Defective Tires and Car Accidents

Product Liability

When consumers buy tires, they rightfully expect those tires to be safe for a reasonable period of time when properly maintained. Yet defective tires play a role in thousands of car accidents each year.

If you were injured in a traffic collision caused by faulty tires, New York car accident attorney Marc S. Albert is ready to help you recover the financial compensation you need for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering.

When tires are not properly manufactured, their defects can contribute to:

  • Blowouts
  • Tread separation
  • Sidewall failure
  • Bead wire failure

Any of these factors can cause you to lose control of your vehicle and result in severe injuries or even death. Defective tires are often the result of a flaw in the production process or in the design of the tire.

In recent years, thousands of tires have been recalled by major auto parts manufacturers including:

  • Goodyear
  • Firestone
  • Dunlop
  • Kelly-Springfield
  • Kumho
  • Continental
  • General Tire
