Teresa Estep and Terry Estep v. Mike Ferrell Ford Lincoln-Mercury, Inc., et al.

Case Number:
33810
Case Date:
07-10-2008
Case Issue:

Defendants appeal from an adverse jury verdict in this vehicular crash worthiness case wherein plaintiff claimed that a 1999 Ford Ranger was defective because its occupant restraint system did not adequately protect plaintiff in a crash. Defendants raise various evidentiary and procedural trial errors, including the exclusion of any evidence about seatbelts, the presentation of opinion evidence based entirely upon speculation and conjecture by plaintiff's expert, and the failure to properly instruct the jury.
