Claim of Defective Seats Brings Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Honda
Lawsuit claims Honda car allowed ejection of passenger who was wearing seatbelt in wrongful death case
A lawsuit has been filed in Texas against Honda Motor Co., Ltd. by the parents of a young woman who died in her 2005 Honda Civic in April of this year, reports the Southeast Texas Record.
The young woman died when she lost control of her car and skidded off the rain slick road. She hit several trees and even though she was wearing a seatbelt, she was killed when her seat collapsed and she was thrown into the back seat.
When you or a loved one gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, you should be able to count on the fact that it has been safely designed and is free from flaws that could result in serious injury, or even death. At Munley, Munley & Cartwright we have successfully handled cases involving injury or death caused by alleged defects such as automobiles, tractors and off-road vehicles.
The lawsuit claims the Honda Civic violated the principles of crashworthiness by failing to provide adequate restraint and failed to prevent ejection. It also claims the car was unreasonably dangerous and defective because the collapsing seat exposed the driver to the risk, hazard and danger of ejection. Honda is accused of not conducting adequate testing and proper engineering analysis.
