My name is Lynn Alfano. I am a Law Clerk in Miami, Florida. I am currently working on a case where a 12 year old girl was sitting in the back seat of a 1999 Kia Sephia when it was rear ended by another car.
Just another car crash, right?
The driver seat-back reclining system failed on impact, causing the driver's seat-back to hit the 12 year-old girl in the head and break EVERY bone in her face.
She is now disfigured and will require many painful operations for approximately the next ten years.
What I want to know is whether you have heard of anyone else with such an experience with the Kia Sephia. I hope no one else has had such a devastating experience, but maybe someone has had experience with a Seat-back failure on the Kia that I can contact and talk to. I really need to know if any other lawsuits have been filed against Kia for a Seat-back failure. I need all the leads I can get. I like to see such a dangerous car removed from our roads.
