A jury in Nebraska last month awarded nearly $6.2 million to a woman who suffered serious injuries in a 2009 car crash. The bulk of the award will be paid by Nissan Motor Co. for using what was alleged to be a flawed seat belt system in its vehicles. The jury returned the verdict in favor of Amanda Maddox, 35, who was a passenger in the 2001 Nissan Pathfinder. Ms. Maddox has had dozens of surgeries and was disabled in the June 2009 head-on collision. The driver of the other vehicle, Edward Sapp, was killed in the crash that happened on U.S. Highway 127 near Junction City. Sapp was drunk and driving on the wrong side of the road when he crashed into Ms. Maddox’s Nissan vehicle, which was being driven by her husband.
