Federal Tire Failure Lawsuits Injury Lawyer
Tires and vehicle safety go hand-in-hand. Tire failure can jeopardize the ability of a driver to control or stop a vehicle. It can also increase the risk of rollover and other hazardous accidents. When a tire manufacturer is negligent in providing a safe and reliable product, the results can be serious injury and fatality accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a Federal Tire defect or failure on your vehicle, the company may be liable for the sustained injuries or loss of life.
Tire failure can occur from either design or manufacturer defects that cause premature wear or unsafe conditions within the tire. Most commonly, tire defects cause tread separation problems. While tread can separate from a variety of reasons, it is usually due to wear and tear, poor maintenance or extreme conditions. When a tread separates during normal conditions within the expected life of the tire, it can be due to design or manufacturer defects.
Dangerous Injury Accidents Caused by Tire Failure
When a tire blows unexpectedly, it can be a very dangerous situation. A vehicle can careen out of control, tip or even roll over. The vehicle can be difficult to control, colliding with other vehicles or stationary objects. During the Firestone Tire fiasco in 2000, many people lost their lives and other tire companies witnessed the damage a defective tire could have on one of their competitors. Yet, there still continues to be safety concerns with major tire brands, including Federal Tire.
