AUSTIN, TEXAS (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
The case, which was settled in the Eastern District of Texas Marshall Division federal court, case number 2:10-cv-00229-TJW, alleged product liability and negligence against the manufacturer. The petition alleges that the product liability and negligence caused the plaintiff to be injured in a rollover accident.
The plaintiff was injured when the popular SUV blew a tire, rolled over and partially ejected him from the car. The accident left him with a permanent and severe brain injury. The plaintiff was wearing a seat belt, but the vehicle’s occupant containment system failed to reasonably constrain him during the rollover, according to court documents.
The petition requested damages for medical expenses, loss of wage earning capacity, physical disfigurement, physical and mental impairment, physical pain and mental anguish.
“The car failed to restrain my client and his head hit the pavement,” Colley said. “Because of that, my client’s life has been changed permanently. He can’t do many of the things he used to love. The settlement in this case will help him to move forward after this accident.”
