Defective Tire Attorneys in Landover
Pursuing Claims against Powerful Tire Companies
Every year, we see roughly 11,000 car accidents in the U.S. caused by defective tires. Approximately 200 deaths result from these kinds of crashes. Given the nature of a tire blowout, vehicles can become difficult to control and can easily result in the driver colliding with another car or an object. And the higher the speed, the more dangerous a defective tire accident can be.
Examples of tire defects include:
- Poor tire design or construction
- Tire shredding
- Tire de-treading
- Adhesion failures
- Tread separation
If you or someone you love was injured in an accident involving a defective tire, seek guidance from the team at Ashcraft & Gerel. Our Landover defective tire attorneys are skilled at pursuing claims against large corporations and manufacturers whose negligence causes injuries.
The Hazards of Tire Defects
Over the years, manufacturers have recalled millions of tires affected with deadly and dangerous defects. Back in 2000, for example, Firestone recalled over 14 million tires due to a tread problem. Certain tire models were susceptible to tread peeling, which led to deadly consequences. Our firm has pursued claims against some of the most prominent tire companies in the world, including Bridgestone, Michelin, and Goodyear.
