Product Liability Claims Can Help Manufacturing Practices

Milwaukee Product Liability Judgment for Exploding Tire Rim Victims

A large treaded snowblower tire is out of air. Sub-freezing temperatures have left the plastic rim brittle and cracked. As the owner inflates the tire, pressure causes an explosion. Shrapnelized wheel rim flies everywhere. From here, the story goes in a number of different directions. Sometimes hands are terribly lacerated. Sometimes fingers stop working. Sometimes faces are lacerated and facial bones are broken. When MTD Products, Inc., chose to use plastic rims for their snow thrower tires, they created a time bomb that would seriously injure many of their customers.

Warshafsky has represented dozens of victims and has held MTD accountable for those injuries. Victims with injuries, both serious and smaller, were compensated for those injuries.
