Fiat-Chrysler Makes Outrageous Appeal
A judge recently ordered Fiat-Chrysler to pay a family $40 million in a wrongful death settlement. The suit revolved around the death of a four-year-old boy who was burned alive in a 2012 crash. Vehicle defects and a delayed recall were identified as contributing factors in the child’s unimaginably tragic death. Fiat-Chrysler is appealing this decision based on the outrageous claim that the boy’s suffering was “brief.”
Corporations have shown time and again that they prize profit over human life. Fighting a wrongful death settlement on the basis that “suffering was brief” may be incomprehensible to most people, but this type of defense is common in the corporate world. When you are going up against companies that are willing to go to extremes to cheat you out of fair compensation, you need an aggressive, experienced, and proven legal team on your side.
