Are you looking at a rollover case? ATLA has information that will help.
For example, the ATLA link says that “[n]ow public General Motors internal documents show that the auto industry knew as early as 1966 that their roof design was so weak that in rollover accidents it crushed occupants to death. They could have fixed this defect for as little as $43.13.”
There is more information about rollover cases here.
Read information available at the Public Citizen site to learn about the inadequacies of the new rollover standards and issues related to the failure of saftey belts in the rollovers. This link will give you information about the efforts of Ford to keep the rollover problem out of the public eye.
Thanks to Bill at the Chicago Personal Injury Law Blog for reminding me about the information from ATLA.
