Disgraced Movie Producer Harvey Weinstein Files Lawsuit Against FCA!

Over Accident Involving A Jeep® Wrangler (JK) In 2019...

Disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein filed a lawsuit against former Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) in a New York court on Tuesday, claiming $5 million in compensation from FCA over an accident he had back in August 2019 in a Jeep® Wrangler (JK)

Weinstein who was behind the wheel of a 2017 Jeep Wrangler swerved to avoid a deer and crashed into a tree, not too far from his home in Bedford, New York. According to the suit, the vehicle “failed to decelerate despite Weinstein’s application of the vehicle’s braking system which resulted in a loss of vehicle control and subsequent rollover of the vehicle.”

The suit also stated that Weinstein was “properly wearing [his] seat belt” and “suffered catastrophic, permanent paralyzing injuries, as well as significant and continuing conscious pain and suffering,” during the accident.

Reports from various media outlets say that FCA had lent the vehicle to Weinstein at the time, in order to get product placement in one of his film productions. The suit also claims that FCA didn’t “ensure that the vehicle was in a reasonably safe condition.” 

The accident happened only a few weeks before the start of the producer’s sexual assault trial in Manhattan Supreme Court. Weinstein underwent back surgery in December 2019 and was seen with a walker and sitting in a wheelchair for parts of his trial. 

The trial ultimately resulted in a 23-year prison sentence for Weinstein, after a jury convicted him of sexual assault and rape charges. Weinstein who is 70-years-old is currently incarcerated in a prison in California where he is awaiting another trial for alleged sexual assault against other five women.
