August 2010 - Paraplegic’s case against Volvo Trucks settles for a significant undisclosed amount
    During a 2006 truck accident on I 71 in Fayette County, Ohio, Emily Jolly sustained significant injuries resulting in
    T-12 paralysis due to the faulty design of the Komfort Latch seatbelt she was wearing. The seatbelts in the truck
    were designed to let the driver and passenger set the amounts of slack themselves. Mrs. Jolly could put as much
    slack in the belt as she wanted and the cab contained no guidelines or warnings about how much slack she needed
    to keep her safe. As a result, her seatbelt was set too loose when the truck was forced off the Interstate by another
    car, veering into the median and rolling to a stop on nearby railroad tracks. This was not a catastrophic accident,
    and her husband who was driving only suffered minor injuries. However, because of the unsafe design of her
    seatbelt, Mrs. Jolly was not held in her seat properly and suffered severe spinal injuries which paralyzed her from
    the waist down. She now faces staggering medical bills for the rest of her life and will never live the same way
    again. She hired The Bodiford Law Group to represent her, and attorney Raymond Bodiford filed suit against Volvo
    Trucks, arguing that the Komfort Latch belt destroys the effectiveness of seatbelts.  We reached a confidential
    settlement before trial.
