In California, where many of us spend a great deal of time on the road, we depend on our tires to safely get us where we are going. However, tire defects can cause and contribute to accidents that result in serious personal injury and death.
If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident that you believe was linked to a tire defect, we'd like to speak with you. Please contact a defective tire attorney at The Reeves Law Group in California, today at (800) 644-8000 to arrange a free initial consultation and case evaluation.
Aged tires — Just as most food products have a shelf life, every new tire has a limited useful life. Tires are made of rubber, which changes chemically over the years. Even if a tire has never been used, it can be defective merely because it has spent too much time in a warehouse or on the retailer's shelf. If you were sold a six-year-old tire as new and were injured in an accident, you can hold the tire retailer liable for your injuries and other damages.
Tire tread separation — Separation of the tire tread from the tire itself leads to rollover accidents, especially in SUVs, 15-passenger vans, and other vehicles with a high center of gravity. Tread separation can also cause a sudden tire blowout. Tread separation can be caused by poor bonding of the rubber to the steel belt during the manufacturing process. Tire tread defects have caused numerous tire recalls, including the recall of 14.4 million Firestone tires used on the Ford Explorer.
Mismatched tires — Mismatched tires will adversely affect handling of a vehicle and could lead to accidents.
Misplaced tires — New tires on the front of a vehicle, and old ones on the rear can cause hydroplaning.
Used tires — If they were represented to you as new tires and caused you injury in an accident, we can hold the retailer, and possibly others, liable.
