Korean automaker to pay $14M in U.S. airbag defect trial

A federal court in Virginia ordered South Korean automaker Hyundai Motor Co. to pay a man $14 million after he sustained brain damage in a car accident in 2010.

After a deliberation that lasted for more than eight hours on June 28, jurors in Pulaski County state court found Hyundai responsible for the defective airbag design that caused the traumatic brain damage injury sustained by Zachary Duncan three years ago. According to court documents the side airbags did not deploy due to sensors not being placed in the correct places.

The automaker said they will file an appeal
