Thoughts on Large Truck and Tire Failure

We have been seeing more and more steer-axle tires fail on semi-trucks like this one all across the country. Truck drivers and passenger motorists alike are getting seriously injured and killed by no fault of their own. No doubt about it — we need to remove these defective tires from our roadways for everyone’s safety.

When accidents of this magnitude happen, it is crucial for trained professionals to examine the tire in question as soon as possible to see whether it is defective. When a tire is deemed defective, the manufacturer is responsible for any serious injuries or deaths the product caused. Manufacturers cannot produce a faulty tire with structural flaws that harm the motoring public and not be held accountable for it.

Unfortunately, as of late, we have noticed a pattern — the same manufacturers are involved in these devastating tire crashes. With decades of experience handling complex tire cases, our mission is to spread awareness of this trend and bring justice to those impacted by these damaging, defective products.
