SIMPSON v. VOLKSWAGEN

This case involved a 28-year-old man who was rendered an incomplete quadriplegic and suffered severe brain damage as a result of having been involved in a solo automobile accident. Mr. Simpson was in a coma for eight weeks, underwent five brain surgeries, and was projected to have future medical expenses in excess of $2,800,000. Mr. Simpson contended that he was ejected from his 1969 Volkswagen as a result of a defectively designed door latch.

The case was tried against the Law Offices of Toxey Hall Smith, a nationally renowned product liability plaintiffs’ lawyer. A downtown Los Angeles jury returned a defense verdict after a 3-week trial.
