Featured Case: Defective Vehicle Leads to Wrongful Death and Serious Injuries

Our clients’ daughter purchased a used vehicle in March of 2012. Later that same year, their daughter was driving with her daughter in the back seat when the vehicle for unknown reasons veered left and proceeded into oncoming traffic. As a result, their daughter’s vehicle was hit head on by an oncoming vehicle. Our clients’ daughter was fatally injured and their granddaughter sustained serious injuries. The automaker then released a safety recall in 2014 for a defective ignition switch on the make and model that our client’s daughter was driving. Our investigation of the accident led us to believe the vehicle had a defective ignition switch which caused the accident.

On behalf of our clients, we sued the automaker of the vehicle for designing and manufacturing a defective vehicle and for knowing about the defect for years without properly recalling the vehicle. We were able to settle the case on behalf of our client for a confidential amount.
