Individuals are suing Ford Motor Company in a class action lawsuit after claiming that their vehicles were prone to sudden acceleration incidents that caused them both damages and injuries.
Timothy Hill, Ricky Vasquez, Harold Schade, Debra Schade, Edward Numrych, Frank Henry, Alberta Tinsley-Talabi, Audrey Ann larkin, Thomas Hunt, Frantz Charles, Arlie Hamilton, Gary Surgeon, Bridgette Surgeon, Patricia Mae Camp, Jessica Dealey and Nathan Lewis owned Ford vehicles that experienced sudden, unintended acceleration incidents that caused them injuries, according to a complaint filed Oct. 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.
These advertisements about safety and reliability influenced their decisions to purchase Ford vehicles and if those advertisements and any other materials not omitted that Ford vehicles could accelerate suddenly and out of the driver’s control and lacked readily available appropriate fail-safes to prevent this, they would not have purchased their Ford vehicles, they claim. The plaintiffs also claim that they experienced multiple sudden, unintended acceleration incidents.
Ford breached its warranties, committed fraud, was unjustly enriched at the plaintiffs expense and violated consumer protection laws, according to the suit.
