April, 2007 – A Montgomery County jury awarded $4 million in favor of Carolyn Thorne against Wal-Mart Corporation. Mrs. Thorne was severely injured and paralyzed in a car accident shortly after having her car serviced at Wal-Mart. Mrs. Thorne's Ford Expedition went out of control when the tread on one of her tires separated. She is paralyzed as a result of the accident. According to Greg Allen, one of the attorneys for Mrs. Thorne, "Mrs. Thorne was doing everything she should have done. She regularly had her car serviced at the Wal-Mart store where they checked the tires. The car was serviced on nine different occasions after Wal-Mart had been made aware that the tire was recalled. She actually had the Expedition serviced one week before the accident and the technicians failed to realize that the tire was separating even though the evidence was undisputed that a bulge would have been apparent if the servicemen had simply looked. The Wal-Mart serviceman testified that they were not trained to look for tire problems."
