Speaking of lawsuits, Chrysler boss Tom LaSorda said yesterday that lawsuits are responsible for an extra $500 in costs for every car and truck sold in the United States. According to LaSorda, there is potential testimony, like whether or not the victims were wearing a seat belt, that isn't heard by jurors because prosecutors are able to convince the judge to exclude the testimony.
The road to wellness isn't just via reforms for the automotive
industry, however. Reforms need to take place across all American industries, according to LaSorda.
