Columbus, GA, has a small-town feel, but it doesn’t lack culture or fun activities. You can catch a jazz show at The Loft, attend a concert by the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, visit the Columbus Botanical Garden, or cruise along the Columbus RiverWalk. Lots of people use a car to get around this great city, but sadly, accidents caused by auto defects have become all too common.
The big automakers have a long and shameful history of selling unsafe cars. Even when it becomes clear that their vehicles have severe design flaws, these corporations will often refuse to issue a recall or make the necessary changes to save lives and prevent catastrophic injuries.
At Butler Prather LLP, we stand up to the big automakers. Our firm has won landmark cases such as Hill v Ford Motor Co., where we obtained a $1.7 billion verdict for the surviving children of a Georgia couple who died due to the weak roof in their Ford Super Duty truck.
Our firm also won a major verdict against Chrysler on behalf of a Georgia family whose four-year-old son was killed when their Jeep Grand Cherokee burst into flames after being rear-ended. The fire was caused by the faulty placement of the vehicle’s plastic gas tank.

Officials at Chrysler (now called Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, FCA) resisted pressure to move the highly flammable plastic gas tanks in the Jeep Cherokee vehicles for over 20 years. Butler Prather LLP took these large corporations to court to get justice for our clients.
