Jesse French settled a case in which a 16-year-old girl was attacked by two dogs. John Rowell successfully settled a products liability case against a major tire manufacturer and a major automobile manufacturer. John contended the tire had suffered a tread separation while his two clients were driving the vehicle on the freeway. John contended that as a result of the tread separation and the pick-ups lack of stability, the vehicle rolled over at freeway speeds, causing serious injuries to both of John’s clients. After the accident, examination of the tire which came apart showed it had sufficient tread and did not exhibit any unusual wear patterns. John took depositions of key tire engineers and tire plant manager level employees of the tire manufacturer, and was able to show, using the manufacturer’s own documents and tire x-rays, that the tire contained manufacturing defects and was badly designed. John retained nationally renowned experts who were prepared to testify that the design and manufacturing defects were the cause of the tread separation. Using the pick-up manufacturer’s internal documents and publicly available materials regarding design of the front axle of trucks and pick-up trucks, John was also able to show the front axle and front steering design made the vehicle extremely difficult to control in the event of a tread separation. During the course of investigation of this case, it was also discovered that the automobile manufacturer had used a design which decreased roof strength. John secured experts that would have testified that the roof design was the cause of a collapse of the roof over one of this clients and made her injuries worse. At that point, both the tire and the automobile manufacturers agreed to settle.

Through litigation, he obtained a settlement that was double the pre-litigation offer. John Denove and recently settled a case involving a broad side collision between two cars.
