A Ford Motor Company lawsuit can have many implications for the victim and the Ford Motor Company. The more you know about what you can do to receive compensation for your injuries and/or damages, the better off you will be.
A Ford Motor Company lawsuit occurs when one of their new vehicles causes an injury or damages to another person, animal, or object.
In most of these cases, the victims were operating vehicles other than new vehicles at the time of the accident. An example of such a lawsuit is the case against Ford where the front bumper of one of their new vehicles caused the death of an infant child. The manufacturer, Ford, was aware of this issue for months before it caused the tragic death of the child.
Several other recent Ford Motor Company claims include:
the wrongful death of an elderly woman who was riding in a vehicle that was involved in an accident with an asbestos-related machine; the filing of a personal injury claim for an individual who was wrongfully killed in an auto accident caused by the Ford Motor Company’s own brake fluid; and the filing of a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of a woman who became trapped and crushed inside her car when it slid on a badly maintained road in California. Additionally, in several of these lawsuits, Ford Motor Company was aware of numerous safety concerns regarding their vehicles. One such safety issue was the “staggering” tires that were being used by Ford vehicles throughout the world. These tires pose a dangerous and potentially lethal hazard to drivers. These lawsuits ultimately resulted in Ford paying the costs of replacing all of the tires on these vehicles.
Additionally, many of these lawsuits resulted in settlements.
For example, in the case against Ford Motor Company related to the brakes defect, the judge found that the company had liability insurance coverage for the defective brake mechanism. As a result of this finding, Ford Motor Company was required to pay the costs of correcting this issue as well as any related disease that resulted from the defective brake mechanism. Other related disease settlements resulted from accidents in which the Ford Motor Company was found to be responsible.
There are several Ford Motor Company lawsuits that have been developed due to the effects of defective products.
However, all of these lawsuits ultimately failed due to the inability of Ford to provide evidence related to the defect or the effect of the product on a consumer. It is important to note that in each of these lawsuits, there were numerous issues related to the evidence that was developed by Ford Motor Company during the discovery process. In many instances, it was found that the discovery process had in fact ignored evidence related to the potential risks associated with the Ford vehicles.
These types of lawsuits have resulted in huge financial damages as well as substantial medical bills for the passengers and drivers that were involved in various accidents that occurred around the globe.
If you or someone that you know has been involved in an accident where the Ford Motor Company vehicle was responsible, you may be able to seek compensation based upon the extent of injuries as well as your inability to return to work. Alternatively, if you have been the victim of a fatal cruise control fires that resulted in the death of a loved one, you may be able to seek monetary damages based upon the degree of loss.
