Client:

Defendant Automobile Manufacturer

Outcome:

Dismissal in Favor of Defendant Affirmed

Synopsis:

The trial court’s decision barring plaintiff’s action seeking damages allegedly caused by a defective automobile was affirmed.

The court held that the sudden and traumatic injury in an automobile accident put plaintiff on notice that actionable conduct might be involved and, in that situation, the statute of limitations begins to run at the time of the accident.

The case was dismissed with prejudice.
