$874,000 AWARDED FOR MAN HIT BY TIRE, 2004
A New York jury awarded $874,000 in damages to James Fahey, who was injured in 2004 when he was struck by a tire that came loose from an automobile. The wheel had been serviced three weeks earlier, and evidence from the accident indicated that the lug nuts had not been tightened. Fahey underwent surgery to place pins and plates in his knee, and still suffers some limitation of movement.
