Examples of common vehicle defects that could result in a recall

Nobody purchases a vehicle expecting to have a serious problem that could put their health at risk. But this happens a lot more often than anyone cares to admit. Countless auto manufacturers have had to institute global recalls -- of millions of vehicles -- due to simple yet potentially deadly manufacturing errors.

What would you give to bring back someone who died?

The great pain and sadness that comes from the unexpected loss of a loved one are inconceivable for someone who has never experienced it. But the longer we're alive, the more likely we'll experience this kind of pain. Tragically, one of the primary sources of an unexpected death -- the motor vehicle accident -- is usually avoidable. In most fatal crashes, police and personal injury lawyers can point the finger of blame at an individual who was careless, reckless or unlawful.

Tips to bypass the threat of a motorcycle crash

If you like to strap on a helmet, jump on your bike and ride through the Arizona desert -- or just ride your motorcycle around town -- you're going to face real dangers every day. It's impossible to bypass all of these dangers, but you can significantly reduce the chances that you'll get into a crash.

Motorcycle accidents and loss of consortium damages

If your husband or wife is seriously hurt in a motorcycle crash, you'll probably be hurting emotionally just as much as he or she is hurting physically. The worry and sadness will surely take its toll on your psyche, but what about the other things you're suffering with?

3 things to remember when writing a will

The best plans of mice and men don't always work out when it comes to estate plans. This is primarily because the person who creates an estate plan is not always the most skilled at doing it.

The Takata air bag disaster: More than just a bunch of hot air

The Takata air bag scandal is a great deal more than just a bunch of hot air. Indeed, these defective air bags have affected tens of millions of cars. According to some estimates, by the end of 2019, as many as 65 to 70 million vehicles will have been recalled as a part of this safety nightmare. To date, 23 people have already been killed by the defective devices.

Ford recalls 1 million more cars for exploding air bags

Air bags are supposed to make you safer. They're not supposed to explode and shoot metal shrapnel through your vehicle like a tiny bomb. The problem is, many Ford vehicles are equipped with defective Takata air bag inflators that are in danger of doing exactly that. Ford Motor Co. has already recalled millions of vehicles for this problem during the last several years, and recently, the company announced it will recall 953,000 more.

104,000 Mercedes recalled for air bag problems

No driver purchases a luxury automobile expecting that it will be flawed. In fact, this is precisely why people spend more to drive expensive cars like Mercedes-Benz or Lexus. After all, just the brand names imply quality, and the vehicles tend to drive better than anything else on the road.
