Andover, Massachusetts (PRWEB) April 28, 2013
According to CBS Local, six of the world’s largest auto manufacturers including Honda, Nissan, and Toyota have voluntarily recalled more than three million vehicles due to defective airbags. Kiley Law Group defective product attorneys view the recalls as an ongoing failure to provide the public with consistently safe transportation and comments on the public’s decreasing confidence in product manufacturers.
Five years ago, Toyota was one of the most trusted auto manufacturers believed to provide very safe vehicles that rarely, if ever, failed to meet consumer expectations. Now, Toyota Motor Corporation will have to fix or inspect 1.7 million vehicles, including the Lexus SC 430, Corolla, Sequoia, Tundra and Matrix, says CBS Local.
These latest recalls have come as no surprise after Toyota recalled millions of vehicles between 2009 and 2010 for defective gas pedals, floor mats and faulty break devices. Out of all six of the auto manufacturers affected by the most recent concerns over faulty airbags, more than three million vehicles will have been recalled. According to CBS Local, the airbags in question were used in many different models of vehicles across many manufacturers.
Tom Kiley Sr., Massachusetts defective product attorney, has assisted a number of people who have suffered serious injuries as a result of defective products. “It was not long ago that consumers had a general feeling of attachment towards brands like Toyota, Johnson & Johnson, and other companies that have managed to win over the public with long track records of producing safe products. Over the last few years, we have seen a troubling increase in hazardous products being released to the public, which are later found to contribute to serious, life-threatening and life-altering injuries. We believe that these latest recalls are only further decreasing the remaining faith that consumers have in these brands and product manufacturers in general.
“Having assisted injury victims for several decades, we have seen what happens when companies fail to provide their consumers with safe devices and products. Whether a company is producing vehicles, children’s medicine, hip replacement products, or any other product, they have a responsibility to make sure that it is relatively safe for use. When they fail to provide their consumers with the most basic safety, they open themselves up to product defect lawsuits. We hope that these types of scenarios help producers prioritize safety and, in turn, their consumer’s safety,” said Attorney Kiley.
