Chelsie Hill was a passenger in a Toyota 4Runner that was involved in a crash in California in 2012. The driver was under the influence of alcohol. The accident left her with severe spinal injuries, and she can no longer walk. Ms. Hill is now a paraplegic.

Ms. Hill’s car seat only had a lap belt when she was injured, while the other seats had three-point lap-shoulder belts. The other passengers only suffered minor injuries. Ms. Hill allegedly flew out of her seat at the time she was injured.

In the suit that followed, filed by her California injury lawyers, Ms. Hill alleged that Toyota knew that the lap belt was dangerous, but did not do anything about it. The jury found Toyota to be 90% liable for the injuries Ms. Hill sustained. The Superior Court jury in Monterey, California awarded $12 million to Ms. Hill.
