 Description of the problemOn may 6, 2014, my wife [xxx] and i were driving home to wlliston, vermont from arlington, vermont. We were driving north at approximately 45 mph in our 2014 toyota corolla le. At the blinking light intersection of dorset street and cheese factory road, we made a right hand turn and drove east. It was a very dark night and i mis-judged the distance to the end of cheese factory road, where you could either turn left or right. At the intersection of cheese factory road and hinesburg road, there are no blinking lights or reflectors, and, in the darkness, i missed the stop sign, went straight through the intersection and crashed into a ditch on the other side of the road. Upon impact, my air bags deployed, and i felt only a sharp pain in my lower back. Immediately getting out of the car, i moved to the passenger side to find my wife out of the car on her hands and knees, crying out that she was unable to breathe. In the hospital [xxx] was diagnosed with a cracked sternum, an l 1 compression fracture in her back, 3 broken ribs and a broken left wrist. She spent 9 days in icu. It has only been in the last few weeks that my wife and i have had an in-depth discussion of the accident. [xxx] says that her seat belt did not hold her back, and that her chest hit the dash before her air bag deployed; yet, at impact she was able to see that my air bag had deployed before hers. This would probably account for the severity of her injuries and for the relatively minor injuries for mine. We are now aware that the 2013 toyota corolla had airbag issues and wonder if our 2014 toyota corolla might have similar problems. We have also been told by medical personnel that tremendous force would be required to crack a sternum, the kind of force that would come from hitting the dash board. For these reasons we are filing a claim. Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6).

  • What is Recall?

    A recall is when a product is removed from the market or a correction is made to the product because it is either defective or potentially harmful.
  • What is Failure?

    Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success. Product failure ranges from failure to sell the product to fracture of the product, in the worst cases leading to personal injury, the province of forensic engineering.

    Non-conformance of a car component with the specified requirements, or non-fulfillment of user expectations, including the safety aspects.
