auto v. auto

defective product



the case

Plaintiffs brought a claim for the wrongful death of their son, who died after being involved in a high speed rear-end crash on the I-15 in San Bernardino County, California. As Decedent was travelling southbound on the I-15, traffic stopped and Decedent came to a full stop and activated his vehicle's emergency hazard lights.  Defendant Driver fell asleep while driving and rear-ended Decedent's vehicle at a high rate of speed. The spare tire jack in Decedent's vehicle came in contact with Decedent's head, causing severe head trauma and killing Decedent. Plaintiffs alleged that a host of defects in the design of the Decedent's vehicle directly caused the death of Decedent, who should have survived this incident but for the vehicle's defects.
