Honda Fined $70 Million
Honda has been fined $70 million by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for under-reporting accident data related to vehicle defects over the past 11 years. According to the complaint, Honda failed to report over 1,700 claims of death or serious injury that may have been related to specific vehicle defects – an action that prevented proper steps from being taken to prevent future injury.
Honda is not alone in its failure to report vehicle defects to appropriate agencies. 2014 saw several major auto manufacturers face similar fines and punishments, yet still the problem persists. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed by a defective vehicle, the Vermont personal injury attorneys at Van Dorn & Curtiss will hold the negligent party accountable and fight tooth and nail to secure every penny you deserve.
Failure to report accidents is exceedingly irresponsible and shows a great disregard for public safety. If you have suffered damages due to the negligence of an auto manufacturer, we can take your case as far as necessary to see that justice is served.
