Arizona Car Accident Law Firm Phillips Law Group is Investigating Injury Claims Linked to Recalled General Motors Vehicles

The driver, so far unnamed, had worked a lot of overtime before the accident, Kelly claims. NTSB officials say the plan to interview her about the accident, but she was hospitalized at the time. It is unclear whether she has yet to be released or interviewed. Service on the Blue Line of the Chicago commuter train, known as the L train, has been suspended between OHare and Rosemont . The line was undergoing some renovation at the time of the crash, but it is unknown whether that could have played a factor. Both track work and driver fatigue have been factors in commuter crashes in recent years. In December, a Metro-North train in New York City derailed after it went around a curve too fast. Four were killed and dozens injured in the crash.

E-mail Address Send to a Friend PHOENIX, ARIZ. (PRWEB) March 25, 2014 Auto accident law firm Phillips Law Group is currently investigating alleged injury and wrongful death claims related to the General Motors (GM) recalls announced in February and March of 2014. “With more than 3.1 million vehicles recalled in two months, it seems General Motors may not have considered how dangerous a defect found during testing can be once the vehicle goes to the public,” said Jeffrey Phillips, Partner at Phillips Law Group. “We hope that the U.S. attorney’s investigation into the matter provides the answers many vehicle owners are seeking. GM should be held accountable for their actions, which is why we are investigating injury claims linked to the millions of recalled vehicles.” The National High Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced on Feb. 10, 2014 that General Motors would be recalling more than 619,000 Chevrolet Cobalts, model years 2005-2007, and 2007 Pontiac G5s. According to NHTSA campaign number 14V047000, announced on Feb. 24, 2014 that an additional 748,024 vehicles were recalled for the same issues, including 2006-2007 Chevrolet HHR and Pontiac Solstice models, 2003-2007 Saturn Ions and 2007 Saturn Sky. According to General Motors, the airbags of the affected vehicles may not deploy if the key moves out of the “run” position. On Feb. 25, the company announced online that the recall condition may have led to non-deployment of front airbags in 31 crashes and caused 13 deaths.

O’Hare Airport Train Crash Causes Injury for 32 Passengers

The number of fatal automobile crashes in Texas has been on the decline since 1980, but for the past two years, both injury and fatal car accidents in Texas have risen. The increase in traffic fatalities has been linked to the states growth and economy, the Insurance Council of Texas (ICT) reported. With Texas rapid population growth and strong economy more people are on its highways and that translates into more accidents and more people getting hurt, said Anne McCartt, senior vice president of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). In 2003, Texas Department of Transportation figures showed the state had 190,878 injury crashes, but the number had dropped to 139,690, or a 27 percent decline by 2011.In the past two years the numbers have risen, exceeding 152,000.
