David Dobrovolny bought a new Ford F- 350 pickup truck. A year later, the truck spontaneously caught fire in Dobrovolny’s driveway. The truck was destroyed, but no other property was damaged, and no one was injured. Dobrovolny filed a suit in a Nebraska state court against Ford Motor Co. on a theory of strict product liability to recover the cost of the truck. Nebraska limits the application of strict product liability to situations involving personal injuries. Is Dobrovolny’s claim likely to succeed? Why or why not? Is there another basis for liability on which he might recover? Explain.
