Do You Have a Continental General Tire Failure Lawsuit?

Consult a personal injury attorney in the event your Continental General Grabber TR BSW tires – or a similar model – have caused an accident resulting in you or a loved one sustaining a serious injury. Even if they ask, make sure to never send your vehicle, damaged tire or pieces of the damaged tire back to the manufacturer without first discussing the matter with your lawyer. Compliance with the tire company or their insurance providers may rob you of the crucial evidence needed to win your crashworthiness or defective tire accident case.
