Was Your Accident Caused by a Defective Tire?

The designers and manufacturers of automobile tires have a responsibility to produce reasonably safe products. Unfortunately, defective auto tires are incredibly common, affecting millions of vehicles and motorists on America’s highways and roads. When tire manufacturers prioritize their own profits over public safety, innocent individuals are needlessly injured and killed. At The Ammons Law Firm, we believe the negligent parties should be held accountable.

Tire defect litigation is a niche practice area; it takes a highly skilled and knowledgeable legal team to effectively pursue a case. At The Ammons Law Firm, our Houston tire defect attorneys have over a century of combined legal experience and focus a large portion of their practice on this area of law. We have a proven track record of success—including over $1 billion recovered for our clients. We know how to prove liability in defective tire cases and seek the maximum compensation our clients are owed.

Proving that a faulty tire led to a collision is challenging. In the wake of an accident, it is not always immediately obvious that a defective tire was the cause. However, our attorneys know what to look for in order to identify the signs of a defective tire. We often work with various industry experts to investigate the scene of the accident, gather evidentiary documentation, and build a solid case that supports our clients’ claims. We have actual institutional knowledge on how to pursue—and win—tire defect claims.

Commonly Asked Questions

About Tire Defect Accidents
  • How do I know if my tire has been recalled?

    If you own a tire that has been recalled, you may be contacted by the manufacturer to inform you of the recall and what steps they will take to rectify the problem. However, you can also check to see if your tire has been recalled by contacting the manufacturer yourself and speaking to a customer service representative with the company. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) also provides a list of tire recalls and tire safety information, or you can look up your tire on the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association’s website. You will need to know the Tire Identification Number (TIN).

  • What should I do if I think my tire is defective?

    If you believe you have a defective tire, you can report it to the manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). You can also file a Vehicle Complaint Form at safercar.gov. To do so, you will need to know the Tire Identification Number (TIN), as well as the size, brand, and make of the tire.

  • How can I tell if a defective tire led to my auto accident?

    Proving that a defective tire caused an auto accident is rarely easy. However, there are certain signs that indicate a tire defect is what led to a collision. Our attorneys conduct exhaustive investigations to determine if and how a defective tire or auto part caused an accident that left you injured. We examine whether the tire was recalled or if it blew out prior to the accident. We also look for signs of tread separation, prematurely worn tires, or improper tire maintenance. Subtler signs—such as swerving, loss of vehicle control, hydroplaning, and skidding—may also indicate a tire defect.
