Tire Failure Lawyers
Every day, innocent drivers and passengers are injured as a result of dangerous and/or defective tires. These failures often times occur suddenly and without warning. Although frequently unnoticed, tires are some of the most important life and safety equipment on a vehicle. Your vehicle’s tires are generally less than 10 inches wide, but they are literally the only thing connecting your vehicle to the road. Because of this, when tires fail as a result of either a defect or a dangerous condition, they can cause catastrophic car wrecks resulting in serious injury or even death.
Consumers rely on tire manufacturers and automotive servicers to ensure that their tires are in good working order and free of defects and dangerous conditions. But when defective or dangerous tires do make it out on the road and cause a car wreck, it is important to know your rights.
If you experience a tire failure that causes or contributes to a car wreck, there are important steps that you should take to preserve your legal rights. First, do not make any repairs to the vehicle or discard the tire before contacting an attorney. Second, make sure that the law firm you hire has experience in these kinds of cases. Not every lawyer has the skills and experience to be able to effectively handle a tire failure case, and the highly technical nature of these cases makes experience all the more important. The Zinda Law Group has the experience to handle your tire failure case and can assist you in making sure that all relevant evidence is preserved and that your legal rights are protected.
Time is of the essence when it comes to preserving your claim, so do not wait. Be sure to preserve any vehicle service records and receipts that you have from any servicer who has serviced your vehicle – even if they didn’t service the tires. Automotive servicers, as the experts in their field, are in the best position to be able to warn consumers about a defective or dangerous tire. The failure by one of these servicers to diagnose, warn, and/or repair these defective or dangerous conditions could directly result in your injuries, entitling you to compensation.
