The Dangers of Defective Tires
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, tire malfunctions cause approximately 11,000 crashes, 19,000 injuries, and 733 fatalities every year.
Tires tend to cause serious accidents when they:
- Shred or blowout due to air pressure issues, unknown leaks, etc.
- Fall off or spin due to issues with the wheel mounting system or hub
- Skid on pavement, ice, or water due to tread problems
- Explode due to over-inflation or under-inflation
Defective tires can put you in a dangerous position and put your life and well-being at risk. If you’ve been in a car accident caused by a tire malfunction, you know how scary and costly it can be. When a tire problem causes serious injuries, you can incur major medical expenses and suffer financially, in addition to suffering physical pain from accident-related injuries.
The cost is often too much for individuals and families to bear, which makes it crucial for you and your loved ones to understand your legal options.
