Verdict Upheld Against Mitsubishi in Defective Seatbelt Wrongful Death Case
A 25-year old boy, Scott Laliberte, died after the seatbelt in a Mitsubishi Montero failed him during a rollover crash in 2004. He was a passenger in the vehicle on I-95 in Brevard County, FL. In 2008 a jury awarded the boy’s mother and father $11 million. The decision was appealed and in 2010, but the Clark Fountain legal team obtained a favorable, 2-1 ruling upholding the verdict from the Fourth District.
