Phoenix Tire Defect Attorney

Tires are some of the most important vehicle components. They steady the vehicle, support its weight and control critical elements such as steering and braking. Lack of safe and secure tires can compromise a vehicle’s ability to perform.

If a tire manufacturer fails to ensure the performance and durability of its products, consumers can suffer serious consequences.

Were Tire Defects To Blame for Your Accident?

Identifying defective tires as the cause of your motorcycle, automobile, truck or commercial big rig accident may take assistance from investigators and safety experts. An investigative team could inspect your tires for signs of manufacturing or design flaws that may have ultimately caused your vehicle accident. If you suffered a tire failure, it is often worth investigating the cause of that failure.  Certain tire problems can present red flags for product defects.

  • Irregular or uneven wear and tear
  • One tire wearing down faster than the others
  • Thin tire wall or lack of tread-
  • A shredded tire or tire blowout
  • Tire explosion
  • Tread or belt separation
  • Missing tire components
  • Inappropriate tires for the vehicle
  • Improper tire mounting

Upon finding evidence of a tire defect, your Phoenix auto defect lawyer could begin to build a case against the tire manufacturing company or another party. At Gallagher & Kennedy, we have the power to go up against some of the major tire makers in the world, including Michelin, Cooper Tire, Goodyear, Bridgestone, Dunlop Tires, Continental, Firestone, and Pirelli as well as heavy truck tire makers. Our firm has experience litigating against many major corporations around the globe.
