If you think about it....Goodyear isn't the only company to act like this when something goes wrong and their are fatalities. Some auto manufacturers are also guilty. Point being...hopefully the people injured or worse get compensated and the company improves. Doesn't fix what happened though.

True. But, they usually pay a heavy price in the end for such conduct.

I also think if we weren't such a litigious society, perhaps companies would act more responsibly. When they operate in constant fear of lawsuits, they sometimes tend to hunker down rather than be open about a defect. Thing is, doing so only makes it worse once the whole truth comes out, as it inevitably does.

It isn't just in defective products where companies have a bunker mentality either. Remember the United Airlines PR debacle after a ticketed passenger was bloodied and taken off a plane? They were tone deaf for over a week before they finally issued a real apology and a plan of action. They lost thousands of customers needlessly. But at least in that case, nobody died.
