Kevin Hart and the two people in his car who crashed on September 1, have all dissolved suffered severe back and chest injuries just as the passenger in the backseat, who has suffered minor injuries, has a lawyer. Kevin also has a lawyer.
The driver could also be on the hook for Kevin and the passenger in the back seat, but it is a little premature, as the CHP is still investigating the cause of the crash.
The Big Problem … We've told the company that the car could be custom-made to litigation. The argument goes like this … the company is the expert and even if Kevin wanted to have a custom job with no safety harnesses, the company should have refused the job because he was not sure … especially with a powerful one 720-horsepower engine.
We've contacted 10 custom car companies across the country and asked if Kevin's Crash opened their eyes and changed their mind about customizing vintage cars without the seatbelt installation. 8 out of 10 said they would do it if the customer so wished. Only 2 said they would not.
It's interesting because it opens these companies for a lawsuit, especially when there are passengers in the car who were injured.
Our law enforcement agencies report to us. The CHP may require California legislation to prohibit automakers from launching products without straps, whether or not the customer so wishes.
