Dealerships selling vehicles with active recalls

North Carolina residents who are looking to buy a used car from major dealerships should be aware of the large-scale Takata airbag and other vehicle safety recalls. Safety advocates reportedly found that 25 percent of vehicles at eight different CarMax locations had safety recalls that had not been taken care of.

The dangers posed by the kitchen stove

North Carolina parents may not understand why stoves are so tempting for small children. However, they may understand just how dangerous they can be. Stove manufacturers may be liable for any injuries that a child may experience if it is not constructed in accordance with the law. A Missouri 5-year-old was awarded $35 million after he was injured by a pot containing hot water that slid off of a stove and burned him.

Airbag safety

North Carolina motorists may be interested to learn about the supplemental restraint systems that are in their vehicles. Airbags are meant to be used in conjunction with seat belts. Drivers who rely only on airbags without securing their seat belts are not being safe.

Lawsuit leads to massive recall of Dodge trucks

North Carolina motorists who own certain Dodge Ram models should watch out for recall notices. The manufacturer, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV, has initiated a recall of over 1.25 million pickup trucks because of a software error that could disable side air bags or interfere with seat belt functions.

Legal issues related to getting hurt at a gym in North Carolina

If someone is not careful at the gym, they may get hurt. Dropping equipment or straining too hard are common causes of injury. However, there are also times when patrons are hurt due to faulty equipment or equipment that is not properly maintained by the gym owners.

Breast implants increase risk of extremely rare cancer

North Carolina women who are considering breast augmentation procedures may be interested to learn that there have been nine reported deaths from a rare form of cancer that has been associated with breast implants. The Food and Drug Administration stated that women who had breast implants had a low risk of developing this particular cancer, though the risk was increased when compared to women who did not have breast implants.

Nursery products and injury

According to a Nationwide Children's Hospital study, each year, over 60,000 children under the age of 3 in North Carolina and the rest of the United States visit emergency rooms due to accidents involving nursery products. That amounts to approximately one accident every eight minutes.

Educating residents about the Note 7 fire hazard

As a result of 35 cases of Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 overheating and causing fires, the company recalled every Note 7 that had been sold. That is believed to be close to a million units sold worldwide. It has also stopped selling and shipping the product while it works with appropriate authorities to handle refunds and exchanges. Customers in North Carolina and elsewhere are being urged to return their phones immediately to avoid any issue with their devices.
