Tire Tread Separation / Tire Blow-Out Lawsuits

Failing tires that have caused injuries and death have been portrayed in the news for decades. The Firestone/Ford Explorer combination that led to hundreds of deaths, injuries and a massive recall in 2000, is one of the most notorious defective tire debacles. With the extreme expense paid by Firestone for replacement tires and in lawsuits, it is unfortunate that other tire manufacturers still are producing tires with similar defect problems, including tire tread separation leading to blowouts.

When tire treads separate, the tire falls apart and a blowout can occur. This can be caused by normal wear and tear, poor driving, over-inflation and impact from potholes and other objects. It can also occur on a well-maintained tire under normal driving conditions if there is a design flaw or manufacturing defect. A tire blowout can be dangerous, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle. Many tire tread separation blowouts have caused serious and even fatal accidents, including those initiated by a defective tire.

Tire Defects and Manufacturer Liability

Almost all tire manufacturers have had to recall a tire for defects. Some may be less dangerous than others, or the manufacturer may catch the issue before there are many accidents or injuries caused by the defect. When tire tread separation occurs, it is a very serious issue and is more likely to cause an injury accident. Some recent companies facing lawsuits for injuries caused by tire blowouts from tread separation include:

If you have recently been in an injury accident caused by an unexpected tire blowout from tread separation, make sure to check to see if your tire was under a manufacturer recall. Even if it was not, but you believe it may have been defective, contact us at Conley Griggs Partin LLP. We handle tire tread separation and blowout lawsuits for clients injured in accidents caused by defective tires.

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.
