A jury has blamed Ford for concealing dangers that could have prevented a 1998 Explorer rollover crash. According to the lawsuit, concerned Ford engineers wanted to change the design of the 1998 Explorer to stop rollovers. Ford refused and switched to computer simulated rollover tests instead. Ford will appeal the jury’s decision to award $151 million to an Alabama man who was paralyzed in a 2015 rollover crash.
A Texas man has been awarded $4.8 million dollars for losing his arm after his 1999 Ford Explorer rolled over in a crash. Ford was held liable for using a cheap tempered window glass that didn’t do what tempered glass is designed to do.
