$37.6M Verdict Against Honda for Defective Seat Belt

A Texas jury returned a $37.6 million verdict against Honda, finding that the seat belt system in a Honda minivan had a design defect that left a woman paralyzed after the vehicle was involved in a rollover crash.

Sarah Milburn was sitting in the third-row middle seat of a 2011 Honda Odyssey when the minivan was struck by another vehicle. After sustaining life-altering spinal injuries in the accident, Milburn filed a lawsuit against Honda, alleging that the seat belt in the minivan, a two-part system requiring the passenger to connect a shoulder strap on the van’s ceiling to the seat and then pull the belt across her hips and buckle it, was defective.
