Defective Tire Attorneys in Baltimore
Are Your Car’s Tires Defective? Ashcraft & Gerel Can Fight for You.
A problem with your vehicle’s tires can spell disaster. According to statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, we see roughly 11,000 car accidents caused by defective tires in the U.S. every year. These accidents cause approximately 200 deaths annually.
If a tire blows while a car is in motion, bits of rubber can get stuck on the wheel, preventing the driver from safely steering and controlling the vehicle. Tire blowouts often cause drivers to crash into other vehicles or to veer off the road.
Injuries due to tire defects are often caused by:
- Poor tire construction
- Tire design defects
- Tire shredding
- Tire de-treading
- Adhesion failures
- Tread separation
