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
  • Should you choose a large lawyer or a small lawyer:
    The size of a law firm has no relation to how well your case will be taken up. A large law firm may seem well staffed and having a great office, but what you must see is whether they will take out enough time and effort towards your case. Large firms receive large cases that would figure above smaller cases in their priority list. A law firm with over 10 lawyers on its rolls can be considered a large firm.

  • Always make a comparison before choosing a lawyer:
    Before you choose a lawyer always make a good comparison by asking colleagues, friends and people associated with the legal profession. You can get some important information, which you would not get by simply visiting the law firm in question. Another good comparison is by finding out what other lawyers and legal web sites think about the law firm. A good site to find out about the standing of lawyers is
