A judge has just approved a $149 million settlement of 30 class action lawsuits that were filed after the 2000 Firestone tire recall. There were 14.4 million Firestone tires involved in the recall. The settlement included the Firestone ATX, ATX II, and Wilderness AT tires that were investigated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2000. There were at least 271 U.S. traffic deaths linked to the Firestone tire recall. Most of the recalled tires were sold with the Ford Explorer. Terms of the settlement calls for Firestone to pay roughly $70 million to replace the recalled tires, $41 million to manufacture certain tires with materials that would provide a better high speed capacity, $15.5 million on a consumer education and awareness campaign, and $19 million for attorney's fees. The Firestone tire recall includes 22 brands of Bridgestone/Firestone tires between 1991 and 2001. Since the settlement could affect an estimated 15 million drivers, involving about 60 million tires, those not named in the settlement will qualify to have them replaced.

  • Choosing a Lawyer
  • Discuss your case in detail:
    When you visit a lawyer to discuss your case make sure that you have all the facts and figures ready with you. It can be a good idea to note down all the important facets of the case and then elaborate them before the lawyer. The more information you provide to the lawyer, the better he/she can assess the nature of your case. More importantly you can assess how the lawyer will proceed in handling your case after you have supplied all the information. It is always a good idea to ask the lawyer what course of action he/she recommends in your case, and the answer will greatly depend upon how much information you have supplied.

  • What you should ask in a fixed fee case:
    A fixed fee is also called a standard fee and is usually chargeable by lawyers in routine cases. An example would be a simple private company formation for which a lawyer may charge all clients $2000. As the same suggests, a fixed fee should be 'fixed', however this should be clarified with the lawyer. There should be clarity about additional charges if any that are not included in the fixed fee.
