Our client, who was driving his car and wearing his seatbelt, suffered a severe thoracic spinal cord injury when his vehicle was rear ended. Rather than his seat protecting him and restraining his torso in place, he was propelled backwards into the rear seat of his car because the driver’s seatback had collapsed, and the head restraint became dislodged. This caused him to be projected into the rear seat, resulting in his injuries. Jaime Jackson Law successfully sued the vehicle manufacturer for the defective design of the driver’s seating system resulting in a seatback collapse spinal injury.

Earlier this year, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) was upheld as admissible evidence by the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania as a means of confirming a diagnosis of a traumatic brain injury.
Many new cars today come with safety features as standard. However, there are also many cars where additional safety features are optional add-ons at the buyer’s expense, or the manufacturer chooses not to include the crash avoidance technology as standard equipment. In this case our client’s vehicle, which was not equipped with a lane keeping system left its lane of travel, entered the breakdown lane, and exited the roadway where it then contacted a culvert. This caused the vehicle to roll over and catch fire. Our client died in the fire.
In Pennsylvania, before performing surgery, the surgeon must obtain the patient’s informed consent to the procedure. The patient’s consent must be “informed,” in other words, important information must be explained to the patient. This includes the risks, benefits, alternatives, and identity of the surgeon performing the procedure. In this case, our client died following a heart catheterization, which was performed by a surgeon who had never met the patient.
