New York. Tesla has been sued by a woman in the US for her husband’s death. The woman’s husband had died due to an accident involving a Model 3 vehicle.
On March 12, 2022, 46-year-old Jeong Woo Han’s Tesla car crashed into a tree and the vehicle caught fire due to a malfunction in New York on March 12, 2022. Han died in this accident.
Now, plaintiff Jeong Yoon is suing Tesla in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York for its role in unreasonably dangerous design, manufacture, distribution and sale of the car and its role in causing Hahn’s death.
Hahn was driving a Tesla on the Palisades Interstate Parkway in Rockland County, New York.
The lawsuit is seeking a judgment against Tesla for all damages recoverable by law. Including economic damages, earning capacity, mental agony, pain, punitive damages, costs and interest.
The lawsuit comes after engineers at the electric carmaker reportedly admitted in their testimony that Musk’s Tesla did not fix the Autopilot system after a crash in the US in 2016 that killed a driver.
Tesla is under intense scrutiny for its Autopilot and Full Self-Driving (FSD) driver assistance features.
The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is also investigating the self-driving claims made by Musk.
