Every day, manufacturers from every industry in the marketplace find and report defects with their products. Some are minor and result in little more than frustration. Others can be dangerous and even life-threatening. At Bailey Law, we want to make sure you are made aware of the most current, notable product recalls and know that you have a Personal Injury Lawyer in Texas who is on your side.
Vehicle Recalls: Volkswagen Audi Takata Airbag Recall
Audi is recalling many of its cars that use Takata airbags. Exposure to intense humidity for an extended period of time may cause the airbags to either not deploy fully or, on some occasions, explode. This kind of accident can cause extremely severe injuries to vehicle occupants, and may even result in a tragic death.
If you or someone you know has suffered an injury in a car accident because of an airbag malfunction, we want to urge you not to stay silent or take a settlement from the manufacturer until you speak with a Personal Injury Lawyer in Texas. You may be entitled to significant compensation, often much more than the company may offer you initially.
Airbags and other auto components are recalled all the time. We recommend that you look up your vehicle at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website to see if yours is under recall for any reason.
If you believe you may have a personal injury case due to a vehicle defect, please do not hesitate to contact Bailey Law today.
Graco Little Lounger Recall
The Little Lounger is an inclined rocking seat from Graco. While the concept of an inclined sleeper may sound like a good idea, when infants are learning to roll over, they may roll onto their belly and not be able to turn to their backside again. If this happens, your baby could be in danger of suffocation.
Virtually every baby bed poses this risk to a small extent. However, the inclined design of the Little Lounger and similar makes and models of baby sleepers make it much more difficult than usual for the baby to roll back over or for the parents to hear their baby crying and come to help.
Because of this design flaw, Graco has recalled over 100,000 Little Loungers due to reports of infant fatalities from other inclined sleeper products. Kolcraft has also recalled their inclined sleeper, the Cuddle n’ Care, for the same reason.
If you and your family have experienced the trauma and tragedy of infant death due to a product malfunction with the Graco Little Lounger, Kolcraft’s Cuddle n’ Care Bassinet, or any other baby products, please contact Blake Bailey today. While financial restitution can never make up for such a loss, it can help cover medical and funeral expenses and provide for your family during this very difficult time.
Consumer products should be safe. However, recalls are issued all the time for every kind of product imaginable. To look up a product you believe may be dangerously defective, go to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) website.
If you believe you have suffered a severe injury because of a product malfunction, please call Bailey Law in Texas today.
Blendtopia Smoothie Recall
Blendtopia has recalled over 29,000 cases of Superfood Smoothie Kits. These cases of the product may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria monocytogenes is a dangerous substance if ingested by humans. In most adults, the effect of Listeria monocytogenes will likely be mild symptoms of sickness, including nausea, fever, diarrhea, and more, which will usually not last long. However, for young children, pregnant women, and the elderly, an infection may result in death or miscarriage.
If you have recently purchased a Superfood Smoothie Kit from Blendtopia, please discontinue use immediately. If you or a loved one has recently suffered from severe sickness, death, or miscarriage, please contact our law office today to schedule a consultation with Attorney Blake Bailey. He will stand by your side and develop a strong case on your behalf to win the restitution you deserve.
The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issues recalls for food and drug products almost every day from various manufacturers and industries. If you believe you have a product that may be under recall, you can search for it on the FDA’s website. If you or a family member has suffered from a severe personal injury or tragic death due to a food or drug product defect, please call Blake Bailey today. We will fight for you.
