Automotive Product Defect Cases - Nissan Recalls

Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) has recalled certain model year 2014 Nissan LEAF vehicles that were manufactured within these dates: April 15, 2014 through April 24, 2014. The problem with the vehicle associated with this recall is the motor control circuit board and the inverter may fail that could cause the vehicle to suddenly shut down. Because of the recall and its apparent defect, Nissan has reported that unexpectedly, the vehicle could shut down greatly increasing the risk of a crash.

Nissan has begun to notify owners and dealers of this problem with the inverter and will replace the inverter free of charge for Illinois Nissan owners and lessees. The recall is nationwide and repair is likewise applicable to any deal in the United States and Canada.

The recall was expected to begin on July 7, 2014.

In addition, the 2014 Nissan LEAF was manufactured with missing welds which could affect the vehicle’s ability to withstand a crash. With the stability of the vehicle in question, there is increased risk of severe injury or death to Nissan occupants.

This is a different issue and the announcement of the recall regarding the vehicle’s integrity was made on April 16, 2014. The recall was started in mid-June 2014.

Nissan announced recalls for its models, LEAF, Altima, Pathfinder and Sentra for the model year 2013 whose defect is if an adult occupant is in the passenger seat, the seat sensor won’t recognize the passenger’s presence and the airbag would be deactivated and not deploy in a crash. That recall announcement was made March 25, 2014. The recall began on April 14, 2014. Owners of these vehicles should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.

“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
★★★★★
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
