illnesses can actually lead to many serious health complications as well as death on rare occasions.

In our last post, we discussed how E. coli can lead to the deadly condition known as hemolytic uremic syndrome, which can cause the kidneys and other organs to fail years after recovering from the food-borne illness.

The truth about food poisoning: It might not be temporary

When most people hear the term “food poisoning” they think of a brief but unpleasant sickness. However, what people don’t realize is that food poisoning can be deadly or lead to serious health problems months or years down the road.

Food poisoning is often caused by toxic bacteria and viruses in the food we eat.

Test your personal injury law knowledge (Quiz)

Personal injury refers to legal disputes that occur when one person suffers a harm from an accident or injury that someone else may be responsible for. In many personal injury cases, it is the person who was injured taking on the responsible party’s insurance company for a fair settlement.

Many of us end up having to know something about personal injury law at some point in our lives. In most cases, it applies after being involved in a car accident or experiencing a work-related injury. But it can apply in a variety of other situations as well, including after being harmed by a medical provider, after a loved one is mistreated in a nursing home or after a simple slip-and-fall. 

Last pending case against Yamaha over Rhino ATV decided

More than 10 years ago, Yamaha introduced an all terrain vehicle (ATV) called the Rhino. Many off-roading enthusiasts were thrilled with the release, as the Rhino was packed with the power and terrain ability of a typical ATV or four-wheeler, but allows a driver and passenger to sit side-by-side, much like a golf cart.

In the years after the Rhino’s release, more and more accidents were reported. Many of the accidents involved unexpected vehicle rollovers, and some involved catastrophic injuries or even death. The real shocker is that many of these incidents occurred while users were riding leisurely in their own backyards.

When a dog attacks a small child

For parents with small children, there are few things that can stoke terror in their hearts as much as their child suffering serious injuries. One circumstance under which small children are sometimes seriously injured are dog attacks.

When a dog attacks a small child, the child's face and neck may end up taking the brunt of the attack, as small children and dogs are often at about eye level with each other. Thus, among the injuries young children can end up suffering in dog attacks are significant neck and face injuries.
