Comedian Robert Schimmel was killed from injuries sustained in car accident in Phoenix last week.

The 60-year-old man was a passenger in a vehicle being driven by his 19-year-old daughter when she swerved her vehicle while avoiding another accident that occurred in front of her. As she swerved, she lost control of the vehicle that she was driving.

The man was pronounced dead and his daughter was taken to the hospital to be treated for her injuries but she is expected to recover. The comedian's 11-year-old son was also in the car, but he was uninjured in the accident.

44,000 defective helmets recalled by U.S. Army

by Administrator 25. August 2010 14:00

44,000 Advanced Combat Helmets were recalled by the U.S. Army following reports that the helmets failed to meet military standards and may not provide adequate ballistic protection. The helmets were produced by U.S. manufacturer ArmorSource, LLC, based in Hebron, Ohio. The Department of Justice is expected to investigate claims of defective material use, improper manufacturing processes, and faulty quality-testing on the part of the company.  

According to sources familiar with the recall, 20,000 helmets were issued by the U.S. Army, while the remaining 24,000 were issued to soldiers in the Air Force and Navy. The recall is expected to affect 4% of the 1.6 million combat helmets in the inventory of the U.S. Army. Soldiers are encouraged to check the inside of their helmets to identify the manufacturer's label, and they may have to remove some of the pads to check the label to see if they have been issued a recalled helmet. 

Soldiers depend on protective gear like helmets and body armor to protect them from harm. If a product is defective and fails to perform as expected, the individual may suffer serious bodily injury or death. If you would like to know more about the ArmorSource helmet recall, contact the Phoenix product liability attorneys of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C. at 800-763-0964 today.

Arizona plane crash rate higher than national number

by Administrator 16. August 2010 05:51

A recent fatal plane crash in Arizona has put Arizona on track to be higher than the national number of fatal plane crashes.

Since 2002, Arizona has been higher than the national average every year except for one, among non-military and non -commercial flights. The rate is found by measuring the number of deadly flights per 100,000 hours of flight. In 2008, Arizona was double the national rate with a number of 2.76 per 100,000 flight hours.

Arizona has had 75 general aviation crashes since 2005. Officials from the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association suggest that the hot temperature and treacherous terrains are a bad combination and may lead to the number of accidents in the area.

If you have been injured in a plane crash, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Phoenix aviation accident lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally P.L.C. by calling 800-763-0964 today.
