Ayrault was driving her car to the
family doctor for an appointment. When she stopped for a red light the
car behind her “rear-ended” her car. Upon impact, Ayrault’s car caught
fire and was totally destroyed. Ayrault was rushed to the hospital with
several burns. She did survive but was permanently scarred. An
investigation by the insurance company revealed that the gasoline tank
was designed with weak walls such that any impact could rupture the tank
and cause the car to catch fire, even when the tank was correctly
assembled and installed. Could Ayrault sue the car manufacturer?
