Porsche facing wrongful death lawsuit from father of deceased actor

German automaker Porsche is facing a lawsuit in which the father of deceased actor Paul Walker claimed his son wrongfully died in the fiery Los Angeles car accident in 2013, according to a NBC News report.

According to the November 25 lawsuit filed by the legal counsel of Paul Walker III, the Porsche Carrera GT 2005 occupied by the late actor at the time of his death did not have sufficient “safety features.” The “Fast and Furious” movie actor died when the vehicle he was riding in collided with a lamppost and a tree on November 30, 2013. Professional race driver Roger Rodas, who was driving at the time, also died in the crash. The lawsuit also alleged that the seat belt restraining Walker contributed to his injuries and prevented him from surviving the accident.

1.4M GM vehicles that may catch fire recalled again

American automaker General Motors (GM) recently issued its third recall of about 1.4 million vehicles due to fire risks that were not corrected in previous recalls.

According to GM, the third recall became a possibility after the company received reports that the recalls in 2008 and in 2009 both failed to address the oil leak issue that was causing some vehicles to catch fire. Of the vehicles that have already undergone repairs during previous recalls, 1,300 reportedly caught fire.

The affected vehicles may catch fire if the oil from the valve cover gasket leaks onto the hot components of the engine. GM is aware of 19 complaints of minor injuries link to the issue, and in 2008 they acknowledge that 267 vehicles caught fire and that 17 of these incidents resulted to structural damage.

When you consider how much trust you put in your vehicle to carry you and your family safely throughout your days, it can be incredibly frightening to learn that such a serious defect exists. If you have been impacted by a defective car, contact the product liability attorneys of the LaMarca Law Group, P.C., by calling (877) 327-2600 today.



Child hurt in Council Bluffs railway accident

A little girl was recently hospitalized with injuries after a train struck her in Council Bluffs, Iowa, an article reported on October 18.

Information coming from the Council Bluffs Police revealed that they were notified of a railway accident that happened at the vicinity of 3rd Avenue and 14th Street at around 12:30 p.m. Responding officers found a child, only identified as a 9-year-old girl, on the rail tracks with a laceration on her forehead.

Apparently, the girl was attempting to cross the tracks after a train passed but was unaware of a second train following close behind the first, preliminary investigations revealed. It is unclear whether or not she saw or heard warnings of the second train’s presence.

The girl underwent surgery for her fractured skull and is currently in stable condition at the Omaha trauma center.

Teen seriously injured in texting while driving accident

A 16-year-old has recently suffered serious injuries in Des Moines in a car accident that was likely caused by texting and driving.

According to reports the two-vehicle accident happened on Oct. 5 at the intersection of Lacona Avenue and Southeast 14th Street. The 16-year-old driver was t-boned in his blue Chevrolet Cavalier by a pick-up truck. Off-duty Polk County Sheriff’s Office sergeant, Dan Charleston, happened to be in the area and responded to the scene of the accident. As Charleston peaked into the Cavalier, he found a young male driver clearly unconscious and with blood on his face.

The teenager who was believed to be in critical condition was transported to Mercy Hospital.
