Sudden tire blowouts may be caused by defects in your tires. Vehicles have been recalled for manufacturing defects resulting in sudden tread separation and rapid deflation. If your tires are defective, proper maintenance and good driving will not save you from a blowout.
If you have been injured as a result of a car crash and think defective tires may be to blame, our St. Louis defective tires lawyers at Goldblatt + Singer can help investigate whether your tires were up to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) standards.
Every year, defective tires cause accidents and injure thousands of people. When a tire suddenly fails, the driver is caught completely off guard and may not have time to steer the vehicle safely to the side of the road. When a defective tire blows out on a large truck, the results can be horrific for both the driver and the cars around the truck.
Defective tires can fail when the vehicle is driving fast on the highway, rounding a turn, passing a crowd of people or any number of situations that can cause a variety of injuries. Catastrophic injuries from a crash can include severe burns, broken bones and spinal cord damage.
