It is recognized by tire manufacturers that tire failures, blowouts and detreads are foreseeable events. The manufacturers are well aware that tire treads will wear with proper use, and at some point, will fail if not serviced properly and replaced after their intended period of use has expired. Tire tread separation happens in a number of ways, including being caused by bonding problems in the tire manufacturing process, contaminants introduced into the tire during the tire making process, under-vulcanization, use of old ingredients, and improper sized components. Even something as simple as air being trapped in between the layers of the tire during manufacturing can cause a tire tread separation.
Lawyers in our firm have handled a number of cases involving a tire tread separation. Detreading of a defective tire can result in single or multi-vehicle accidents. That event can also cause vehicle rollovers. The automobile manufacturers all agree that drivers should be able to pull over – not roll over – when a tire detreads. Unfortunately, that does not always happen when a tire fails. Lawyers in our firm’s Product Liability Section are currently handling a number of cases where deaths and disabling injuries have occurred as a result of a tire failure of some kind. If you would like more information on tire failures, contact Rick Morrison, a lawyer in the Section, at 800-898-2034 or by email at Rick.Morrison@beasleyallen.com.
