It has been a year of recalls in the automobile industry. First Toyota and now General Motors Co is recalling 13,680 cars globally. The reason for the recall is to address potential problems with improperly tightened suspension bolts.  Other problems include faulty airbags, according to the company. The U.S. safety regulators have also filed documents involving this recall. The issues have not resulted in any physical accidents or injuries, according to General Motors.

GM is recalling 8,519 2013 model year Chevrolet Malibu sedans in the United States. This is for problems involving the suspension. The problem is that one or more rear suspension bolts may not have been tightened properly. As you can imagine, this could lead to a driver losing control of the vehicle. This would increase the risk of a unnecessary car accident, according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

General Motors is recalling another 1,060 of the cars in various other countries, which include Canada, Mexico and overseas, General Motors said. Owners should look for obnoxious noises and minor handling issues in vehicle, NHTSA claimed. General Motors has just begun to inform the vehicle owners.

General Motors also is recalling 3,896 2012 model year Buick Verano, and Chevy Camaro, Cruze and Sonic cars in the United States. But, this is for a different problem. This recall is being administered to address potentially faulty airbags, according to the NHTSA. An additional 205 cars were affected by the recall in Canada, General Motors said.

The driver side front airbag has a shorting bar that may intermittently contact the airbag terminals. This is a problem because there is a possibility that this will cause the airbags not to deploy. This will increase the risk of injuries, according to the NHTSA. The recall is expected to begin on February 13 of this year. General Motors is claiming that this recall is an expansion of one from last fall.

If you or a loved one have been in an accident due to a faulty product it is necessary to seek legal advice. It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to compensate the pain and suffering that you have suffered. An Accident Attorney will make sure that you receive every cent that you deserve.

Crime Up in L.A. Area, Irvine Named Safest City in U.S.

Depending on the area an individual lives in, crime rates can vary. In fairly recent reports, the city of Irvine, located in Orange County, was named the safest city in the United States for the eighth year in a row. A resident living in Irvine may experience less circumstances involving criminal behavior as compared to someone living in Los Angeles. Los Angeles County recently had a significant increase of crime. For those living in a more crime-prone area, it will be smart to research the amount of criminal activities that occur, avoiding and decreasing the chances of personal injury or attack.

According to the LA Time’s crime reports database, crime rates are up in the Los Angeles county area. Twelve L.A. neighborhoods reported an increase in crime in the week of June 2 – June 8. Six of the neighborhoods saw an increase in violent crime and six other neighborhoods had an increase in property crimes.

Crimes reported in the LA area included aggravated assault, theft, robbery, grand theft auto, and a few others. The LA Time’s crime reports database covers about 200 neighborhoods around the L.A. area. The database keeps track of both short-term and long-term statistics on different L.A. neighborhoods.

The neighborhood of Lake Balboa, which normally has an average of 0.8 violent crimes a week reported, saw four instances of violent crime in the June 2 – June 8 week. Downtown L.A. had the highest number of reports in one week, totaling 31 violent crimes. However, downtown has an average of 21.5 violent crimes reported a week.

In the week of June 2 – June 8, Lake Balboa had four violent crimes and seven property crimes. That averages to about 4.2 crimes for every 10,000 people. In the downtown area, there were 31 violent crimes and 71 property crimes reported. That averages to 4.9 crimes for every 10,000 people. Most of the crimes in downtown LA involved theft.

For property crimes, the Pacific Palisades neighborhood had 14 instances reported when it normally has an average of 5.8 per week. Central-Alameda had 33 property crimes, up from its weekly average of 16.8.

The type of neighborhood an individual lives in can greatly determine the kinds of crime he or she will experience. Take into account the city of Irvine; as the safest city in the U.S., the chances of an Irvine resident being robbed or assaulted is very slim in comparison to a resident living in L.A. But whichever city a person resides in, chances of accidents, personal injury, and crime will never go away. It is important to know that there are Los Angeles personal injury attorneys who can help individuals deal with the aftermath of a home break-in or with any personal injuries received from assault.
