$500,000 Settlement for Auto Product Liability / Wrongful Death

The firm represented the estate of a young woman who was killed when she lost control of her vehicle on a winding road. When the car was hit by a larger pickup truck heading in the opposite direction, her vehicle’s occupant compartment was severely crushed. The firm’s investigation revealed that what was supposed to be the strongest part of her vehicle’s safety cage completely tore apart and failed during this crash. The firm worked to show that the manufacturer inadequately tested and designed the car’s structure.
