Paralyzed Woman Wins $23.4M Against Ford Motor Company

ABC News reports a woman has been awarded $24.3 million by a California jury against Ford Motor Company following a 2007 accident which left her a quadriplegic.

The woman lost control of her Ford Explorer when the tread separated from her rear tire causing her car to roll three times down an embankment. She was left with both of her legs and most of her body paralyzed.

The lawsuit alleged flaws in the 1997 Explorer’s design caused it to lose control when the tire treads separated. Ford argued the accident was caused by worn-out tires.

The jury returned a unanimous verdict for the plaintiff.
