Dangerous Product: Deadly Defects in Ford 15-Passenger Vans and Goodyear LRE Tires
Our client, a school teacher, was wearing her seatbelt and sitting in the second row of a Ford 15-passenger van when the van's left rear tire suffered a tread separation. The van rolled over and our client lost her left arm in the crash. Our investigation proved that Goodyear knew that its tire had a history of problems and failure — especially in Arizona's hot climate — because of defects in design and manufacture. We were also able to establish that the design of the 15-passenger van made it dangerous and more susceptible to rollover than appropriate.
