Ford Motor Co. has settled a lawsuit that alleged defects in tires on a Ford Bronco II contributed to cause a crash that left a man paralyzed and with cognitive impairment. Terms of the settlement with the Plaintiff, Bryan Mizenko, are confidental and were sealed by the court. A jury in Cascade County, Mont., in April found that defects in a Firestone tire were the primary factor in a 2003 crash. Both Firestone and the used car dealer where the Plaintiff bought the vehicle settled out of court. The Plaintiff contended the crash was one of several caused by tread belt separation on this type of Firestone tire. Ford argued that the tire failed because it was 14 years old and had been damaged.
