Obtained a defense jury verdict for a product manufacturer in a catastrophic wheel-off case

A 40-year-old hospital administrator and his family were driving on an interstate when a set of dual wheels came loose from a tractor-trailer rig and crashed into their windshield. The man, who was driving, died in front of his wife and children. The wife and children received recoveries from the owner and operator of the tractor trailer rig. Then the family made claims against the maker of the axle nut on the rig, alleging that its defective design was the cause of the accident. John Lund and the rest of his team convinced the jury to reject those claims and return its verdict in favor of the product manufacturer.
