I had a terrible accident. Hit three hard objects, knocking down a tree. The airbag safety and seatbelt system failed to work, strange thing, the driver seat did not work and the passenger empty seat did. The Jeep was total. The roots of the tree got into the cabin an. Broke my face also hurt my spine. The Jeep Compass was sold by insurance and the airbag system except the side curtain (that never came out) were not sold. The insurance claims that the sold the car because they had it and I asked why if it was total(?) and the airbag system is obviously not working. Chrysler claims that I destroyed the evidence and they could not examined the Jeep Compass. I had a specialist do a costly examination which declared the failure of the system. If they sold it in the three days at the junk yard then there is a person out there with their life at risk. Chrysler has been cruel to me and its' lawyers.
