Tens of millions of tires have been recalled in recent years according to the National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration (NHTSA). Design or manufacturing defects in tires may contribute to loss of tread or blowouts, which can cause car accidents resulting in severe personal injury or wrongful death.
Hiring an attorney with experience in both product liability issues and traffic collisions is important in car accident cases involving defective tires. If you were hurt in a car accident caused by a tire blowout, Phoenix, Arizona, car accident lawyer Jerrold Mayro may be able to help you recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering.
Faulty tire design or defects in tire production can leave tires vulnerable to tread separation, which can contribute to blowouts. The risk of tread separation may cause a tire recall.
When tire treads begin to peel off it may cause the tire to blow out and the driver to lose control of the vehicle. Tire blowouts are especially dangerous in vehicles with high centers of gravity, such as SUVs or tractor-trailers.
If you were injured or a loved one was killed in an auto accident in which a tire blowout was a factor, please contact Phoenix car accident attorney Jerrold Mayro for your free case consultation.
