Potential Tire Failure Lawsuit

Sending defective tires, tire treads or pieces of the tire won’t inherently convince manufacturers to recall damaged products. In fact, if you plan to press charges for injuries sustained from tread failure or blowout, this action may actively hurt your case. Make sure to keep any pieces of critical evidence – including your vehicle – in your possession following the accident, as they may be necessary in a crashworthiness test or other investigation. Always consult with your personal injury attorney before taking any steps to move your case forward.
