DENVER (Nov. 7)—Joseph L. Lisoni, lead attorney in a class action suit against Bridgestone Corp. and its Bridgestone/Firestone subsidiary, has filed a product liability lawsuit against the tire companies in Colorado Superior Court in Denver. Florence Helms, 88, suffered a broken neck and wrist among other injuries when her daughter´s Ford 350 pickup truck went out of control. The crash allegedly was caused by a Firestone R4S tire on the truck that suffered a tread separation. Lisoni is trying to gain certification for the class action suit involving Steeltex tires and persuade the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to reopen its investigation of the tires.
