FORD/FIRESTONE ROLLOVER ACCIDENT
$185,000.00 Settlement in Product Defect Case with Major Property Damage…
Attorney Mark C. Blane obtained a $185,000.00 settlement for a San Diego man who sustained a roll-over accident with his Ford Bronco when his tire blew due to a defect in the tire. Lawsuit was brought in San Diego Federal Court and it was settled with National Counsel for Ford and Firestone in Houston, Texas. Mr. Blane had one of the first settlements with the Ford and Firestone National Counsel in the United States.
The case involved a defective tire that Ford had in production. The rubber shelling around the tire was not up to product standard and this combine with the top heaviness of the Ford Explorer made it a mind field waiting to explode. The case was filed in Federal Court and quickly consolidated. The injured client suffered from neck and back injuries.
