Lengthy lane closures are typical after head-on collisions

In the aftermath of violent crashes, investigators could require several hours to sort out what happened and arrange for the site to be cleared of the wreckage. This means that travel could be restricted on the affected portions of Missouri highways. Motorists could be detoured for long periods after head-on collisions on the interstates since the speeds at which these accidents occur could cause an inordinate amount of devastation for investigators to sift through and clean up before the road can be reopened.

Toyota Camry and Prius lawsuits may increase with new recall

Not long ago, Toyota recalled some of its Camrys and Highlanders due to software and power steering issues. From April 2003 to December 2008, Toyota has had to recall close to three million vehicles, which included 24 different models, due to airbag concerns. Now, there is a recall out for software issues with the Prius. With the combination of all of these issues and recalls, the chance for further Toyota Camry and Prius lawsuits here in the state of Missouri increases.

Leaf blowers may cause lacerations, defective power tool claims

For those who suffer serious injuries, this is when there may be potential for defective power tool claims to be brought against the manufacturer or distributors of the power tool.

Toyota Camry and Prius lawsuits continue in Missouri

The number of victims of motor vehicle defects before a safety recall is issued is hard to calculate. Everyday, Missouri men and women count on their vehicle to transport them safely to and from their destinations. However, when an air bag fails to deploy or a seat belt latch breaks, a minor collision can become a catastrophic event resulting in serious injury or death. Over the years, there has been an increase in Toyota Camry and Prius lawsuits due to defective motor vehicle operation. In one related event, a man recently got into an accident after his Toyota Camry supposedly accelerated voluntarily while his foot was on the brakes.
