No one should have to worry about losing control of their vehicle because of a defect in a tire. I'm here to hold manufacturers responsible.
Owning a car is no small thing and it’s easy to feel like the vehicle is an extension of the owner’s home, a place where they can be themselves, a safe place. Unfortunately, car crashes occur every single day. Sometimes, those crashes are caused by negligent drivers who fail to pay attention to the road or get behind the wheel while intoxicated but in other cases, the accident occurs because a part of the car is defective. Of all the parts of the car that could fail, the most common is the tire.
What Kinds Of Tire Defects Cause Accidents?
Tires are comprised of rubber, steel, wiring, and fabric. These materials aren’t just thrown together haphazardly, over the decades, scientists, engineers, and manufacturers have found new ways to build tires, increasing the amount of time the tire can be used, increasing the speeds that can be maintained, and allowing harsher terrains to be explored by vehicles.
During the design and manufacturing process, the companies building and selling tires are supposed to do everything they can to ensure their product will do what it is advertised to do and keep consumers safe. Despite this, every year tires are sold that have defects such as:
- tread defects
- belt defects
- tire bead failures
- foreign materials included in the rubber
These defects frequently cause tread separation, belt separation, and tire explosions, causing unsuspecting drivers to lose control of their vehicle.
