Do You Have a Personal Injury Case?
Contacting a personal injury attorney should be the first step you take when you or a loved one have sustained a serious injury in an accident caused by a defective Cooper tire. Remember, never relinquish possession of your vehicle, the damaged tire in question, the tire treads and any other leftover bits of the tire before you have a chance to meet with a lawyer. Especially not to the manufacturer! It could hurt your case, as all of these pieces comprise essential evidence ensuring you receive a just settlement.
NHTSA and Cooper Tire Information
The Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) sets vehicle safety standards, so it holds the ultimate authority when demanding that tire manufacturers, such as Cooper, recall models known to be defective, or that fail to meet the federal guidelines for safe tires.
