The firm recently obtained a partial settlement of $1.225 million for a 25-year-old woman seriously injured when her brand-new Ford sport utility vehicle rolled over in an accident.
Her Ford Explorer was hit from the side by a Ford Taurus driven by a retired professional. When her SUV slid and overturned, she was ejected. She is paralyzed below the waist and confined to a wheelchair.
The firm is pursuing a rollover claim against Ford Motor Company. The firm recently purchased an identical vehicle for purposes of conducting a thorough investigation into the safety of the Ford Explorer, including actual rollover testing.
