The Oregon Court of Appeals has ruled that a wrongful death lawsuit involving an exploding tire should move forward. The appeals court has ruled that Multnomah County Circuit Court judge erroneously dismissed the care accident and wrongful death case. The lawsuit was filed against Les Schwab Tire Centers of Oregon Inc. and Toyo Tire Holdings of Americas Inc. by the husband of a woman who died of injuries sustained when a tire exploded inside their car. The lower court previously ruled that the plaintiff had failed to meet the three-year statute of limitations to file suit in her death. However, the case was dismissed due to a faulty interpretation of the federal law that defines the statute of limitations in such cases, the Court of Appeals ruled.
