Tire Defects Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Most people have experienced a tire leak or lost air pressure in a tire. This commonly occurs when a tire is worn or there is a puncture in the tire. In most cases, tires slowly lose pressure and alert the driver that something is wrong, giving them a chance to pull over and have the tire replaced or repaired. Unfortunately, when a sudden tire blowout occurs, it can be very dangerous and may result in lost control of the vehicle. Tire defects can cause a sudden tire blowout and may cause serious injury accidents.

Tire manufacturers have an obligation to design and build tires that can withstand the normal wear and tear of driving. Most have an expected lifespan of 30,000 or more miles before they wear out and need replacement. However, if a poor design or defect causes them to fail prematurely, they can blow out under normal driving conditions. An unexpected tire blowout can cause a serious accident, resulting in severe injuries and death. If a tire defect is to blame, the tire manufacturer may be liable for the injuries caused in a tire blowout accident.

Types of Tire Defects

Tires require careful design and quality materials to maintain their integrity on the road. They must hold up under the weight of the vehicle, withstand friction and maintain pressure in extreme heat and cold. When a tire is defective, it may fall apart without notice or even explode when driving. Some of the types of tire defects that can cause sudden tire failure include:

  • Tread separation
  • Side wall collapse
  • Damage to the tire from a defective rim
  • Faulty tire bead

Tire defects have caused serious accidents. A sudden tire blowout at higher speeds can be deadly. If you have experienced a sudden tire failure that caused an injury accident, you may be the victim of a defective tire accident.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
