Takata Admits Defects in Airbags, 34 Million Vehicles to be Recalled

After repeatedly denying and refusing to believe that their airbags were defective even though multiple incidents were reported, on May 19, 2015, Takata finally acknowledged the obvious and admitted that their airbags were defective.

As a result, Takata has agreed to double the number of vehicles originally recalled in the United States to nearly 34 million.  This recent development will now make it the largest automotive recall in American vehicle history.

The problem with the air bags is with the inflators, which have exploded when involved in accidents causing shards of sharp metal into the vehicle.  Takata reports that manufacturing problems, together with exposure to moisture in cars in humid regions, can cause the propellant to degrade.  This causes the propellant to burn too strongly when the airbag is deployed, and ruptures the inflator.

At this time, it is unknown which models of cars would be recalled until coordination is completed with automakers, and what the final tally will be.  Previously, ten automakers have already recalled vehicles because of this defect.

Americans rely on manufacturers to provide a safe well-designed product.  Sadly, that is not often the case.  The Auto Defect Attorneys at The Brandi Law Firm have successfully represented many people injured from defective autos such as Toyotas, Fords, Chryslers, Hondas, GM, and their component parts. Additionally, we have successfully represented people injured by defective helmets, bicycles, motorcycles, fuel pumps, brakes, car seats, seat belts, air bags, table saws, pumps, industrial machinery used in the workplace, barbeques, heating systems, and numerous other household and industrial products.

Often times, people involved in accidents do not examine the issues of defective product design, the risks inherent in the design, feasible alternatives, and appropriate warnings.  In a car accident, we examine whether the car was truly crashworthy – does it contain the appropriate crash protection.  In accidents where someone strikes a guardrail, people often do not consider the guardrail may be unsafe, installed improperly, or whether there is a contributing factor in the roadway design leading to a dangerous condition.  We have represented a number of people seriously injured in these types of accidents involving dangerous conditions of roads and crashworthy vehicles.  If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto crash, our attorneys at The Brandi Law Firm are available to consult with you.  Please contact our office at 800-481-1615 or email us.

The Brandi Law Firm Obtains $26.6 Million Verdict on Behalf of Victim of State’s Negligence

On May 14, 2015, a Santa Clara Superior Court jury found in favor of Maureen Clarke (Conservator of her daughter Talbot Clarke) and held the State of California responsible for the severe injuries to Talbot Clarke, awarding $26.6 million dollars in damages for the care of the brain injured former Santa Clara University student.

On January 21, 2011, Talbot, a second year student at Santa Clara University, was crossing the seven lanes of State Route 82 at its 110 foot wide signalized intersection with Railroad Avenue as she was leaving the main entrance of Santa Clara University to cross the street to board a train at the Caltrain station, when she was struck by a car in the far lane just after the light turned green.

Through extensive discovery and trial proceedings, Thomas Brandi and Dan Dell’Osso established the timing of the light was inadequate and that there was no notice by way of countdown timer or other device showing lack of time.  The jury found the State 95% at fault and the Plaintiff 5% at fault.

Toyota Recalls 636,331 Vehicles Due to Defective Air Bags in Three Separate Recalls

2005 Toyota Rav4

2005 Toyota Rav4

Toyota has announced three separate recalls, two of which are expansions or previous recalls, which involve air bag defects in older Toyota model vehicles.

The first recall involves 159,700 Toyota RAV4 vehicles manufactured May 13, 2003, to October 25, 2005 that are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag.  These RAV4s are from Toyota’s 2004 and 2005 model year lines.  The reason for the recall is that the driver side front air bag may be susceptible to moisture intrusion.  The moisture will damage the air bag, which will cause the inflator to rupture or the air bag to deploy abnormally.   The inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the driver or other occupants.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver’s frontal air bag, free of charge. Owners will be notified by mid-July 2015.  An interim notice will be mailed if parts are not available at that time. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.

The second recall involves 2003-2004 model year Tundra vehicles and 2004 model year Sequoia vehicles.  The total number of recalled vehicles is 176,631.  These vehicles were manufactured from March 18, 2003, to August 25, 2004.  The reason for the recall is a safety defect in the passenger side front air bag inflator.  The defect stems from excessive internal pressure causing the inflator to rupture upon deployment of the air bag.  This recall addresses both the passenger side frontal air bags that were originally installed in the vehicles, as well as replacement air bags that may have been installed as replacement service parts.  A replacement air bag may have been installed if a vehicle had been in a crash necessitating the replacement of the passenger side frontal air bag.

