$15 Million Awarded to Parents of California Accident Victims
A jury in Alameda County, California, found Enterprise Rent-A-Car liable for $15 million in the death of two sisters involved in a crash while renting one of their cars.
The parents filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Enterprise when experts found that the accident was caused when their daughter lost the ability to steer the vehicle due to leaking power steering fluid. Two of their daughters died when they crashed into a tractor trailer in October, 2004.
Enterprise did not complete the recommended repair work on the PT Cruiser the two were riding in even though they had received a recall notice warning that the power steering hose on the car could leak.
