$15 million verdict for brain injury resulting from motorcycle accident

A $15 million verdict against Goodyear Donlop Tires for product liability and personal injury was recently made in favor of a woman who suffered a severe brain injury in a motorcycle accident near Pontiac, Illinois. The motorcycle’s tire, manufactured by Goodyear, suddenly deflated causing a crash during which the brain injury occurred even though the woman was wearing a helmet. The crash has led to severe cognitive defects and paralyzation. The woman is now permanently bound to a wheel chair and will require full time care for the rest of her life.
