Injured man sues Honda for $55 million over car accident

Workplace accidents don't always happen at the workplace. What does that mean? Have you ever been driving to work and gotten hurt or been on a route to a job when getting into a motor vehicle accident? If so, then you were hurt on the clock and on the job in many cases. Your injuries should be covered by workers' compensation, but if they won't pay out, you may have other legal options, like seeking compensation in the way this man is.

Take for example this case involving a man from York, Pennsylvania, who was driving to work in Maryland. It's not clear if he'll receive any workers' compensation for the crash, but he has just won his legal case against Honda for what he believes was a defective seat belt.

The case went to court in Philadelphia after the man filed a complaint that the seat belt had been poorly designed and led to him hitting his head during a roll-over car accident. The 57-year-old man had previously been working at a construction company, but since the accident he's had to use a wheelchair. He can allegedly lift his arms slightly but has no use of his hands.

The man has four children and a wife, the news reports, and his nephew was in the passenger seat of the Honda at the time of the crash. Fortunately, his nephew was not injured. Honda has said that it will appeal the decision that granted $55.3 million in favor of the man, because it doesn't believe the vehicle had any safety defects. Honda claims that the three-point safety belt is a proven restraint system used by nearly every manufacturer.
