In the wake of yesterday's Speaks v. Mazda Motor Corp. et al. verdict given by a Montana federal jury, Law360 spoke with Mazda trial team attorney, Michael Carey, who commented on the $7.3 million suit concerning the seat belt design of Mazda's 1994 Protege, owned by plaintiff, Incarnacion Speaks.
In the article, Michael stated, "[t]oday's verdict reflects the careful attention given to this case by the court and our jury. The 1994 Mazda Protege's front passenger restraint system is safe, well-designed, and convenient for occupants.”