This recall is an expansion of 14V-312.  Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger air bag.  The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.  Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.

Finally, Toyota will recall 300,000 vehicles that affect six different vehicles models that were originally sold, or ever registered, in Florida, along the Gulf Coast, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Saipan and American Samoa.  The affected vehicles are the following:

Lexus Sc 2005-2007

Pontiac Vibe 2005-2007

Toyota Corolla 2005-2007

Toyota Corolla Matrix 2005-2007

Toyota Sequoia 2005-2007

Toyota Tundra 2005-2006

The problem is, once again, the inflators in the front passenger air bags are susceptible to rupture or abnormal deployment in the event of a crash necessitating the deployment of the front passenger air bag.

This recall is an expansion of recall 14V-655.  Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger side front air bag, free of charge.  Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.  Pontiac Vibe owners may contact GM at 1-800-762-2737.

Trek Bicycle Recalls 900,000 Bicycles due to Lever Defect

Trek Bicycle

Trek Bicycle, based in Waterloo, Wisconsin, will recall 900,000 bicycles equipped with front disc brakes because of a defect in the front quick release lever that opens past 180 degrees.  When the front quick release lever is left open or improperly adjusted, the quick release can come into contact with the front disc brake assembly, causing the front wheel to come to a sudden stop or separate from the bicycle.

The recall involves all models of Trek bicycles from model years 2000 through 2015 equipped with front disc brakes and a black or silver quick release lever on the front wheel hub that open a full 180 degrees.  Bicycles with front quick release levers that do not open a full 180 degrees from the closed position, are not included in this recall at this time.  There have been three incidents reported from this defect, and all have resulted in injuries.  The incidents resulted in one person being rendered a quadriplegic, facial injuries to another, and finally, an incident that resulted in a fractured wrist for the rider.  Trek advises that if you are unsure whether your bicycle has this combination, please take it to your local Trek retailer for a free inspection.  The bicycles were sold from September 1999 to April 2015.

 

Quick release lever caught in front disc

Quick release lever caught in front disc

Consumers should stop using the bicycles immediately and contact an authorized Trek retailer for free installation of a new quick release on the front wheel.  Trek will provide each owner who participates in the recall with a $20 coupon that is redeemable by December 31, 2015 toward any Bontrager merchandise.  The coupon has no cash value.

GM Recalls 87,063 Chevrolet Malibu Vehicles due to Roof Panel Defect

2015 Chevrolet Malibu

2015 Chevrolet Malibu

Due to a software defect in the slide or tilt function for the roof panel, General Motors will recall 87,063 Chevrolet Malibu vehicles that were manufactured from October 24, 2011 to March 5, 2015.  The models include the 2013, 2014, and 2015 Malibus.  These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS No. 18, which relate to Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems.  In the affected vehicles, the Slide or Tilt switch for the roof panel may not be adequately recessed to prevent the switch from inadvertently being pressed.  Thus, the roof panel switch may inadvertently be pressed and the roof panel may auto close unexpectedly.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the Body Control Module (BCM) software to remove auto-close feature for certain switch positions, free of charge.  The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.  Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM’s number for this recall is 15176.

Graco Fined $10 Million in Civil Penalties due to Untimely Notification of Defect

graco recall buckle

On March 20, 2015, the U.S. Transportation announced that Graco Children’s Products had been fined $10 million after the company failed to provide timely notification of a defect in their car seats regarding a defective buckle that resulted in more than 4 million car seats recalled.  The defect in the car seat stems from the unlatching mechanism in the harness buckle.  The buckle becomes stuck in a latched condition so that it cannot be opened by depressing the buckle’s release button.

Click here to read the full article: U.S. Transportation Secretary Foxx Announces $10 Million Civil Penalty Against Child Car Seat Manufacturer

Graco was fined $3 million in civil penalties for immediately payment, and then an addition $7 million is due from the company in 5 years unless Graco spends at least the same amount on new steps to improve child safety.  The company will be required to provide certification to the U.S. Transportation from an independent, third-party that it has met its cost obligations regarding safety.  If Graco fails to meet those requirements, it must pay the balance of the $10 million civil penalty.

