Teen’s Death Related to Delayed Recall of Defective Seat Belts in Kia Autos, Jury Finds

Posted on Aug 16, 2011
In his latest post to our VA-NC Wrongful Death Lawyers blog site, my colleague Rick Shapiro applauds a jury's decision to award a family $40 million after their 16-year-old daughter lost her life in a single-vehicle accident. Evidence presented at trial convinced the jurors that the teen was wearing her seat belt while driving her 1999 Kia Sephia. The problem was that Kia knew the seat belt buckle could fail and should have recalled the car for repairs before the fatal crash occurred.
