Good guys win: Hawaii Judge Finds for Plaintiff in Seatbelt Defect Case

A 26-year-old man paralyzed after a car crash on Hawaii Belt Road was awarded $16.5 million in his lawsuit against a Japanese seatbelt manufacturer. The lawsuit alleged the seatbelt failed to operate properly, which caused the driver to be thrown from the vehicle. The jury found Takata Corp. was negligent in the design of the defective seatbelt, used in the 1987 Pathfinder the man was driving.
