What to Look For When Identifying a Defective Tire

Defective tires often have manufacturing or design flaws that can lead to accidents. These flaws might include irregular wear, sidewall bulges, or tread separation. If you notice any unusual signs with your tires, it’s vital to take note of them, as they could indicate a defect that contributed to the accident.

In some cases, a recall may have been issued for the tire in question. It’s essential to check whether the tires on your vehicle were subject to any recalls. Information on tire recalls can be found on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website. If your tire was recalled, this information could be pivotal in your case.

Sometimes, the defect might not be immediately apparent. It’s beneficial to have the tire examined by an expert who can determine if a defect was present. This analysis can provide crucial evidence in your claim. 

Who Is Responsible If Your Car Accident Was the Result of a Defective Tire?

Determining who is liable in accidents involving defective tires can be confusing on your own. Liability may rest with the tire manufacturer, the vehicle manufacturer, or even the service center that installed the tire. In some cases, more than one party may be responsible. Establishing liability is crucial for pursuing a claim.

It’s important to gather and preserve evidence that supports your claim. This includes the tire itself, any maintenance records, and reports from tire experts. This evidence will help establish a link between the tire defect and the accident.

In addition to the physical evidence, witness statements and accident reports also play a vital role in establishing liability. These documents can provide additional insights into how the accident occurred and the role the defective tire played. A skilled lawyer can help you gather information for your case.
