I have previously posted on how dangerous old and defective tires are, and on how to determine the age of your tires. A jury recently agreed that tires can be dangerous and defective and returned a verdict against Cooper Tires for 28 Million dollars.

The Iowa jury listened to the argument that Cooper trial put savings first and safety second in making its decision. Given the horrible losses that were involved I know the family would rather have their loved ones back. This was an accident that the jury found did not need to happen and Cooper Tires paid hte price for cutting corners.
