Volkswagen troubles highlight intersection of personal injury, product liability, P.2

In our last post, we began speaking about the failure of automobile manufacturer Volkswagen to report deaths and injuries connected with its vehicles, as well as litigation associated with those accidents. Volkswagen is certainly not the only manufacturer at fault in this area, but is one of the bigger offenders.

Volkswagen troubles highlight intersection of personal injury, product liability, P.1

Car accidents can occur for a whole host of reasons, and can involve fault not only on the part of the drivers involved, but also third parties. One possibility for third party liability in car accident cases is when there are defects with a vehicle. Here again, the possibilities are many, and motorists often aren’t aware of when their vehicle may be at risk.

Where safe driving habits really start for teens

For a teenager who is a newly minted driver, there is nothing like the newfound freedom that comes with being able to drive. Gone are the days of depending on mom or dad to get from Point A to Point B. This means that hanging out with friends at the mall or going to football games will be so much easier.

How drivers can protect themselves from deer accidents

In a number of our posts lately we have talked about fall hazards. The change in seasons should bring a change in driving habits, especially considering the challenges with weather and visibility. Indeed, fog, rain and occasional icy conditions can prove to be dangerous, but drivers must also look out for animals crossing the road; especially in rural areas.

Myths that some truckers may still believe

We all know that semi-trucks are among the most dangerous vehicles on the road. After all, the sheer size and weight of these trucks compared to passenger cars makes them hazardous to the health of drivers and passengers in the event of an accident. However, there are a number of truck drivers who may not realize how dangerous the vehicles they operate can be. They may be driven by myths about how semi-trucks are different and that the safety rules that apply to passenger cars may not necessarily apply to them.

What drivers should always do to avoid pedestrian accidents

While a number of our posts focus on how drivers must look out for large trucks that may do them harm, or be aware of other distracted or drunk drivers, they have a continuing obligation to look out for pedestrians. Unlike crashes with other vehicles, car-pedestrian crashes can be particularly devastating for the pedestrian.

Helpful driving tips for construction zones

It may go without saying, but drivers must be especially careful in construction zones. While a number of precautions are taken through clear marking of these zones, they still can be confusing and difficult to navigate. Because of this, it is critical that drivers (especially young drivers) pay attention to this blog post so that they can garner some helpful tips.

Fall hazards that drivers should be aware of

If you woke up this morning and felt a difference in the air, your senses are leading you in the right direction. The first full day of fall occurred this week, and we will soon see the leaves on trees change, the air will become chillier and soon enough, fall will give way to winter. But before then, drivers must adjust to the hazards that fall can bring.

Two more Toyotas win IIHS honors

Over the past two years, Toyota Motor Corporation has endured a great deal of criticism stemming from the sudden acceleration problems found in Camrys and Lexus ES 300 models. In fact, a man from Minnesota who had been jailed for causing a fatal accident was set free after research showed that his Camry, instead of the driver, was at fault in the crash. In 2014, Toyota was one of the many automakers ensnared in the Takata airbag recall. As we had noted in a prior post, it appeared that 2015 would be the year for additional recalls, particularly from Toyota.
