Tire Defect Lawsuits

The tires on your vehicles are what keep you rolling. You will not get far without four or more good tires on your car, truck or SUV. Blowouts occur every day, and most are caused by worn out tires that are ready for replacement or from hitting an object that damaged the tire. They can also occur for seemingly no reason at all, which is when a tire defect could be the cause. At higher speeds, a tire blowout can be deadly, and if a tire defect caused the blowout, the manufacturer may be liable for any injuries that occur.

When a tire blowout is involved in an injury accident, it is worth investigating whether or not the blowout was caused by a tire defect. Indicators can include new or well-maintained tires that failed without warning. To pursue a tire defect lawsuit against manufacturers, it must be proven that the tire failure was the main cause of the accident. The manufacturers will often argue that the tire blowout was caused by the accident, not the reason for the accident occurring. Or, the defendant’s attorneys may insist poor maintenance of the tires caused them to fail, which is why victims need an experienced auto product defect personal injury lawyer on their side to present evidence to the contrary.

Causes of Defect Tire Blowouts

Retaining the ruptured tire after the accident is critical to determining whether the tire was defective, resulting in failure. An expert can evaluate the tire and others on the vehicle to determine what caused the tire to fail unexpectedly. Defective rims can cause a tire to explode, sidewalls can collapse or the tire bead can be faulty. Some of the most noted tire defects and causes of injury accidents include:

When you or a family member are injured in an accident caused by an unexpected tire failure, it is important to discover whether the tire was defective. If it was and there is evidence the tire blowout caused the accident, the tire manufacturer may be liable for paying monetary damages for related injuries.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
