Every year in the United States thousands of innocent consumers die and millions are injured due to various defective and dangerous products.
Defective products can cause a victim to suffer from a wide range of serious long- or short-term injuries, which include:
- Back and neck injuries
- Brain injuries
- Head trauma
- Spinal cord injuries
One of the most recent product recalls is from Honda - 44,000 2012-2013 Fit Sport Vehicles have been recalled due to defective stability control concerning the tires. The Fit Sport model is different from the original Fit because it has larger tires and a rear stabilizer bar.
According to reports from the U. S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the system did not react as quickly as it should have to stop a slide. The stability control system can cause the vehicle to tilt too far before it applies the brakes to prevent a crash - causing it to tip over or roll over.
To date no crashes or injuries have been reported. If you are driving a late model Honda Fit Sport Vehicle, Honda dealers will update your system's software free of charge.
Anyone who has been in a rollover accident caused by a defective vehicle would be wise to contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney in the Law Offices of Peach & Weathers, who has handled and who has a successful track record in other automobile product liability cases.
