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.

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

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.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
