Potential Tire Failure Lawsuit

If you, or a loved one, have been seriously injured in a wreck or rollover accident caused in part by a tire tread failure or sudden blowout, then you may have legal action against the tire and vehicle manufacturers for your injuries and losses. It is important to KEEP IN YOUR POSSESSION the vehicle involved in the accident, the tire, the tire tread and any pieces of the tire that separated from the tire during the failure. The vehicle, tire, tire tread and all tire pieces are critical evidence in a vehicle crashworthiness or defective tire lawsuit. Do not send the defective tire or the tire pieces to the manufacturer until you have spoken to an attorney or lawyer.
