Mechanism of Design Defect In CVT Engine Failure Causing Tragic Loss

Presenting the liability in cases involving product defects, design flaws, and mechanical failures can be challenging to visualize without the assistance of visual aid. At MotionLit we specialize in telling your clients story and brining to life the facts in your case with the power of 3D animations. In this case, the plaintiff was driving his Nissan sedan on the freeway when the CVT engine overheated and began to decelerate until stopping before he was able to move to the emergency lane, leading to an 18-wheeler fatally rear-ending their vehicle.

The common issues in types of engines known as continuous variable transmission (CVT) is the overheating, slipping belt, and sudden loss of acceleration which is what happened in this case. The complication in presenting these types of cases is understanding the mechanisms of the engine and its gear-change ratios. 

In this newly featured item in our online shop, MotionLit rendered a 3D scale model of the engine block, belts, and components that ultimately caused the transmission to fail. 

In cases involving product defects and mechanical failures, animations are an effective tool for showing the specific mechanism of the mechanical malfunction and the manufacturers negligence that lead to a fatally catastrophic vehicle collision.
