Orangeburg Tire Defect Lawyer

Tires are an enormously important part of any motor vehicle. Tires grip the road and, if they fail, many motorists can end up sliding off the road or even flipping over. The Stanley Law Group has helped many motorists injured when a tire defect causes an accident. The defects are often invisible to the eye, but they cause a tire to fail and a motor vehicle to become unmanageable. Anyone could be hurt in the collision, including the driver of the car whose tire fails. Contact our law firm. An Orangeburg tire defect lawyer at our firm can discuss what steps to take next.

Who is Responsible for a Tire Defect?

Defective tires can explode or come apart without warning, suddenly making it impossible to control a car. You might be riding in a vehicle when a tire malfunctions and suddenly find yourself careening toward the shoulder or even jumping into oncoming traffic. Similarly, you might be minding your own business when a vehicle with a defective tire suddenly springs into your lane.

Some of the most common defects include:

  • Defective belts. The belts might be too large or too small, which can lead to blowouts.
  • Poor bonding. Tread separation often results when bonding breaks down, and sometimes the bonding was defective as soon as the tire came off the assembly line.
  • Sidewall defects. The sidewall might be too weak, which leads to failure when the tire is inflated.
  • Improper mounting. A defect can arise when the tire is mounted onto the rim. The tire eventually fails after some use.

Manufacturers owe a duty to the public to only sell safe products. When a defect makes the product dangerous, innocent people are injured out on the road.

In other situations, a mechanic should have noticed a defect with the tires but not said anything. They could also be legally liable in that situation because their actions were negligent.

Our legal team can meet to go over your memories of what happened. Ideally, you would have the tire in your possession so we could inspect it, but that’s not always possible. We might try to retrieve the shredded remains from the side of the road, but they might no longer be there. In any event, we can strategize for ways to make your case. Let us use our legal knowledge to determine the best way to proceed for financial compensation. Sometimes, tires are recalled because of widespread defects, and we can investigate whether your tire was on the recall list.

Tire accidents are scary. Many people suffer horrifying injuries because they couldn’t stop their car or steer it to safety. Call The Stanley Law Group to discuss your legal rights and obligations. A car accident based on a defect is different from other car accident cases. We typically need different evidence, and the defendant’s ability to pay is often greater. An Orangeburg tire defect lawyer can explain the differences in a free consultation.
