24 Dec Boyd v. Anonymous Tire Manufacturer and Anonymous Tire Retailer
Circuit Court Jefferson County, Alabama, Bessemer Division Settlement of $775,000.00
A wrongful death case involving the death of an infant child settled for $775,000.00. The case dealt with an aged tire (over 11 years old) which had just recently been sold by the used tire retailer. The tire suffered a tread separation which resulted in a rollover accident. Suit was filed against the retailer for selling the aged tire, and it was also filed against the tire manufacturer for defective design and for failing to properly warn of the hazards of aged tires.
