Proving Tire Defects

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 client’s claims. We have actual institutional knowledge on how to pursue—and win—tire defect claims.

Cases Our Tire Defect Lawyers Handle

Our Houston tire defect attorneys have extensive experience and a record of success in pursuing numerous types of defective tire cases.

We routinely handle claims involving:

We have taken on major tire manufacturers, including BF Goodrich, Firestone, Goodyear, Cooper Tires, and many others—our attorneys are not afraid to go up against national and global brands in their efforts to obtain rightful compensation for their clients.

Tire Blowouts Caused by Improper Repair or Service

Sometimes tires that were just serviced by a repair shop blow out. Car maintenance and repair shops are obligated to do their jobs professionally. This includes installing the correct tires on the right vehicle and in the proper direction. If a car shop does not use reasonable care in installing or fixing a tire, they may be held liable for any accidents caused by their negligence. When a tire fails, it can lead to a rapid and unpredictable shift in vehicle dynamics, destabilizing the vehicle and increasing the likelihood of a vehicle rollover accident.

Additionally, service centers are often required to inspect a vehicle’s tires when the vehicle is brought in for routine maintenance and repair. If it is determined that the tires have noticeable issues that require further attention, the provider must advise their customers of the issue to prevent blowouts from happening.

This concept is especially true with commercial vehicles subject to strict maintenance standards. Given the weight of a fully loaded semi-truck, seemingly minor tire issues can lead to sudden tire blowouts. For instance, riding on an under-inflated truck tire causes the tire to overheat, which degrades the structural integrity of the tire, leaving the tire more susceptible to sudden blowouts. Given the known risks associated with the negligent repair and maintenance of a tire, evidence showing a tire was neglected may subject the party to liability.

Only a detailed investigation can determine whether negligent repair or maintenance was the cause of your blowout. This requires an in-depth inspection of your vehicle, its tires, and prior maintenance records. As tire defect attorneys, we can perform this investigation for you and make sure any responsible parties are held liable for your injuries.

Blowout Accidents Caused by Tire Defects

Tire defects are yet another possible cause of tire blowout accidents. A tire is defective when it is unreasonably dangerous for everyday use when it leaves the manufacturer. Consumers have little control over whether a tire is defective because the defect is present before the consumer takes control of the tire.

Accidents resulting from tire defects are especially troublesome because they happen suddenly without notice to the driver. Sometimes tire defects are hidden structural abnormalities occurring inside the tire that cannot be seen by maintenance or repair shops. As a result, conscientious drivers get into accidents despite the dutiful maintenance and upkeep of their vehicles. Tire defects regularly cause tragic accidents throughout America.

Determining whether a tire defect caused a blowout is no easy job. It requires experts who are trained in the area, and expert equipment must be used to inspect the inside of the tire to prove that structural errors were in existence during the manufacture of the tire. If you are involved in a tire blowout accident, retaining the tire for inspection is crucial to identifying the party responsible for the blowout.

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.

    If defective tires result in an injury-causing crash, speak with a tire defect attorney. A tire defect attorney can prove a tire was defective and bring a personal injury lawsuit against the manufacturer on your behalf.

  • How can I tell if a defective tire led to my car 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 tire defect attorneys will conduct an exhaustive investigation 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 before 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.
