McDonald v. Ford Motor Company

Jul 25, 2007

CASE RESULTS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE.

Mother of a brain-damaged five-year-old girl asked for $25 million dollars from a jury in Pinellas County, Florida after alleging that either a defect in the Ford or Evenflo child restraint, or combination of both, failed to properly restrain Kaitlyn McDonald, who was represented by James E. Carter of Georgia and Hugh N. Smith of Florida, during a severe frontal accident. Trial started on July 9, 2007 and ended on July 25, 2007. The jury delivered a complete defense verdict as to both defendants.
