Illinois woman seeks $6M for defective Jeep

An Illinois woman has filed a products liability suit, alleging that the automaker knew that her car had a defect. While driving her mother’s Jeep Liberty, the car suddenly swerved into the right lane and then began to roll over. The driver was thrown from the vehicle and received massive injuries. These personal injuries, which included broken vertebrae and ribs, as well as liver and lung damage, were so severe that the woman was put into a chemically-induced coma. The accident was caused by a defective ball joint in the front suspension of the vehicle. The suit claims that Jeep knew of the defect when it sold the vehicle, relying on the fact that a product recall for Jeep Liberty ball joints was issued around the time of the automobile accident.
