Sudden Unintended Acceleration Claims Filed Against Ford

The National Law Journal reports that consumers have filed economic loss claims against Ford based on the risk of sudden unintended acceleration.  The national class action has been filed in federal court in West Virginia.  Unsurprisingly, the claims exclude potential personal injury or wrongful death claims. Rather, the claims sound in contract and include Magnuson-Moss, state warranty, consumer protection and unfair trade practices claims.  The full article is behind a free registration wall.

I have written about these risk-based claims in Against Liability for Private Risk-Exposure.
