Toyota announces second phase of airbag recall

More than 40 million vehicles have been recalled in Montana and around the country in recent years because of potentially deadly problems with airbags supplied by the Japanese parts manufacturer Takata. Toyota initially addressed the issue by replacing faulty Takata airbags in more than 900,000 Lexus, Scion and Toyota models with new Takata airbags. The carmaker has now announced that it is ready to implement the second phase of its airbag remedy by replacing the new Takata airbags with airbags supplied by a different vendor.

Car with highest safety rating is deemed the most crash-prone

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has given the Subaru Crosstrek its highest possible safety rating. The Crosstrek, as many drivers in Montana know, boasts great fuel efficiency and is considered relatively inexpensive. However, a recent survey from the auto insurance comparison site Insurify has discovered that the Crosstrek is the most accident-prone vehicle on American roads.

Mistakes by truckers lead to devastating injuries

If you travel on Montana's roads and highways, chances are good you will encounter a big rig. You may put out of your mind the danger of sharing the road with one of these behemoths, but you can't deny their intimidating presence. A tractor-trailer may weigh 20 times the weight of your vehicle. This means they take longer to stop and are more difficult to control in adverse conditions.

Product testing is critical to protecting consumers

When creators of new products in Montana are preparing to release a new prototype to their consumers, there are many ways they could go about testing their product. In the most effective scenario, businesses will take adequate time and resources to identify potential problems and address them before releasing them to the public. Additionally, they will run multiple tests to guarantee that the product they are offering is safe, reliable and functional. 

Amidst opioid crisis, Johnson & Johnson seek solution

Despite the best efforts of companies to prevent their products from causing injury or inconvenience to their consumers, there are times when products malfunction or do not perform the way they were intended and put users at risk of injury or death. Preventing these types of errors from happening to people in Montana and elsewhere requires companies to implement procedures for product testing that are designed to catch potential errors and hazards before they threaten end-users. 

Traumatic brain injuries in children

Car accidents and falls may lead to traumatic brain injury diagnoses for many Montana residents of all ages. Children may experience more severe TBI symptoms that have long-term health consequences.
