The Hazards of a Defective Tire

When a tire blows out while the car is in motion, those tire pieces can wrap themselves around the car’s wheel and make it impossible for the driver to maintain control of the car. This often results in multi-vehicle crashes or leads to the driver veering off the road.

Defective tires tend to blow when the vehicle is moving at a high speed, which means that the driver and his/her passengers are at the maximum risk of suffering serious injuries.

Common Forms of Defective Tires

There are several ways a tire could be defective and render a vehicle unsafe.

Many defective tire injuries are caused by:

  • Poor tire construction
  • Design defects
  • Tire shredding
  • De-treading
  • Adhesion failures
  • Tread separation

Recent Tire Recalls

Recently, we have seen millions of tires recalled for deadly defects. Some of the world’s largest and most prominent manufacturers and tire companies have issued recalls, including Firestone, Michelin, Bridgestone, and Goodyear.

For example, Firestone recalled 14.4 million tires in 2000 due to a defective tread that peeled on certain models. The peeling tread caused high failure rates and led to fatal injuries. The frequency of tire recalls in America illustrates the prevalent and unacceptable lack of safety in many cars on our roads.
