$1 MILLION SETTLEMENT - FIRESTONE TIRE TREAD SEPARATES

A self-employed female tax preparer was partially paralyzed in a collision with a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction on Highway 4 near Pinole, California. The tread on the other vehicle’s Firestone tire separated, causing a collision with the pick-up truck being operated by her husband in which she was a passenger. We proved that the Firestone tire was defective. The settlement has permitted the woman to continue to work as a tax preparer.
