Defective auto part in Ram trucks sparks recall

For many in Montana, a pickup truck is a necessity of daily living. They use these vehicles for work and for recreation and expect it to work hard and be of top quality for all the paces it is put through. However, as recent history has shown, there are times when auto manufacturers make mistakes when putting the vehicle together. When there are auto defects, people might not be aware of them before it is too late. If there was an accident with injuries or consumer death and an auto recall was made, it is imperative to know whether the pieces fit and a lawsuit can be filed.

Study shows wide ranging beliefs about texting and driving

It is not unusual to see drivers in Montana and across the U.S. looking down while they are behind the wheel. Obviously, they are frequently looking at their smartphones or some other device under the belief that they can multitask and do so safely. Texting and driving is just part of being a distracted driver and it is inherently dangerous. Studies are often done to try and explain this behavior. One study from Progressive Insurance came up with interesting results as to the mentality of people who text and drive. This can be beneficial after there has been an auto accident and the accident investigation shows that it happened because of a distracted driver.

Fatal car crash claims life of pedestrian

Montana pedestrians must always be vigilant of potential dangers on the road. This is especially true in the early morning hours when it can be difficult to see. At this time of day, there is a chance that drivers may be drowsy or under the influence, and distraction can be a possible risk. When there is a crash between a car and a pedestrian, the lack of protection that pedestrians have can easily lead to the crash turning into a fatal accident. Those who have suffered the loss of a loved one in this type of accident should know what steps to take after it has happened.

Design defect in pacemakers makes them vulnerable to hackers

Products that are needed to function in everyday life are expected to be safe and trustworthy. However, Montana residents must be aware that there are times when these products - foods, automobiles, prescription medicines and even medical implants - might be dangerous in some circumstances. Even health products, like prescription drugs, do not elicit the same worries as an item that was implanted inside a person. It is in these circumstances that a medical issue or even death must be fully investigated to determine if a product liability case should be filed based on product defect claims.
