WARNING: Please Read The Following

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 crucial to keep in your possession the vehicle involved in the accident, the tire, the tire tread and any pieces that separated from the tire during the failure that you can find. The vehicle, tire, tire tread and all tire pieces are all critical evidence in a vehicle crashworthiness or defective tire lawsuit. Do not send the defective tire or the tire pieces back to the manufacturer until you have spoken to an attorney or lawyer.

NHTSA and Cooper Tire Information

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) – which is a part of the Department of Transportation (DOT) – sets the federal safety standards for tires that all manufacturers must follow by law. When they don’t, recalls happen. Read on for more information about Cooper tires and their NHTSA run-ins.
