PARTNER KEN LEVINSON AUTHORS LATEST EDITION OF LITIGATING MAJOR AUTOMOBILE INJURY AND DEATH CASES
CHICAGO — Levinson and Stefani founding partner Ken Levinson has co-authored the 2015-2016 edition of Litigating Major Automobile Injury and Death Cases, the newest volume of the reference litigation series published by AAJ Press/Thomson Reuters.
Part of an ongoing series, Litigating Major Automobile Injury and Death Cases is designed to help plaintiff’s attorneys build strong cases for their clients by highlighting real-life case studies related to Major Auto Injury and Death. The series features written discovery, depositions, medical and other expert witness testimony, and aspects of automobile jury trials, among dozens of other topics. The latest edition includes two high-profile cases that have dominated headlines in 2015, including:
- The legal requirements of air bag installation and a recent case involving Takata airbag inflators, which, in some instances, ignited with explosive force, causing metal shards to spray across the vehicle. Reports showed that eight people have been killed and at least 160 have been injured by exploding Takata air bags with more than 70 proposed class action lawsuits and dozens more cases filed in state courts.
- Ignition switch litigation due to negligent practices, most notably a recall of 10 million motor vehicles manufactured by General Motors that resulted in 114 deaths and 229 injuries. The overview contained here is intended to provide a basic understanding of the problems with the GM ignitions switches and GM’s knowledge of them, and to summarize the current state of litigation.
The two-volume series is co-authored by Thomas D’Amore, Karen Koehler, and Michael D. Freeman.
