Pickup Loses Tire and Kills 17 year old Girl


Litigation Type - Car Accidents

Client Injury - Death

A car driven by a teen-age girl carrying her two friends were heading east on Highway 23 in Quamba, Minnesota and a pick up was approaching them headed west. As they got closer to each other, the left front tire of the pick up blew out and the driver of the pick up lost control. He veered violently to the left and crossed the center line and hit the car head on. The force of the impact knocked the car into the ditch. The driver of the car was killed as a result of the collision and her two friends badly injured.

Jim Carey settled this case against the defendant driver as well as the insurer for the shop that was negligent in its repair and mounting of the tire. He received a settlement in the amount of $205,000.
