The collision was to the passenger’s side of the vehicle.
The violent nature of the collision caused the safety restraint to fail, wrapping around her left arm, traumatically amputating her left arm at the shoulder, and throwing the client across the interior of the vehicle, and out of the passenger side of the car. Attorney, Darryl B. Freedman, contended the safety restraint had a defective buckle, which released during the collision, causing the traumatic amputation of client’s left arm. Client underwent surgical procedures to close the wound as doctors were unable to reattach her arm. Client is permanently disfigured and disabled. Defendant automobile manufacturer hired numerous experts who contended that client was not wearing the safety restraint at the time of the collision.
