Corpus Christi Tire Defect Lawyers
Defective Tires Put Everyone on the Road at Risk
A tire blowout or any tire defect will threaten the safety of everyone on the road. Imagine driving beside an 18-wheeler when one of its heavy-duty tires suddenly explodes and strikes your windshield. Imagine abruptly losing control of your car because a front tire deflates without warning. These are just two examples of how a defective tire could jeopardize your safety.
If you or someone you love was injured as a result of a tire defect, you may have the right to take legal action against the manufacturer of the tire or another at-fault party. These cases fall under the realm of product liability, which allows injured consumers to come forward and hold negligent corporations accountable for defective and dangerous products. Due to the complexity of these cases and the fact that your opponent will most likely be a company with considerable resources to counter your claim, it is important to work with an established firm.

Examples of Tire Defects
Identifying a tire defect can be challenging, but we work with investigators and experts in various fields to carefully evaluate the circumstances of a blowout, separation, or another tire-related issue. This can identify what went wrong and who is responsible.
The following are examples of tire defects:
- Tread separation
- Improper puncture repair
- The tire is unsuitable for the vehicle
- Retread failure
- Tire damage during the mounting process
- Manufacturing defects
- Missing tire components
