What if my tire blows out and injures me, my family, or a bystander in Florida?

While most drivers will log many hundreds and probably thousands of miles without so much as an air leak, tire failures can and do occur regularly, particularly here in Florida during the long, hot summer.  While not all tire failures result in a serious accident and not all tire failures are the result of a design or manufacturing defect, the sudden failure of a tire can cause a vehicle to lose control and either roll over or collide with other vehicles.  Tire failures are particularly dangerous when the vehicle is traveling at highway speeds.  When a tire malfunctions and the tire tread separates this is likely to cause a serious car accident which can cause death, paralysis, or loss of limbs.

Any car accident caused by a tire failure involving death or serious injury should be evaluated for a potential tire defect claim.  While not every tire failure is due to a manufacturing defect, it is still important while all of the evidence is still available to contact an attorney to review the accident.  Many tire failures can be traceable to a design or manufacturing defect in the tire and the sooner an attorney reviews the evidence the sooner it can be determined if there was a manufacturing or design defect.  Identifying those cases requires an attorney skilled in identifying and proving the defect in the tire in order to obtain full recovery for a catastrophic injury.  It also takes significant financial commitment as well as a substantial amount of attorney time to be successful and this is a promise we make to all of our clients.

Safercar.gov is a way to search for tire recalls by entering the tire’s brand and model.  Safecar.gov is also a great resource for vehicle safety information as well as recall information for vehicles and products associated with vehicles.  We would recommend everyone visit this site for important information regarding product and vehicle safety.
