A Texas jury has awarded $24 million to the family of an 18 year old woman who died in a roll-over accident after being ejected from the vehicle, allegedly due to a defective seatbelt.

The manufacturer of the seatbelt, Honeywell International, Inc., plans to appeal the verdict. Honeywell contends that the woman was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the accident, but the family argued that bruising and other injuries show that she had to have been wearing her seatbelt when the rollover occurred.

Honeywell is a diversified manufacturer and worldwide conglomerate that makes airplane controls and a variety of automobile parts, including seat belts.
