Jury Awards $11.7 Million In Products Liability Case Involving Defective Tire.

Litigation can be a long, drawn-out, complicated process. The process can be so daunting that it can even discourage people from bringing otherwise meritorious claims. This rings especially true when the party which one wishes to sue is a large corporation that can afford top lawyers, and has experience litigating complicated matters. This presents a problem, as large companies can, through their negligence, cause injuries to people who deserve fair compensation. Products liability cases, for example, generally involve a product from a large company malfunctioning in some way and causing harm to a consumer. If the company was indeed negligent, the consumer should be able to have legal recourse to get fair compensation. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert products liability attorney at 617-787-3700.

In September 2018, Shanika Brown was involved in a multi-vehicle crash allegedly cause by a truck owned by Silvi Concrete Products. Her arm was severed, as was her infant daughter’s leg. Brown then brought a lawsuit alleging that a Bridgestone L315 tire on the Silvi truck was defective and caused the accident. Although Bridgestone maintains that its tire was not defective, it settled with Brown. Silvi, on the other hand, litigated the claim and had an $11.7 million verdict returned against it. Brown was represented by Kyle Farrar, of Lynch Farrar & Ball, a Philadelphia, PA law firm.
