When Tire Defects Cause Injuries and Death

When we see pieces of tire strewn across the highway, we tend to think it was excessive wear, but it may also be a sign of a defective tire that blew unexpectedly, endangering the driver and passengers in the vehicle and others on the road.

A tire defect is like playing Russian roulette with a fully loaded gun. At some point, the tire will blow or the tread will separate. It does not matter if drivers are driving safely and following the speed limit. It is beyond their control.

At Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, our team of product liability attorneys are passionate about seeking justice and compensation for the victims of car accidents, truck crashes, and motorcycle accidents. Since 1951, we have been handling product liability lawsuits against manufacturers and retailers of defective tires and other defective auto parts.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an SUV rollover, car or truck crash, or motorcycle accident in which a tire blew or tread separated, an experienced personal injury lawyer should investigate. Don’t assume that your accident was unavoidable. Call (713) 222-7211 (toll free 713-222-7211) or e-mail us.

Texas Attorneys Seeking Justice for Victims of Tire Defect Accidents

Most highway tire blowouts and tread separations occur on hot days with fast-moving vehicles. The loud bang of a tire blowout is shocking and scary. It causes most drivers to respond by slamming on the brakes and attempting to steer off the road while still traveling at high speed. Turning too fast (rather than continuing to drive in a straight line) is what causes the car to swerve uncontrollably or the SUV to roll over.

At Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, we work to ensure that our clients — who have often suffered catastrophic head injuries and spinal cord injuries — receive full and fair compensation. We also represent the families of people who lost their lives in highway crashes caused by tire defects from such major tire manufacturers as:

  • Firestone
  • Bridgestone
  • BF Goodrich
  • Continental
  • Cooper
  • Nitto
  • Falken
  • Kelly Springfield
  • Dunlop Tire
  • Goodyear
  • Kumho Tire
  • Yokohama
  • Michelin

Though you may be grieving the loss of loved ones or recovering from significant injury yourself, it is important to obtain legal representation as early as possible so your accident can be properly investigated. We work with a skilled investigator to ensure evidence is secured and witnesses are interviewed.
