Famous South Korean Celebrity Filed A Lawsuit Against Tesla
A famous South Korean celebrity by the name Ji Chang Son sued Tesla Motors last Friday at the U.S. District Court in the Central District of California.
According to the source, Mr. Ji Chang Son was parking his Model X SUV into his garage when suddenly it began to accelerate at full speed and came crashing through the interior wall of the garage, destroying several wooden support beams in the wall, a steel sewer pipe, and his living room. This happened last year on a September night. Thankfully, no one died in the incident, but he himself accumulated some injuries.
It was also reported that Mr. Ji Chang Son posted on Facebook about the accident, giving details as to what happened and how he could have died if the support beams were not made of wood. He then explained in the post that Tesla Motors did not want to take the blame which made him began to consider a lawsuit against the company.
According to several reports, Tesla did an investigation regarding Mr. Ji Chang Son's accident. However, a Tesla spokesperson said that based on the evidence, it was clear that the Model X SUV was not at fault in the accident and the person to blame was the driver. There were even reports saying that before Mr. Ji Chang Son filed for a lawsuit, he threatened to use his celebrity status in Korea to hurt Tesla's reputation unless Tesla will agree to pay for the damages and agree to take all the blame.
When this case came to light, several other cases regarding the Tesla vehicles have also been reported as to accelerate without warning came to light as well. But just like the other cases, Tesla was adamant to say that their vehicles are equipped with a software that protects against pedal misapplication on multiple levels. It was also reported that according to a study by NASA that from 2000 to 2010, the rate of sudden unintended acceleration incidents was one in 100,000.
