$3.2 Million – Wrongful Death Suit

The Case: The case centered around a 2012 accident that killed a father as his daughter was driving at highway speeds on I-70 near Limon, Colorado, when their vehicle suffered a tire tread separation on a rear tire. The family was driving a 2000 Ford Ranger pickup with two recently purchased tires on the front wheels. The tire dealership that installed the new tires neglected to recommend that the family also replace the rear tires, which were 14 years old.

The Result: Shareholder Christina Habas, along with co-counsel, were able to secure a $3.2 million settlement from the defendants in the case.
