Judge Upholds $40 Million Judgement for Family Afflicted by Jeep Fire
A Georgia appeals court has upheld an earlier judgement ordering Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to pay $40 million in legal damages to a family whose four-year-old boy was killed in a Jeep fire.
The Jeep recall includes 225,000 Wranglers from the 2016 – 2017 model years potentially affected by faulty airbag systems.
The California dealership that sold actor Anton Yelchin the Jeep that his family claims is responsible for the star’s death is vowing to fight the claim.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has closed its investigation of the Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system in more than 95,000 2014-15 Jeep Grand Cherokees.
After coming under fire because of the death of actor Anton Yelchin, Fiat Chrysler has been hit with two more lawsuits.
