$55 Million Settlement Against Honda in Rollover Accident Suit

A Philadelphia jury has finalized the order for Honda to pay $55.3 million to a Pennsylvania man, Carlos Martinez, that was left paralyzed after a rollover accident. While Honda claims that they will appeal the suit, Martinez's attorney argued against Honda saying that a faulty seatbelt design caused permanent injuries.

While driving in his Acura Integra, Martinez had a tire blow out which caused him to lose control of the vehicle. This sent the car into a rollover and the seatbelt, which Martinez was wearing, didn't stop Martinez's head from hitting the roof while the car rolled. The impact on his head and neck is believed to have caused his paralysis.

Martinez's attorney argued saying that Honda owed damages for the following:

  1. Personal injury
  2. Faulty design of the seatbelt
  3. Pain and suffering
  4. Future medical expenses
  5. Loss of consortium
  6. Loss of earnings
