When defective auto parts, specifically defective tires, are the cause of accident or injury, the affected consumers have the right to seek recourse through the courts. The legal rights of all citizens provide that those that negligently cause the injury of others by knowingly distributing defective and dangerous products can be held accountable for their actions. Our law firm is committed to protecting these rights.
Our defective tire lawyers focus on tire defect lawsuits, including those dealing with defective tire tread separations, belt separations, tire failure, tire bead explosions, tire blowouts, and other mishaps that are the result of defective design and manufacture of automotive tires. We stand up to the big companies who endanger consumers – and we get results on behalf of our valued clients.
“We all put our trust in tire manufacturers every day. But what happens when that trust is misplaced?”
Many years back Bridgestone Corp. announced the recall of 6.5 million of its Firestone-brand tires — the second largest tire recall in U.S. history — in response to complaints that the tires may be linked to fatal crashes involving sport utility vehicles. Specifically, U.S. Regulators had noticed a trend in accidents involving the Ford Explorer which had a tendency to roll over when one of its tires blew out. The tires had a pre-disposition to suffering from tread separation. Some estimates claim that as many as 250 deaths and more than 3000 catastrophic injuries were associated with the defective tires throughout the United States.
The story illustrates a frightening reality about the safety and standards by which manufacturers produce the autos and equipment that we rely on to transport ourselves and our families on a daily basis. We all put our trust in tire manufacturers every day. But what happens when that trust is misplaced? Tre defects, defective tire treads, tire tread separation, and tire blowouts aren’t just dangerous – these defects can be deadly.
Manufacturers implicated in recent tire defect scandals include Michelin, UniRoyal, B.F. Goodrich, Firestone, Bridgestone, Goodyear, Cooper, Dunlop, Continental, and Kelly Springfield. However, this list is not all-inclusive, and other tire defect accidents happen on a regular basis. One way rollovers occur is when a defective tire explodes, losing its tread, thus presenting significant danger to the passengers and driver of the car as well as affecting others on the road. Unfortunately, these catastrophic accidents can present severe and life-long difficulties to their victims who often face prohibitively expensive medical bills, the need for ongoing care and rehabilitation, missed time from work, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We provide aggressive, competent and comprehensive representation to injured parties who are seeking compensation for their medical care, expenses, and trauma. When a person dies due to an accident caused by a tire defect, our firm takes a stand on behalf of the surviving family members by fighting the manufacturers for compensation for wrongful death.
There’s no excuse for the manufacturing, designing, or selling of defective tires. This gross abuse of consumer trust is unacceptable and should not go unnoticed. Our top personal injury attorneys call upon a wealth of experience when they take on tire manufacturers – and they specialize in results.