Graco must now commit at least $7 million in safety performance requirements, which may include:

  • Improving its assessment and identification of potential safety defects.
  • Creating a scientifically tested program to increase effectiveness of child seat registration programs.
  • Revising its procedures for addressing consumer safety complaints and speed the recall of defective products.
  • Launching a campaign to disseminate safety messages to parents and caregivers by producing media products to incorporate in child safety campaigns.

Johnson and Johnson Again Leads Big Pharma in 2014 Revenues

J&J, who has seemingly survived the DePuy wars and is now facing down 22,000 vaginal mesh suits after losing mesh verdicts for its Ethicon product again leads the way in profits for Big Pharma in 2014, according to Tracy Staton writing in Fierce Pharma.

Click here to read the full article: The Top 15 Pharma Companies by 2014 Revenue

The top 15 list contains all of the traditional Big Pharma players: J&J, Novartis, Roche, Pfizer, Sanofi, Merck, GSK, AstraZeneca, Bayer, AbbVie, Lilly and Bristol-Myers Squibb, as well as some relative new comers: Gilead Sciences, Teva, and Amgen.  These 15 companies amassed 2014 sales of just under $527 billion.  J&J’s revenues increased by slightly more than $3 billion (4%), Roche grew by $1.3 billion (2.7%), Amgen was up by roughly $1.4 billion (7%), Bayer rose by $1.3 billion (5%), and AbbVie grew by almost $1.2 billion (5.8%).

J&J’s $74 billion was led by prescription drugs, which  brought in $32.4 billion for J&J last year, making pharma the biggest of its divisions.

Big PHARMA Spends $4.58 Billion in Direct to Consumer Ads in 2014

Whenever you watch the news, or a sporting event, does it ever seem like there are a lot of ads for drugs? For that special moment there are Cialis and Viagra and a host of other things that nice looking people suffering various maladies suddenly get better in a 30 to 60 second span while you are extolled to “Ask your Doctor about…”, while the fastest talking person you have ever heard rockets through risks and side effects.

Eli Lilly spent $272 million on ads for Cialis in 2014 while Pfizer spent $232 million on Viagra. Past years total spending, include 2013, was $3.83 billion and in 2012 $3.47 billion.

But it is not quite the $4.17 billion spent in 2010 or the $5.4 billion spent in 2006.

Pfizer, who led in spending in 2013, again led all drug companies spending an astounding $1.4 billion on ads in 2014.  In fact, Pfizer ranked among the top 10 of all advertisers, ahead of Toyota, Chrysler, Verizon, but behind L’Oreal.

According to a bulletin of the World Health Organization, “Direct-to-consumer advertising of drugs has been legal in the USA since 1985, but only really took off in 1997 when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) eased up on a rule obliging companies to offer a detailed list of side-effects in their infomercials (long format television commercials).  Since then, the industry has poured money into this form of promotion, spending just under $5 billion last year alone.  The only other country in the world that allows direct-to-consumer drug ads is New Zealand, a country of just over four million people.”

Click here to read the full article: Direct-to-Consumer Advertising Under Fire 

Clearly, direct-to-consumer ads work in driving sales.  But, is a 30 to 60 second format the best way to inform a consumer of what can really happen?  But the point of the ads is to create demand and history shows it creates that and huge profits too.

At The Brandi Law Firm, we help people throughout the country who have been harmed because of a defective drug or medical device such as Actos (Takata), Fosamax (Merck), DePuy (Johnson & Johnson), Lipitor (Pfizer), Yaz (Bayer), Avandia (GSK), and Vaginal Mesh (Johnson & Johnson).  Instead of treating all victims of defective drugs and medical devices the same we take a different, more personalized approach with a team of experienced defective drug attorneys and paralegals working for every client.  Our goal is to provide you with information about your legal options and to help you pursue compensation and holding these drug companies responsible for their dangerous actions.  Please contact The Brandi Law Firm today (1-800-481-1615 or email us) to talk with the experienced San Francisco defective drug attorneys.
