Tire Defects

Tire Accident & Usage Statistics

Tire manufacturers and the federal government have recalled billions of auto parts due to defects that make them unsafe. However, these recalls only occur after a considerable amount of consumers have been seriously injured or killed as a result of the defective product. Some tire manufacturers and designers know that their product is defective, but still continue to make the product and sell it to consumers. Other manufacturers and drivers knowingly continue to make and sell defective products even when a safer alternative is only slightly more expensive. Therefore, victims of tire defects need attorneys who will not only recover maximum compensation on their behalf, but will hold the tire manufacturers and designers accountable by forcing them to provide a safer product to the general public.

Hazardous Tire Problems

When a tire is defective a blowout will usually take place. This will happen very quickly, which often leaves the driver without a safe way to stop the vehicle. As a result, a vehicle may take a sharp turn, flip, and overturn multiple times. Passengers in vehicles that are involved in these types of crashes are likely to suffer catastrophic injury or death. High speeds also make tire defects especially dangerous. A tire can be defective and dangerous, and cause a blowout, in a number of ways, including:

  • Adhesion Failures
  • Aged Tires
  • Belt Separations
  • Mismatched Tires
  • Misplaced Tires
  • Tire Construction
  • Tire Design Defects
  • Tire Manufacturing Defects
  • Tire Shredding
  • Tire Tread Separation
  • Used Tires
  • Valve Stem Defects
