Injuries Caused By Tire Defects

Any type of tire failure can cause a driver to lose control of their vehicle, which can lead to dangerous car wrecks. Some common forms of tire defects that can cause injuries include:

  • Tire blowouts and explosions - Sudden loss of tire pressure can be very dangerous, especially when a vehicle is traveling at high speeds. In some cases, a tire that experiences a blowout will not just deflate, but it will explode with great force, which can lead to rollover accidents, roof crushes, and wrongful death. If blowouts occur because of design or manufacturing defects, the tire manufacturer may be responsible for injuries that occur in a crash.
  • Tread separation - The rubber treads of a tire may become separated from the tire's structure. This often occurs in large truck tires because of excessive wear, faulty tire repairs, or manufacturing defects, and it can lead to dangerous or deadly truck wrecks.
  • Improper installation - If a vehicle's tires are not installed correctly, they may fail and cause serious injuries. For example, tires that are not properly inflated may explode. If mismatched tires are mounted on a vehicle, this can impact a driver's ability to steer and handle a car. A tire dealer or service center that makes errors during tire installation may be responsible for injuries that occur as a result.
  • Used or old tires - Tires break down over time, and if older tires are installed on a vehicle, they may render it unsafe to drive. A manufacturer may be held responsible because its tires used materials that were old and unsafe, or a tire shop may be liable if it provided used tires that it claimed were new and safe to use.
  • Inadequate traction - A tire that is defectively designed may not provide the necessary traction needed for full control of a vehicle. This may cause a driver to be unable to slow down or stop in time to avoid a collision.
