If your accident was caused by defective tires, you may be able to file a lawsuit
If you or someone else was hurt in a car accident caused by a defective tire, you may be able to pursue a legal claim against the tire's seller and/or manufacturer. Tire faults can be caused by a variety of factors, including design flaws, manufacturing flaws, or a lack of tire defect warnings.
You may be able to recover a variety of losses
You may be able to recover a wide variety of damages depending on the facts of your case. This includes missed pay, medical expenditures, loss of consortium, pain and suffering, car repairs, and future earnings. You may have grounds to pursue a wrongful death claim if you have lost a loved one.
Defective tires can result in a variety of accidents
Defective tires can cause collisions in a variety of ways. Tread separation is an example of tread separation, which occurs when the tread, which is the part of the tire with groves, separates from the remainder of the tire. This means that the grooves designed to drain water and avoid hydroplaning are unable to do their job, and the driver risks losing control of their car.
Tire blowouts are another example. This occurs when a tire ruptures when the vehicle is being driven at a high pace. Design flaws, manufacturing difficulties, or tread separation can all contribute to it. There can be a rapid loss of air pressure when rubber loses touch with the internal steel belt and the fabric reinforcement.
