Defective Tires

Injuries Caused by Faulty Products

At Lauri J. Goldstein & Associates, PLLC, we believe that product developers and manufacturers are responsible to provide consumers with safe merchandise. As a consumer, you assume that the products you purchase will the serve their intended purposes - not injure you or cause you harm. If you've been hurt by a defective product, talking to a lawyer from our firm may be your best option. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), tire safety is of vital importance. With safe tires, motorists can avoid breakdowns and dangerous crashes. On the other hand, dangerous tires may cause unnecessary breakdowns and risky accidents.

About Tire Defects

Whether you realize it or not, there are numerous types of tire defects. Aged tires are one of the most common defects on the road today. Just like perishable food, tires have an expiration date. They are only useful for a certain amount of time. Once a tire is too old, it become susceptible to defects and may cause a serious accident. Why? The chemical ingredients used in rubber degrade as time passes. However, manufacturers may carelessly allow tires to sit in warehouses for years before selling them. Although these tires may not have been defected when they were manufactured, they may be considered defective by the time they are used by consumers.

Tread separation my also lead to car crashes and serious accidents. This problem is especially dangerous in vehicles with high centers of gravity, like SUVs, 15-passenger vans and large trucks. When tire treads become separated because of a defect in their design or manufacturing, they might suddenly blowout. Tire blowouts can easily lead to rollover accidents or other serious crash. Tread separation can be caused by a variety of factors. For instance, treads may become separated if the rubber is bonded poorly to the steal during manufacturing. Over the years, millions of tires have been recalled because of this defect.

Accidents and Injuries

Tire sidewall failures may lead to serious injuries, too. In short it the sidewall of the tire isn't strong enough, it may explode. This could happen on the road or when a consumer is attempted to repair a flat. If the sidewall of a tire explodes while the vehicle is moving quickly, the driver may lose control of his/her vehicle. Blowouts can lead a multitude of injuries. For instance, rollover accidents often lead to serious head trauma, spinal injuries, concussions, paralysis - even death. If a tire explodes while the consumer is attempting to change it, he/she may suffer severe damage to the face or limbs.

Defective Tires: Who is responsible?

The question of responsibility is vitally important to the outcome of your product liability lawsuit. If you've been hurt in an accident caused by a faulty tire, you probably have a lot of questions: When can I go back to work? How will I pay for medical bills? What about missed wages? These are fair questions. At Lauri J. Goldstein & Associates, PLLC, we want to help you find the answers.
