I just totalled my first car, a 1998 Jeep Wrangler. Two weeks prior I went in to Kal-Tire, a local tire chain, and asked for winter tires. They said in a 4x4 all that are needed are all season tires, so they suggested new all-season tires for the front and I just keep my old, worn out all-season tires on the back. Sure enough, after a snowfall I was driving down a relatively clear highway when the back, unchanged tires, began to skid and I veered off into a concrete wall. I have a broken neck, torn ACL, and some minor head injuries, and am wondering the chance of a successful lawsuit, considering they detered me from buying the winter tires I asked for.
Thanks for reading!
Edit: This happened in British Columbia, Canada, if that matters
