Kia has recalled thousands of vehicles nationwide. The campaign was launched after the firm received several complaints, which included injuries.

According to the firm, the 2015 through 2018 Kia Sedona minivans come with power-sliding doors that may not stop moving, even when they hit an obstruction while closing.

Since a person may be entering or exiting the vehicle while the door is in action, injuries may ensue.

Safety recalls are issued often. And yet, many drivers remain unaware of the risks associated with their vehicles.

One of the most dangerous and concerning auto recalls in recent history impacts millions of vehicles nationwide. But the recall had to be split in several campaigns as companies were not able to get their hands on replacement parts quickly enough. These campaigns all had one thing in common, however. That’s the presence of air bag modules fitted with metal parts that could explode in the event of a collision.

Since many cars have yet to be recalled or at least, fixed, federal regulators are urging caution.

Every now and then we hear about accidents caused by vehicles showing equipment issues. And every now and they we fear that not enough car owners are being alerted about open recalls.

For that reason, we often talk about open recalls that impact a great number of Washingtonians and Americans in general.

According to a series of news reports, Audi has launched a recall campaign impacting over 340,000 vehicles nationwide. These units could end putting drivers and occupants in risk of being in a car fire.

Many car accidents happen because drivers are simply negligent. That doesn’t only mean that drivers will crash because they are speeding, drunk, distracted, or drowsy. Sometimes they are negligent because they fail to make sure their car are fixed after being impacted by a recall.

Recall campaigns can be associated with minor issues. But sometimes, they are tied to major problems that could lead to accidents. Other times, the issue at hand may increase the risk of injury.

Drivers should pay attention and beware of the risks.

Mercedes-Benz has announced that a new accident-related recall campaign is underway. This announcement matters because it impacts drivers across the United States. To Seattle and other Washington locations, this also matters because the issue could increase the risk of an auto accident.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Mercedes-Benz has recalled all units of the 2017 E300 4Matic, E300, and E43 AMG vehicles that have been fitted with LED headlights.

These vehicles come with low beam headlights that may not be able to illuminate the roadway enough because of a misadjustment. As a result, the driver may not see obstacles and other cars ahead well enough to avoid a possible collision.

At Bernard Law Group we take your health very seriously. That’s why we have decided to share important information concerning potentially contaminated food items that may put Washingtonians as well as residents of 12 other states in grave danger.

According to Consumer Reports, an E. coli outbreak has impacted at least 13 states in the United States and Canada. One person in each country has died as a result while 58 people so far were infected. The strain associated with this outbreak, E. coli O157: H7, has been traced back to romaine lettuce in Canada where health officials have been alerting consumers to stop eating lettuce since December 14. But here in the United States, the Food and Drug Administration as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are still investigating.

The federal agencies refuse to alert consumers whether they should refrain from eating lettuce in order to avoid being contaminated but in Canada, individuals are well aware that the consumption of lettuce, which is often eaten raw, may lead to serious and even deadly health conditions.

The holiday season brings out everybody’s creative side. But when it comes to Holiday decoration that will be used outdoors only, some businesses tend to be a little too creative, increasing the risk of plane accidents.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, displays with lots of lights may pose risks to pilots. Since lasers can, sometimes, blind pilots temporarily, pointing lasers to the sky can be dangerous and even illegal.

While many of the holiday decorations we use come with warnings that explain the dangers associated with that specific product, faulty set ups may end up causing certain lasers to point higher than what the consumer originally intended. As a result, this may cause problems to pilots in an aircraft.

Many dog bite incidents happen with animals victims are familiar with. It’s because of that reality that many victims of these horrific attacks are now speaking up.

To a mother whose child lost the left side of his face in a dog bite incident involving their own pet, this reality is all too real not to share the story with others. After the attack, which happened at home, the child was left with a jaw broken in two places. But that wasn’t the only injury the child sustained. According to the heartbroken mother, the child had his arm broken and his lung severely impacted.

By telling her son’s story, she hopes others will take the steps she didn’t take.

Every now and then, official government entities launch campaigns and other efforts to fight distracted driving. But other groups are also part of the effort, attempting to promote safety within their circles and make sure that safety comes first.

While many of these efforts happen in other states, anyone who lives in Washington will agree that distracted driving is a serious issue. As I and my colleagues see these efforts having a positive effect in other states’ communities, I find it important to share the news, helping those who follow me and my work to learn more about the risks associated with driving while distracted.

In Wisconsin, an experiment in a high school prompted teens to think twice about using their phones while behind the wheel. But not before they went to the scare of a lifetime.

With each day that goes by, news regarding the DePuy hip replacement recall continues to get worse and worse. Victim’s have been contacting asr hip replacement attorneys and sharing their horror stories regarding their hip implants. Aside from excruciating pain, they’ve also had to deal with lost wages, physical and emotional trauma. The original hip replacement is already a major ordeal for patients to go through, but the revisional surgery requires an even more extensive operation with a lengthy healing period.

To make matters worse, new information has surfaced indicating that Johnson and Johnson, Depuy’s parent company, had issued millions of dollars to orthopaedic surgeons in exchange for promoting their products. These surgeons then touted the products in medical journals and half of them failed to disclose their financial relationship with the manufacturers. Unfortunately, this is a common practice in the health care industry. In 2007, five of the major orthopaedic device manufacturers disbursed nearly $250 million in payments to surgeons.

Now, Johnson & Johnson is engaged in yet another public relations nightmare, bringing their product recall total to 11 in 2010. Considering that these defective hip replacements were implanted into almost 100,000 patients worldwide, you can bet the company is facing a multi-billion dollar class action lawsuit put together by hip replacement attorneys. DePuy announced that the revision rate is 1 in every 8 patients, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that number skyrockets as more and more victims come forward and demand the compensation they rightfully deserve.
