Class Action Lawsuit on the Ford Motor Company
Recently, there has been a Ford motor company class action lawsuit that has been launched. If you have been injured as a result of a Ford accident, and you would like to seek monetary compensation from the offending Ford Company, this is a case that can be made to help with that goal. In some instances, victims are unable to pursue monetary damages on their own because the victim may have lost their job or suffered other kinds of hardship. But now, in a class action lawsuit, the plaintiff who will receive the monetary compensation is able to receive that money from not only the Ford Company, but also from all of the different subsidiary and divisions that make up the Ford brand.
In the past, victims of accidents such as this one who was not employed at the time of the accident had very little if any monetary leverage.
The Ford Motor Company knew that they could not pay everyone’s medical bills or put up the money that people would need to pay them. So, instead of doing anything about the situation, they agreed to a class action suit, and they collected a lot of money from people who were out of work and living in poverty. In many cases, victims who have this kind of case have been able to receive more than six figures dollars in settlements.
Now, the Ford Motor Company is being sued by a former employee who was injured while working for the Ford Motor Company.
According to the complaint that is filed in this case, the Ford Motor Company knew that the injuries that this victim received were severe and permanent, yet, they did nothing to correct the problems that they caused him. When this victim went to work for another company several months later, he was terminated, without warning. He claimed in his complaint that because he had asked to be re-trained on safety after the incident, he was denied this request, and now he is owed money for his suffering.
This case has become one of the largest of its type that has been filed in the past few years.
It is being handled in the Southern District of New York, which is one of the most expensive areas of the country to live in. The amount of money that is being sought in this case settlement will be substantial, but it is being handled as a class action, so that everyone who is involved in the lawsuit will receive fair representation. If the company is found to be at fault for the accident that caused this man to be disabled, they will be liable for not only the damages that he has sustained, but they will also be responsible for paying for his medical bills and for other lost time at work.
People who are involved in filing this case settlement are seeking money for lost wages, for their pain and suffering, for future medical expenses, and for the cost of their personal injury lawyer.
If the case can be proven that the Ford Motor Company was aware of these safety issues and did nothing about them, they could be forced to pay the victims for their pain and suffering, for their attorney fees, and for the cost of their medical treatment. They could be held responsible for what happened to this man, and possibly even be held responsible for other people that have been injured due to Ford’s negligence. These types of cases are usually worth millions of dollars, so they are certainly not something that should be overlooked.
There is a chance that the Ford Motor Company might settle out of court, but this would be unlikely. In most class action lawsuits there are usually settlements that reach into the tens of thousands of dollars, and this one might be no different. The main thing to keep in mind is that if you sign up for this class action lawsuit, you have no guarantee that you will actually win your case. You do not need a case to win, but it does help to have a strong case to present to your lawyer. In most cases these types of cases are settled out of court, and you will not receive any money unless your lawyers agree with the final amount. The lawyers usually make a small percentage of the money, and you can often walk away with that same amount without even having to go to court.
