problem #3

  • 51,887 miles


The contact owned a 2014 Toyota Corolla. While driving 60 mph in inclement weather, the vehicle hydroplaned and crashed into a metal guardrail. The passenger side curtain air bags deployed; however, the front driver side air bag and seat belt pretensioner failed to operate as intended. The contact sustained a bulging disk in the back, which required medical attention. A police report was filed. The vehicle was destroyed and towed to an independent mechanic. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 51,887.

The Corolla moving at about 35 mph on a 3 lane road hit another car that was stopped at a yellow blinking light in the rear, the Corolla's impact was on the left front side first so on a slight angle to the rear of the stopped car so it did not hit squarely. The seat belt did not function and the female driver of the Corolla hit her head on the window and her right knee hit the under dash, her weight is about 110 lbs. And small body frame. The air bags also did not function there is around $9000 damage to the car so this was not just a small collision. I have attached a pdf file with photos.

Corolla 4-cyl

On 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).
