Defective Tire Attorneys in Savannah, GA

Serving Clients Throughout the State of Georgia

Unfortunately, there are times when a manufacturer doesn’t realize there is a safety issue with one of their products. When companies don’t realize such mistakes, unsuspecting people can end up being injured or killed in a car accident when the product fails to work as it was intended to.

If you have been seriously injured because of defective tires, you might be able to take legal action against the tire manufacturer. Our experienced team of attorneys has the resources to hold the negligent party responsible for the damages you sustained. Let us help you obtain the justice you deserve.

Common Types of Tire Defects

Common types of tire defects that can contribute to an accident or serious injury include:

  • Tire Tread Separation: The tread on the tire is the outermost part of that makes contact with the surface of the road. Tread separates when it is pulled apart from the inner layers of the tire. When the tread separates, drivers can lose control of their vehicles, which can lead to a devastating or catastrophic injury. This tire defect is often seen in semi-trucks and passenger vehicles. Tread separation is also one of the leading reasons for tire recalls.
  • Tire Blowout: Factors like potholes, driving too fast, and extreme temperature fluctuations can cause tires to blowout. However, tire blowouts can sometimes be caused by design flaws or manufacturing errors too. A tire blowout happens quickly and doesn’t leave the driver very much time to react to the situation, which is why tire blowouts often cause vehicle collisions.
  • Tire Inflation Explosion: Tires can explode during the mounting and inflation process or when they are being used by drivers on the road. Issues with the tire’s sidewall or steel bead wire can cause an explosion in the tire. Tires that explode while being mounted can cause catastrophic injuries. When tires explode, drivers have difficulty regaining control of the vehicle and often end up causing an accident through no fault of their own.

Who Is Responsible for Tire Defects?

When a tire manufacturer doesn’t properly inspect the tires they produce for defects and ends up placing the product on the market for consumers to purchase and use, they can be held liable for any injuries the product inflicts. This means the manufacturer will be responsible for the damages incurred by the consumer. This is called “strict liability.”

You can file a strict liability claim for the following things:

  • Design Defects
  • Manufacturing Defects
  • Product Label Defect
  • Misleading Marketing

If you file a successful defective tire claim, you can recover financial compensation for your injuries and other types of losses, including:

  • Lost Wages
  • Property Damage
  • Medical Expenses
