Tire Defects Can Cause Catastrophic Injuries

Tires are some of the most important vehicle components; they steady your vehicle, support its weight, and control critical elements of driving, such as steering and braking. The lack of safe and secure tires can compromise a vehicle’s ability to perform and result in catastrophic accidents that injure you and others. If a tire breaks down or explodes due to a defect, you can file a claim against the manufacturer.

Accidents Caused by Defective Tires

The most common tire defects involve the slipping of a traction belt or steel belt separating. However, defects can cause a variety of problems which may lead to accidents. Sudden tire failure can cause a vehicle to slip or swerve and create conditions for both single-car and multi-vehicle collisions.

Loss of Control and Tire Blowouts

Blowouts are often attributed to poor road conditions. However, tire defects sometimes result in a tire blowout. Often, drivers will attempt to overcorrect when this happens. A sudden application of the brakes or accelerator may result in losing control of the vehicle.

Defective tire cases often involve multiple lines of investigation, especially if other drivers were involved in your accident. Our tire defect lawyers are able to enlist experts who can determine how your accident occurred and what caused it. We will work diligently to ensure that your defective tire claim is processed efficiently and investigated thoroughly while you focus on recovering from your injuries.

No matter the circumstances or repercussions of your accident, we’ll work with you to examine it in detail and lend advocacy and legal guidance to your claim.

Proving that Tire Defects Caused Your Accident

Identifying defective tires as the cause of your motorcycle, automobile, or commercial truck accident often takes assistance from investigators and safety experts. An investigative team can inspect your tires for signs of manufacturing or design flaws that may have ultimately caused your vehicle accident.

Problems that May Indicate Tire Defects

Tire defects are often the result of poor manufacturing processes or human error in manufacturing processes. Contamination on rubber components and air dripping from tires are all examples of manufactured defects that cause defective tire claims.

If you suffered a tire failure, it is often worth investigating the cause of that failure. Some tire problems may be red flags for manufacturing defects, such as:

  • 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
  • Tire tread separation
  • Belt separation
  • Missing tire components
  • Inappropriate tires for the vehicle
  • Improper tire mounting

When we find evidence of a tire defect on your motor vehicle, our Phoenix auto defect lawyers will begin to build a case against the tire manufacturing company and other liable parties. Contact us today to get help with your tire defect case.
