Dangerous Tires – Oscar Mendez’s Story
Today the INSIDER EXCLUSIVE “Goes Behind The Headlines” in DANGEROUS TIRES – Oscar Mendez’s Story ….. to examine how James F. Scherr, Ptr @ Scherr & Legate, successfully won a $10,000,000 Million Dollar verdict ….the first of its kind in Texas….. against Cooper Tire for defective tires.
After an 8 week trial… a Texas jury of everyday citizen found that the Cooper Tire’s manufacturing defect was 100% responsible for multiple passenger deaths in a horrific automobile crash
The Trial court’s evidence proved the Cooper tire separated because of contamination and adhesion failure.
Cooper Tire appealed the case to the 8th Texas Court of Appeals, which reviewed the entire case and evidence AND LOST, affirming the $10 Million dollar jury verdict.
The Court of Appeals found the experts were very qualified and that the evidence supported the verdict. Cooper tire appealed the case to the Texas Supreme Court.
