$2 Million for Brain Injury from Detective SUV and Icy Roadway
- Attorney: Harris Feldman
- Settlement: $2 Million
- Practice Areas: Defective Auto Parts, Product Liability, Car Accident, Brain Injury
Harris Feldman represented an off-duty police officer whose SUV lost control and rolled over on an icy patch of road. Harris’ investigation revealed two reasons for the injury. First, the section of roadway had been icy and the cause of several accidents over a multi-day period. However, despite the accidents, cleanup and warnings were inadequate. That dangerous roadway caused the SUV to lose control, but the vehicle’s design caused it to roll over. More importantly the roof structure of the vehicle collapsed during the rollover, exposing the driver’s head to the roadway.
After conducting testing on several vehicles with alternative designs and with the best experts in the field, Harris was able to settle the case with the vehicle’s manufacturer and the entity responsible for clearing the roadway of ice and snow for a combined $2,000,000.
