This case involves a motorcycle accident. The plaintiff, a forty-three-year-old female, purchased a new motorcycle. She had been riding for over twenty years. Also, she had the dealership place new tires on the motorcycle. The new tires were installed, but had a layer of wax on them for protection, as is commonplace with new tires. When leaving the dealership, she drove for eleven and a half miles, and on a slight turn, the motorcycle slid out from under her, which caused the plaintiff to fall and sustain serious injuries to her arms and head. The plaintiff brought suit against the tire manufacturer, stating that the tires were defective. An expert in tire failure analysis was sought to opine on the issue.
