Kazan Law partners Joe Satterley and Justin Bosl fought a battle against Ford Motor Company late last year that resulted in a $6,825,000 victory in favor of our clients Patrick and Sharon Scott. The Hayward, California jury found Ford Motor Company guilty of designing defective products, failure to warn of these product defects, and negligence, all related to motor vehicle braking systems.
Mr. Scott had spent his career as an auto mechanic, and owned three separate service stations during his years in the San Francisco Bay Area and Napa Valley. Sadly, like most of our clients who call on us for help, his career came to an abrupt halt at the age of 68 when he was diagnosed with mesothelioma as a result of exposure to asbestos. Mr. Scott was unaware that he was exposed to the deadly toxic material, but the evidence Joe Satterley and Justin Bosl presented at trial, proved that Ford well knew that the asbestos in its automotive parts and vehicles could kill as early as 1948.
While no amount of money could replace what the Scott family has lost, I am pleased that our mesothelioma law firm was able to bring them justice. Watch as Joe Satterley shares his perspective on the case against Ford Motor Company and the jury trial which lasted for three months.
