Claiming negligence, Goodyear and Goodyear Dunlop Tires North America Ltd. sued two Chicago injury attorneys, according to Rubber News. They claim that negligence on the part of the two lawyers cost them what they believed would be an easy victory in a product liability case.
In that case, Michael and Darla Green were riding their Harley-Davidson motorcycle from Illinois to Yellowstone National Park in the summer of 2007. A friend warned the couple that their rear tire looked low on air and that she could smell burning rubber from their bike, according to undisputed facts related to the case.
However, the couple reportedly kept on riding until the tire suddenly deflated in Missouri and resulted in a crash.
