Automotive Defects

Tens of thousands of Americans are killed, and millions more are injured each year as a result of automobile accidents. Many of these deaths and injuries are preventable, having been allowed to occur as a result of defects in the design and manufacture of their car or light truck. The attorneys at Watts Guerra have brought lawsuits against the automobile manufacturers for than a more than a quarter century.

As a result of these lawsuits brought by Watts Guerra and others, fuel tanks have been moved to a safer location, airbags have been installed in the steering wheel, front instrument panel, side doors and roof rails, while door latches have been strengthened, roof structures made stronger and accident avoidance technology installed.

Before a case can be brought against an automobile manufacture, the vehicle must be secured and a thorough inspection of the vehicle conducted.

After a vehicle inspection has been performed, the accident scene itself must be photographed, surveyed and documented in detail. With the information collected at the scene and from the vehicle, an accident reconstruction is made possible. At Watts Guerra, our experts create detailed computerized animations, illustrating for the jury exactly what happened to our clients.

The lawyers at Watts Guerra have participated in some of the larger automotive defect verdicts in American history. In the mid-1990s, Mikal Watts led the nationwide effort against Chrysler for defects in its minivans’ rear liftgate latch, a defect costing many innocent people their lives. With two others, Watts organized the lawyers bringing hundreds of these cases nationwide, and took scores of depositions later used to achieve a verdict against Chrysler in South Carolina. While the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit later reversed this verdict, resulting in this client receiving nothing, the verdict itself pressured Chrysler to settle every other case in the country. Thus, the Jimenez verdict was critical to hundreds of grieving families achieving justice against Chrysler.

In 1998, Mikal Watts tried an automotive defect case against Chrysler, alleging that defects in the fuel system design of its Dodge pick-up caused a post-collision fuel-fed fire, and the consequent burn death of two individuals. Following a four-week trial, a jury returned a verdict finding Chrysler both negligent and grossly negligent, the case settled for $80,000,000 in damages. Our attorney’s fees were $5,293,333, our litigation expenses were $117,205, and net client recoveries were $9,468,672.

From 2000-2003, Mikal Watts assumed a leading role in prosecuting Ford Motor Company in cases involving the rollover of its top-heavy Ford Explorers following tire delamination of the Firestone tires equipped on such vehicles. The lawyers of Watts Guerra settled more than 100 lawsuits against the auto manufacturers alleging excessive rollover propensity and a lack of rollover crashworthiness.

In February, 2005, Watts Guerra partners Mikal Watts, Frank Guerra and William Maiberger tried a case alleging that the deaths of two teenagers following their ejection from a Ford Explorer SUV resulted from defects in the vehicle’s occupant containment system. The jury agreed, finding Ford both negligent and grossly negligent, and awarding damages of $31,000,000. Our attorney’s fees were $800,000, our litigation expenses were $146,823, and net client recoveries were $1,053,177.

In August, 2005, Mikal Watts tried a case against Ford alleging that a 10-year-old boy’s death following his ejection from a Ford Expedition resulted from defects in the vehicle’s occupant containment system. The jury agreed, finding Ford both negligent and grossly negligent, and awarding damages of more than $42,000,000. Our attorney’s fees were $4,019,000, our litigation expenses were $690,635, and the net client recoveries were $5,330,365.

Later in that same August of 2005, Mikal Watts tried a case against Ford alleging that a 16-year-old girl’s death following her ejection from a F-150 pick-up resulted from defects in the vehicle’s occupant containment system. The jury agreed, finding Ford both negligent and grossly negligent, and awarding damages of more than $30,000,000. Our attorney’s fees were $1,600,000, our litigation expenses were $542,776, and net client recoveries were $4,209,830.

At Watts Guerra, we have filed, litigated and successfully resolved hundreds of cases alleging automotive defects against the automobile manufacturers, and remain ready, willing and able to do the same for you.
