Warshafsky Puts Automakers on Notice with Record Settlement
One-Car Auto Accident Case Requires Brain Injury Attorneys
18-year old Kathleen Wussow was returning home to Oconomowoc with her parents from a vacation trip to Florida when their near-new Cadillac suddenly went into an uncontrollable spin on the freeway and crashed. Kathleen, a promising young scholar with a 125 IQ which put her at the top of her class, suffered severe head damage, leaving her with permanent brain injury. After the accident, her IQ was tested at 95 and her memory was profoundly impaired.
Warshafsky’s Law Firm’s car accident attorneys took the case and successfully argued to the court that the prevailing assumption of the driver being to blame in one-car accidents is not always valid. Through diligent investigation, Warshafsky learned the Wussow’s Cadillac – with only 4,500 miles on it at the time of the accident – had a faulty control differential which caused the car to suddenly spin out on the freeway. After hearing Warshafsky’s compelling presentation of evidence, a jury concluded that the Wussow’s Cadillac rolled out of the General Motors plant so defective as to be unreasonably dangerous. Kathleen and her parents were awarded $3 million in damages for their ordeal. While that amount may seem substantial, consider that in inflation-adjusted dollars this settlement amount would be a little over 16 million dollars in 2014.
