Jeep Grand Cherokee Rollover Accident


On April 7, 2002, plaintiffs’ decedent Meenakshi Doe, 50s, was operating a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee eastbound on I-10 when she lost control of the vehicle and it rolled over.

Doe’s survivors sued Daimler Chrysler Corporation, Auburn Hills, Mich., and Joe Kerley Lincoln-Mercury, San Jose, Calif., alleging that defects in the design and manufacture of the vehicle created an unreasonably dangerous propensity to rollover under normal and foreseeable operating conditions and events.

The plaintiffs alleged that the Jeep had improper geometry from a stability standpoint, as well as defective design and manufacture of its structure and occupant retention systems.


Doe suffered severe head injuries and died.

RESULT: Settlement was reached with Daimler Chrysler Corporation for a confidential amount.
