A Nashville Injury Attorney Discusses the Best and Worst SUV Rollover Ratings in 2013

While a selling point of a sport-utility vehicle (SUV) often includes the safety afforded by its size and power, SUVs are actually more at risk for rollover accidents than other non-commercial vehicles. Due to its high center of gravity and the short distance between its left and right wheels, the SUV is top heavy, making it less stable and more likely to rollover when turning. In a rollover accident, the roof of an SUV will often collapse inward, leading to serious injuries such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and wrongful death for its occupants. How Are SUV Rollover Ratings Determined? According to U.S. Department of Transportation, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determines the rollover ratings for SUVs using a series of tests and a five-star rating system. The tests and rating system are used to tell how well the vehicles are equipped to avoid rollovers and…

Graco Refuses to Recall Rear Facing Children’s Car Seats

Some businesses try to avoid recalling products by informing consumers of ways to circumvent a product defect, such as obtaining a spare part or taking it in for repair. However, if the defect is likely to cause an accident or injury, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says that consumers should not need to take any addition measures when using a product. Furthermore, using a product in a non-standard way in an emergency situation is incredibly dangerous. For example, Graco, the manufacturer of car seats for small children, refuses to recall its faulty rear-facing car seats. The seats have a defective buckle. If sticky food or drink is spilled on the buckle, which happens often with small children, then it is very difficult to release.
