Federal consumer agency: Major retailers sold recalled products

Even consumers who follow the news closely can't be aware of every product recall that impacts them and their family. People often assume that when companies or the government recall products due to safety issues, they are immediately removed from shelves and online inventories. While that's the way things should ideally work, it doesn't always happen.

Gender-reveal parties are getting more spectacular -- and risky

The blogger who is credited with inventing the concept of gender-reveal parties over a decade ago lamented recently that they've become a "dangerous trend." As the events have become increasingly more spectacular (largely because people are trying to create the next social media viral sensation), they've given rise to serious damage, injuries and at least one fatality.

CPSC seeks to get infant incline sleepers off the market

Amid growing concerns about the dangers of inclined sleepers for infants, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced action that would take many of the sleepers off the market. The announcement comes after nearly 60 infant deaths have been blamed on them.

Take care when driving around snowplows this winter

We love seeing snowplows when they're clearing the streets in and around our neighborhood so that we can get out after a massive snowstorm. However, we grumble when we're stuck behind one on the highway or another road.

Tips for staying safe on your snowmobile

You've ridden as a passenger on a friend's snowmobile once or twice, but this is going to be the winter you rent or buy your own. It's fun and exciting, but it can also be dangerous if you aren't careful -- or if others on the trail aren't. This past January, five snowmobilers were killed in one day throughout four counties here in Michigan.

Can you spot an impaired driver?

If you've been involved in a crash with a driver who was drunk or impaired by drugs, it may seem like that person came out of nowhere. Perhaps they ran a red light or merged into your lane without warning. They may have been speeding and crashed into you before you could get out of the way.

Backup cameras can't completely prevent backover accidents

Backup cameras (also referred to as rear visibility technology) have become increasingly common throughout the last decade. As of last year, they've been required on all new vehicles that weigh under 10,000 pounds. People with cars that don't have backup cameras can have them installed, typically on the license plate holder or the rear bumper.

Accidents can result in amputations

According to the consumer health care website WebMD, there are approximately 1.8 million amputees living in the United States. Their data reveals that amputations of the leg are the most common. Toe, hand, arm, finger and foot amputations follow close behind. While many of these result from illness, many people's limbs are amputated following accidents such as car crashes and fires.

When does drunk driving spike?

If you want to avoid serious injuries in an auto accident, you must understand the risks that you face. One of the greatest risks is that of encountering a drunk driver. Despite the fact that driving under the influence is illegal, we still lose thousands of people in these accidents every year.

Michigan team settles wrongful death lawsuit

Movies and television show dramatic murder trials that determine who is guilty and who is not, but only criminal law gets close to that type of theatrical quality. Even most criminal cases are decided through plea agreements rather than jury trials. Civil law deals with who is responsible to victims and their families for the consequences of wrongful deaths or injuries.
