Millions Of Vehicles Recalled Due to Fire Risk

Posted By Simpson Law Group LLP Trial Attorneys Posted in:Product Liability

October 20 2018

You may have seen on the news that BMW has been forced to recall 1.6 million vehicles all over the world due to fluid leaks that could lead to a fire. The company says that some diesel vehicles coolant could leak from the exhaust gas recirculation module and that this could combine with soot at high temperatures and catch fire.

The recall covers vehicles made between 2010 and 2017 and that 54,700 vehicles are affected throughout the US and Canada.

We know that the last thing you think about when you get into your vehicle for the day is that something will go wrong and cause you harm. But think about this – there are parts made by dozens of manufacturers inside your vehicle. Anyone of them could malfunction and cause harm.

And it is not just vehicles. Thousands of products are under recall in the US right now. Do you know what to do it you or a loved one are hurt by something you use or consume?

If you need a San Diego product liability attorney, you can count on the Simpson Law Group to be by your side, fighting to get the compensation you deserve.

What Can Happen?

From the moment we wake up and start our day, we rely on thousands of products to get us through. We encounter a dozen products by just making our coffee. Think about how many are in our office buildings or in our fast food burger.

Looking at the government recall website, we can see that there are thousands of products that could potentially cause consumers harm. Let’s look at the ways that product liability cases arise:

  • Products are poorly designed, to begin with, leading them to malfunction and injure consumers
  • Products encounter a manufacturing error that alters them from their original design. This can also lead to consumer injuries
  • Improper labeling can lead to injuries if companies do not list the risks associated with their products (allergens, side effects, hazards, etc.). This can also include improper dosage labels for medications

Product liability cases can include hard goods that we use as well as things we consume (food, drinks, medications). While the US has strict regulations in place, we are finding that more and more people rely on good purchased on the Internet from other countries that may not have as many safety regulations.
