Infiniti Q45 Recalled, Air Bags Could Fail to Deploy

According to several news outlets, multiple models of the Infiniti Q45 vehicles manufactured by Nissan are being recalled over a possible issue with the car’s air bags.

The official statement has been released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and it has demonstrated that about 5,700 units of the models 2003, 2004 and 2005 Infiniti Q45 sedans are equipped with an electrical wiring that could be disconnected if the driver or passenger attempt to adjust their seats.

This problem could lead to a probable malfunction of the vehicle’s air bag system, which could then result in the air bags failing to deploy in the event of a crash.

As an injury lawyer in Seattle I agree with the federal agency and hope all owners of the 2003 to 2005 Infiniti Q45 vehicles will contact the company at once to schedule a free inspection. The company has claimed that if necessary, a repair of the vehicle’s wiring system will be provided free of charge.

Don’t wait until you’re injured to respond to a recall, act fast and ensure the safety of your loved ones.

Wreck On SR 20 Leaves Drunken Driver Injured, WSP Reports

A man from old Port Townsend was allegedly taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle by helicopter after a tragic accident on State Route 20 last Monday. News articles show that the wreck happened after three in the afternoon and that it was caused because the driver was drinking before driving.

The 39-year-old man was driving a Toyota pickup truck on SR 20 toward Discover Bay when the vehicle reportedly left the lane and drifted to the side near Fairmount Road. It rotated a few times before it rested upside down in a ditch. There were no details about the use of seat belts by any of the two men involved in the accident.

The Washington State Patrol has released an official report saying that the motorist was driving under the influence of alcohol and that the passenger, a 49-year-old man was allegedly left unharmed. At this moment, a personal injury lawyer in the Seattle area could be assisting the passenger.

After the authorities responded to the accident, the pickup truck was towed since it was severely damaged.

As a Renton car accident lawyer I personally wish a speedy recovery to the driver involved in this DUI case. Hopefully, this sad accident will serve as a true example of how risky drinking and driving can be.

Firefighter Is Struck While Responding to Crash On Interstate 5

According to the local news, an engineer/firefighter from South King Fire & Rescue was responding to a call from a rollover accident on southbound Interstate 5 when some time after 5:30 a.m. a vehicle struck him.

The accident happened on Sunday. The 52-year-old firefighter was assessing a rollover crash that slowed the Interstate down when a 1996 Chevrolet Blazer driven by a 26-year-old man hit the firefighter. According to witnesses, the man lost control of the vehicle when he got closer to the scene of the accident.

The Washington State Patrol claims that the victim suffered head injuries and was allegedly unconscious when taken to the Hospital.

Reports show that the firefighter sadly struck while on duty is in a critical condition. The authorities haven’t released the causes of the accident. According to the news, the driver responsible for the rollover crash the firefighter was responding to, had left the accident scene before medical crews arrived.

As a Federal Way car accident lawyer, I urge all motorists to be extremely careful when driving down icy roads. Winter conditions may pose threats to drivers and pedestrians, staying alert will lower the probability of crashes. Let’s hope the firefighter will have a speedy recovery without any major difficulties.

For all victims of accidents caused by third parties, contact a personal injury lawyer in your area, don’t wait too long.

GE Recalls Gas Rangetop Grill Due to Explosion Hazard

In a press statement, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in conjunction with General Electric Appliances, announced the recall of the GE Monogram Pro Rangetop with Grill due to the risks of delayed ignition and explosion that they pose to consumers.

This recall was initiated after it was discovered that the burners, which operate on liquefied petroleum (LP), might fail to ignite or light if the gas control knob is positioned between the OFF and LITE settings. This poses a risk of delayed ignition or explosion to consumers. The affects grill units are either 36 or 48 inches wide and feature a stainless steel finish and the GE Monogram badge on the front of the unit. The front control panel overhangs the cabinet and contains the burner control knobs. Only LP models and natural gas models that have been converted for use with LP are affected by this recall. GE is planning to notify known owners of these units and provide free repair to individuals that have converted their Rangetop Grills to LP. These grills were available through GE authorized representatives and distributors nationwide from May 2008 until August 2011.

GE has been informed of six incidents involving explosions with LP operating grills, including damage to kitchen cabinets beneath the grill. No fires or injuries have been reported.

As a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I’ve seen similar recalls in past and know the very real dangers these defective products present to consumers. If you’ve been injured through the use of a defective product, call a personal injury lawyer in your town to discuss your rights as a consumer.
