Law Offices of JSR
On August 12, 2016, Plaintiffs’ decedent was driving westbound on SR 12 near Byrnes Road in Walla Walla County. At the same time, a 1997 Cadillac Seville was being driven in the opposite direction on the same portion of road. The Cadillac swerved into the opposite lane and struck Plaintiff’s decedent head-on. The airbag in Plaintiffs’ decedent’s automobile failed to deploy due to a defective clockspring mechanism. Plaintiffs’ decedent passed away due to her injuries. She brought suit against the vehicle manufacturer as well as the driver of the Cadillac and his employers. Co-counsel Daniel Hess, Hess Law Office and Blaine Clooten, Clooten Law.
