Seatback Failure Causes Paraplegia

Request a Free Consultation

A married couple and their teenage daughter were driving to a girls softball game early one morning. While stopped at a stoplight, they were rear-ended by a pickup truck. The front passenger seat came loose from its anchoring bolts holding it to the floor, and the seatback broke rearwards, ejecting the woman into the rear seating compartment and resulting in a spinal cord injury and paraplegia. WKW engaged co-counsel with expertise in seatback failure cases. The case was settled in a second mediation prior to expert disclosures and depositions being taken due to informal full exchange of information between the parties.
