Who Can I Sue For A Tire Defect?
Defective tires are usually the result of one of the following parties, and all can be held legally accountable if we can prove their negligence caused your accident and injuries:
- Tire manufacturer: Defects in the design or manufacturing or the lack of adequate warnings can be valid causes for a lawsuit against a tire manufacturer. If your tread separates or your tire blows out during the course of normal use and without an apparent external factor (such as debris in the road), you may have a case against the manufacturer.
- Tire installer: Sizing and installing tires must be done carefully and performed correctly. Even the best tires can have trouble if they have been installed incorrectly. If good tires are installed on your vehicle improperly, and this results in an accident, you may have a case against the installer.
- Used tire reseller: Thousands of shops throughout the U.S. offer used tires at a discounted rate, and such retailers are obligated to ensure that any tires resold are safe, operable and free from dangerous defects. If they are negligent in this responsibility and sell you defective tires, you may have a case against the reseller.
What If Another Car Had A Blowout That Caused My Accident?
If you’re the victim in an accident due to another vehicle’s blowout, you may be able to sue the other driver if that driver failed to take reasonable care with their tires. If that driver had defective tires, you might instead join that driver by suing the manufacturer, installer or the seller of their faulty tires.
