Tire Inflator Used to Fix a Flat Causes Tire Explosion
Cherry vs. CSA, Ltd.
The Willis Law Firm - Actual Case
One afternoon at a Chervon station in Houston, Texas, a young teenage worker was approached by a customer, a Harris County Sheriff, and asked if he could fix his tire. Upon inspection our client found and removed the nail in the tire and asked the man if he wanted to have it patched or plugged. The Deputy Sheriff said "plugging it is fine." Our client then proceeded to clean out the puncture hole with a tire reamer (similar to an ice pick), when suddenly the tire exploded. Our client was propelled almost 20 feet backwards and suffered multiple injuries. He was hospitalized for approximately 3 months. The deputy sheriff required a knee surgery from the flying shrapnel of the tire. After extensive research, the client's family hired David P. Willis of Houston, Texas to represent their son and litigate against CSA, Ltd. - the company that made the butane based tire inflator that had been used days before to "fix" the tire.
Attorney David Willis obtained a confidential settlement for Mr. Cherry and his family.
