Jaguar recalls Land Rover drive shaft couplings

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on March 21, 2012

Jaguar Land Rover North America Incorporated has issued a recall for a specific model of the rear drive shaft couplings potentially installed as replacement parts in Discovery model sports utility vehicles. A manufacturing defect might cause the couplings to fail while the vehicle is in operation, endangering the lives of the driver and others on the road.

Approximately 180 couplings, manufactured between April and November of 2011, are affected by the recall. These parts bear the identification number TVF10001. They were used as replacement parts for some Discovery sports utility vehicles from model years 1995 to 1999, and Discovery II vehicles from model years 1999 to 2004, and potentially Land Rover Classics from 1995.

These defective drive shaft couplings can cause vibrations that if left unrepaired can cause the couplings to detach, separating the vehicle from the drive shaft and putting the vehicle in danger of a collision. Jaguar Land Rover will begin recalling the faulty drive shaft couplings on April 23. Consumers affected by the recall should contact Land Rover. The company will replace the defective rear drive shaft couplings at no cost to the consumer.

As a San Francisco car accident attorney, I certainly hope this corporation can effectively recall its faulty product before it endangers the lives of its customers, but  unfortunately this doesn’t always happen. If you have been harmed by a defective product, please consider contacting a San Francisco personal injury attorney.

Bon Hiver recalls snowboard bindings due to fall risk

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on March 20, 2012

Bon Hiver Incorporated of Chester, New York, has issued a voluntary recall for approximately 200 units of its snowboard bindings. These bindings can create a potential falling danger for the rider if the binding’s base plate breaks during use. Bon Hiver Freebase board bindings with the following model names and series numbers are affected by this recall: 11 Series – Assault or Infrared, 13 Series – Arsenal or Hellfire and 18 Series – Stealth or Storm. The series number can be found on the side of one of the footplates and next to the Bon Hiver logo on the back of the boot base. The bindings are packaged in pairs with each binding comprising a base plate and a boot base. The affected bindings, manufactured in China, were sold at various snowboard and ski shops as well as the manufacturer’s website between November and December of 2011. The company was first made aware of the problem when two consumers complained of base plate breakage. Owners of the affected bindings should discontinue their use and return them to the manufacturer for a replacement pair and a refund of 20 percent of the original price.

As a San Bernardino personal injury attorney, I certainly hope this product is safely recalled before anyone is hurt, but unfortunately this isn’t always the case. If you or someone you care about has been injured by a defective product, please consider hiring a Long Beach personal injury lawyer.
