MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Charity B. Hosey has filed a wrongful death suit against Isuzu Motors, Ltd., American Isuzu Motors, Inc., Subaru-Isuzu Automotive, Inc., McGough Oldsmobile-GMC-Isuzu, Inc., Takata Corporation, Takata Restraint Systems, Inc., and James Hill.

On October 17, 2002, in Lowndes County, Edwan L. Hosey was driving a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo, and Victor L. Davis was a passenger in the automobile. They were traveling eastbound on County Road 2, when the vehicle started to pull to one side, causing Mr. Hosey to lose control of the vehicle. The Isuzu’s stability and handling defect resulted in the automobile overturning. The Defendants, but not Mr. Hosey, knew of the handling and stability defect. The Defendants tried to repair the defect, to no avail, shortly after the vehicle was sold to Mr. Hosey.

“As a direct result of the defective design and manufacture of the Isuzu Rodeo, Edwan L. Hosey lost control of the vehicle and was killed,” said plaintiff attorney LaBarron Boone, with Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C. “As the Isuzu Rodeo overturned, the seatbelt system failed to keep Edwan L. Hosey and Victor L. Davis inside the vehicle. As a result of the rollover, both Edwan L. Hosey and Victor L. Davis who were wearing their seatbelts were nevertheless thrown from the vehicle. Mr. Edwan Hosey, the owner of the vehicle, was killed and Victor L. Davis was injured.”

Mrs. Charity Hosey has filed the lawsuit as administrator of the estate of her deceased husband, Edwan L. Hosey, and on behalf of Victor L. Davis.

Impressed with the Beasley Allen staff

I am very impressed with the Beasley Allen staff. They were very courteous and patiently explained the aspects of my claim in a way I could understand. If I ever have any need of an attorney in the future I will turn to Beasley Allen.
