Defective Tires and Car Accidents

Posted on 04/08/2013Back

When a tire blowout occurs, it can cause the driver to lose control and result in a motor vehicle accident.

Although many flat tires are caused by sharp objects in the road, others are the result of defects, design flaws, and mistakes on the part of the manufacturer. In fact, millions of defective tires have been recalled in the past decade alone, all from the largest tire companies in the nation – including Goodyear, Firestone, Michelin, and more. Tires are often sold long past their expiration dates, and old tires can create unnecessary risks for drivers.

There are many different types of potential tire defects, including:

  • Tread separation;
  • Failed tire adhesion;
  • Poor quality control;
  • Shredding;
  • Sidewall zipper failures;
  • Deficient skim stock;
  • Bead failures; and
  • Sale after the expiration date.
