Recognition follows firm’s successful work in faulty tire tread, truck crash injury cases
HOUSTON – Trial lawyers Kyle Farrar and Wesley Ball of Houston’s Farrar & Ball, LLP, once again are being honored among the state’s top attorneys on the annual Texas Super Lawyers list. The pair’s recognition by peers in the 2015 edition follows a long string of standout verdicts and settlements against tire manufacturers and companies in the trucking and transportation industry.
Mr. Farrar and Mr. Ball are among an elite group of lawyers under age 40 to be honored by Texas Super Lawyers, which typically recognizes only practitioners older than 40. Before joining the Texas Super Lawyers ranks in 2014, Mr. Ball and Mr. Farrar were repeat honorees in Texas Rising Stars, a sister publication to Super Lawyers that recognizes younger lawyers. Rising Stars recently selected firm associate David Romagosa for the sixth consecutive year.
The Texas Super Lawyers list published by Thomson Reuters’ legal division is compiled through nominations submitted by attorneys across Texas and extensive research by the publication’s editors. No more than 5 percent of all Texas lawyers are selected each year. The list appears in the October issues of Texas Monthly and Texas Super Lawyers magazines, and is available online at www.superlawyers.com.
The Farrar & Ball trial team has extensive experience with litigation related to motor vehicle injuries caused by tire tread separation and other tire tread defects. In 2010, the lawyers won a record $32.8 million verdict against Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. in connection with a deadly rollover crash. Farrar & Ball has prevailed against numerous automotive and Fortune 500 companies, including Michelin North America Inc., Ford Motor Co., General Motors Co., Sumitomo, Hankook Tire, Honda Motors, Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire, and numerous other corporate defendants.
Farrar & Ball, LLP, is dedicated to helping those injured due to corporate neglect. The firm has developed extensive knowledge of tire and vehicle failures, and also represents clients in pharmaceutical tort litigation, product liability claims, personal injury cases and business disputes.
