Elick v. Ford Motor Company — One of our most significant trials in 2010 was Elick v Ford in the Western District of Pennsylvania, a case in which the plaintiff was rendered quadriplegic following the rollover of a 1994 Ford Explorer. The defense team successfully argued that the roof and seatbelt designs were safe and that the neck injury was not a direct result of the roof crush that occurred during impact; the jury returned a unanimous defense verdict for Ford.
