Second Lawsuit Filed in Auto Accident Caused by Defective Tire

Defective tires make their way into the market more often than we think, causing serious and fatal accidents. When a tire company, such as Bridgestone, creates a defective tire or tire part, it should be held liable for the injuries and deaths that the defects cause. If you have a pending defective product lawsuit and need a lawsuit cash advance to assist with your financial distress needs, consider Lawsuit Financial.

A Utah-based truck driver has filed a federal lawsuit against Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations alleging negligence. The claim is the latest related to a fatal crash on Interstate 80 in southeast Cheyenne.

In November 2014, a FedEx tractor-trailer driven was heading westbound on the interstate when the front driver’s side tire of the tractor failed, causing the vehicle to enter the median, plow through the cable barrier and strike an eastbound minivan before colliding partially head-on with another minivan. The driver and two passengers in the second van were killed. Family members of the three victims filed lawsuits against Bridgestone and FedEx. Their cases have been consolidated for a trial set to start next year.

The truck driver’s personal injury lawsuit says Bridgestone’s tire “was in a defective, dangerous condition at the time of its sale” and was “unreasonably dangerous,” and that Commercial Tire Inc. sold the two allegedly faulty Bridgestone tires to FedEx and installed them in August 2014. The truck driver alleges he “has suffered emotional stress, shock, trauma and injury to his emotional well-being, all of which has caused, continues to cause, and in the future will cause him mental pain and suffering and emotional distress.” He is seeking compensation in excess of $75,000 to cover medical expenses and loss of income, as well as the physical pain and suffering, disability and emotional distress he’s had to and will endure.

If a court finds that Bridgestone acted negligently, the victims may be able to recover compensation for medical and/or funeral expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship. The battle will most likely include a struggle to pay bills and expenses while waiting for a settlement or award from a jury. One way to minimize the financial impact is to seek a lawsuit cash advance.
