In early July, a U.S. federal court ordered automaker Hyundai Motor Co. to pay a Virginia man and his family $14 million in damages after he sustained traumatic brain damage in a car accident 3 years ago.
The Federal court in Pulaski County ruled after an eight hours of deliberation that Zachary Duncan sustained brain damage due to the airbag in his 2008 Hyundai Tiburon failing to deploy in an accident. According to investigations into the accident, wrong placement of sensors caused the airbag to not deploy when the vehicle hit a tree.
A spokesman for the automaker said they disagree with the verdict and intend to file an appeal.
