Andy Payne Resolves Defect Vehicle Seat Case
Like seatbelts, the seat is an important part of restraining passengers in a crash. In this case, defects in the seat allowed the occupant to slide under the restraint and break her neck. As a result, PayneMitchell’s client was rendered a quadriplegic. PayneMitchell showed that the major vehicle manufacturer used cheap defective seats for rear seat passenger in order to save money. PayneMitchell’s efforts resulted in a substantial confidential settlement.
