Product Liability

Tire Defects

Defective tires are the cause of a significant number of car accidents every year. If you've been injured in an automobile accident caused by a defective tire, the firm of Watts Guerra can help. We are one of America's leading personal injury and product liability law firms, and we have led the fight against the manufacturers of defective tires.

Tread separation, tire shredding, and other manufacturing and design defects can have severe and even fatal consequences when tires fail at high speed. When a vehicle is traveling at high speed, tread separation or tire blowouts can cause the vehicle to roll over, causing serious and potentially fatal injuries.

Tire defects, sadly, are a common cause of car accidents. Tire manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that their products are safe and durable, but sometimes they fail in this duty. Even if there is a tire recall, it can come too late - every major tire manufacturer has had to recall tires at some time. But tire manufacturers will usually only recall their tires after a series of devastating accidents.

When tires fail, the defective tire might never have been properly identified as the cause of the accident. All to often, a family who lost a loved one in a car accident doesn't realize that a defective tire was the root cause. That's why speaking with a personal injury attorney after an accident is so important. A good personal injury firm will have access to knowledge and investigative resources that can be put to work for you, to protect your family and your future.

If you've been severely injured, or have lost a loved one, in a car accident caused by a defective tire, consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney is your best course of action.
