Ford Motor company sued by widow of accident victim

There have been many recalls issued involving vehicles in the last few months. Many of the recalls have been issued after serious injuries or death has occurred to drivers and their passengers. A woman in Texas has filed a lawsuit against Ford Motor Company alleging negligence by the automaker resulted in her husband's death in an accident on Jan. 21 of this year.

According to the lawsuit, the man was in South Dakota in a 2006 Ford F250 when he lost control of the truck. That resulted in the truck skidding, going through a ditch and rolling over. The man was wearing a his "three-point restraint system," according to the court documents; however, he still suffered injuries that proved to be fatal.

The woman's lawsuit alleges that the automaker manufactured an unreasonably dangerous and defective vehicles. There are also other omissions and negligent acts listed in the lawsuit.

The woman is seeking economic and non-economic damages, as well as court costs, for damages including loss of care, support, maintenance, advice, services, companionship, counsel, consortium and society. She alleges she suffered mental anguish as well.

With all of the recalls involving vehicles, injuries or deaths associated with malfunctioning or defective auto parts may result in many lawsuits against the vehicles' automakers. For those that are not sure if their vehicle had problems that resulted in such injuries or deaths, an experienced car accident attorney may be able to shed some light on the issues. You have a right to seek compensation from the automaker if the company's negligence caused your accident.
