DaimlerChrysler Corporation

A Texas judge has granted nationwide class action status to a lawsuit against DaimlerChrysler Corporation on behalf of owners of an estimated 14 million Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles.

The suit focuses on the vehicles' seat belt buckle, known as the Gen 3, which is prone to unlatching during accidents or from around child or infant car seats in sharp turns or sudden stops. At least three deaths have been blamed on the buckle, and four others are under investigation. The class action seeks replacement of all Gen3 seat belt buckles in Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles, plus reimbursement for any inconvenience this may cause vehicle owners. [MORE INFO]

My parents were in a head on collision July, 2005 whereby my father was the passenger in the front seat. Upon impact the airbag deployed. On sudden stop the seat belt failed and my father hit the windshield.

His injury was a brain bleed, he died as a result of impacting the windshield.

The seatbelt was proven beyond reasonable doubt that it failed when my father was thrust forward.

I was going around a curve at about 30mph and my back tire hit gravel and began to fish tail. I couldn't regain control because the steering seemed to be tight and I ran up into a parking lot and hit a culvert. I was hospitilized over night and my face was busted up pretty badly. My face hit the steering wheel and gear shift because of the airbags and seat belt. My nose and lip were busted. My teeth almost went through my lip and my neck and back were injured.
