Confidential Settlement Obtained in Ford Lap Belt Case | Martin & Jones, PLLC | Raleigh, North Carolina

www.martinandjones.com [cached]

After a six-week and one day jury trial in Nashville, North Carolina, Hunt Willis of the Raleigh law firm Martin & Jones along with co-counsel Kent Emison of Langdon & Emison, reached a confidential settlement with Ford Motor Co. on behalf of a sixteen-year-old boy who suffered life-altering injuries from the two-point lap belt he was wearing in a car accident that rendered him paraplegic.
Emison told the jury the child's injuries were directly caused by the defective lap belt and that if he had been wearing a lap-shoulder belt, his injuries would not have been as severe. Numerous documents showed the extent of Ford's knowledge of the defect since the 1960s. In 1967, Ford's biomechanics department manager wrote a paper that clearly stated lap belts provide no upper body support, allowing the body to jackknife over the belt and causing severe spinal injuries. "Ford knew for decades that lap belts were dangerous and caused severe injuries, yet the automaker refused to install safer seatbelts in all seating positions, knowing that for as little as $12 per vehicle, children like our client could have been kept safe from harm," said Emison.
