Dangerously Defective Tires
In some ways, it may seem as though the tires are the least sophisticated part of a motor vehicle. While the underlying concept of a tire may indeed be fairly simple, the engineering and designs that have been utilized in the tires produced in recent years are far more complex than most people realize. Since the tires constitute the only point of contact between a vehicle and the roadway, it is critically important that they are properly made and free of defects that might unnecessarily endanger the safety of a vehicle’s occupants.
If you have been hurt in a car wreck that was caused by a defective tire then it may be possible for you to hold a negligent tire manufacturer accountable by filing a civil lawsuit. You may be able to obtain financial compensation for your injuries and damages associated with your collision.
