Ford Motor Co recalls vehicles

Ford Motor Company has issued a recall for more than 500 2012 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles because of faulty welds in the head restraint support brackets for the second-row right-hand seats.

According to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard #22, the defect is a violation and must be repaired or replaced. The defect could result in the head restraint failing to provide adequate support in the event of a crash. Standard #22 reads, "Proper head restraints must limit rearward displacement of a seated occupant's head relative to the occupant's torso and reduce the frequency and severity of neck injuries in rear-end and other collisions." The defect increases the risk of serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.

If you or a family member has been seriously injured due to a defect in your vehicle, I would suggest you contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who has experience in defending product liability cases against automakers.
