    Claim on Behalf of Passengers Injured in Ford Econoline Van Roll-Over
    Steve Wahlberg has brought claims on behalf of passengers seriously injured when a Ford Econoline van rolled over. Mr. Wahlberg has investigated and litigated many claims involving passenger vans and has proven that 15 passenger vans have a higher center of gravity. These vans, when fully loaded, become unstable—if a tire should experience a tread separation, the vehicle becomes extremely dangerous and subject to a rollover. The 15 passenger van was a modified design of a vehicle meant to carry cargo. When Ford converted the van for occupants—the rollover rate increased significantly due to the higher center of gravity and extension over the rear tires. Mr. Wahlberg has also filed suit against Cooper Tire alleging a tire defect resulting in a tread separation. There was a recall of millions of Bridgestone and Firestone tires in 2001 to 2003, but some defective tires remain on the road. Some of the manufacturing problems include the improper curing of tires—which cause cracking that leads to tread separation. If the connection between the belt and the rest of the tire is weak—there can be a propensity for the tread to separate.
