Amputee Sues BMW Over Dangers Of Soft-Close Doors

 Wednesday, April 4, 2018

BMW soft-close automatic doors are allegedly to blame for a New York man losing his $250,000 per year income as a self-employed software engineer for his own company. The lawsuit alleges BMW deceives the public by hiding the serious dangers of the soft-close automatic doors by advertising the alleged benefits of the systems. According to BMW: "In tight parking spaces or whenever a gentle closing of the door is appreciated, soft close automatic provides a helping hand: simply push the door until it is almost closed. When the door is within approximately 6 mm of the lock, a sensor activates an electric motor that pulls the door firmly and quietly closed and secures it."
