Auto Repair Negligence Cases

Failure to Diagnose Defective Suspension: Quadriplegia and Wrongful Death. (Youngstown, Ohio). Confidential Settlement provided for more comprehensive medical care, end stage care, and emotional closure for surviving spouse of thirty years.

Extensive litigation demonstrated that the auto dealership had failed to diagnose and repair a defective right -rear trailing arm despite evidence of damage. Notably, the new car was unable to be properly aligned and the alignment test showed the right rear tire was out of specifications.  Despite the test results and customer complaints, the auto dealership maintained the car was safe to drive and did not require additional work.  However,  the auto dealer never warned the driver of the issue. It was then proven that the damage to the trailing arm was a significant contributing factor is causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle in a one car accident.  Following discovery and mediation, the case was resolved for a confidential seven figure amount.
