Impact from Modified Jeep with Illegal Lift Kit Paralyzes Young Boy

A personal injury claim stemming from a 2019 motor vehicle impact in Georgia was recently settled for approximately $45 million. A Jeep Wrangler with an illegal lift kit struck the rear of a stopped passenger vehicle in which a nine-year-old boy was a rear seat passenger.
