Takata airbag recall: cost concerns took priority over safety?

You may be dating yourself if you remember the Ford Pinto. It was an economy car produced in the early 1970s that turned out to have a serious defect: when involved in a collision in which it was struck from behind, problems with its fuel system design meant that gas tank tended to explode. What made the Pinto legendary in the annals of product liability was that it turned out that the manufacturer knew of the defect, but chose to do nothing to correct it based on a simple cost calculation: the amount of money that the company expected to pay out in personal injury and wrongful death damages connected with Pinto gas tank fires was significantly less than it believed it would cost to recall the cars and fix the problem.

Teenager suffers brain injury in parking lot

Young people often do not consider the consequences of their actions, and sometimes it is others who are affected the most. A 15-year-old girl sustained serious head injuries when she fell from the back of an SUV in Abilene. The SUV was in motion in a supermarket parking lot. After police and EMTs were called, she was rushed to Hendrick Medical Center. There, the doctors stated she was in critical condition. She was later transferred to a hospital in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for further treatment.
